F1 2022 race calendar: How many Grands Prix are left?

Formula 1 is in the midst of the biggest season in its 72-year history in 2022 with 23 races planned at premier racing venues around the world.

The series has been in the process of expansion since the owners, Liberty Media, bought it from Bernie Ecclestone in 2017, with a focus on key financial territories, including the Middle East and North America.

All but one of the tracks scheduled to host a grand prix in 2022 have done so before. This season brought a new US race to the calendar in May, as the Miami International Speedway made its debut as the second US event alongside the Circuit of the Americas in Texas. The Florida headquarters contained 19 corners around Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins NFL team.

Many of the circuits the drivers will compete on this year are returning for the first time since 2019, due to Covid-19 disruptions preventing them from staging their regularly scheduled events. The likes of Suzuka in Japan, Marina Bay in Singapore and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Canada are all fan favorites and will be welcomed with open arms after dropping out of the calendar in 2020 and 2021, while the Albert Park circuit in Australia it was revamped during his absence in an effort to provide more exciting racing.

Meanwhile, a number of tracks that stepped in to help fill the calendar gaps left by those events will remain on the calendar, including the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the historic Imola circuit and the Portuguese Grand Prix at Portimao.

The season kicked off at the end of March with the Bahrain Grand Prix and will end with the usual Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in mid-November. F1 will end a little earlier than usual to avoid a clash with the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

There has already been a change to the calendar after Formula 1 stripped Russia of its race in Sochi following the country’s invasion of Ukraine. The race weekend of September 23-25 ​​was not filled and was not replaced.

Despite the length of the season, there will still be the usual summer break ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa.

With that in mind, Formula 1 has emphasized that the calendar is provisional and subject to change, and developments with Covid-19 will no doubt be closely monitored in all nations hosting a grand prix.
