On Friday night, following this week’s meeting of the FIA ​​World Motorsport Council, the Formula 1 race calendar for 2022 was presented. At the dawn of the new era, a record number of races will be held, as the draft includes just as many 23 races as they originally did this year.

As might be expected, a second American track will be unveiled as a new venue in Miami, and the field will return to Australia, Canada, Singapore and Japan – but the Chinese Grand Prix will not be held next year either. The Shanghai competition would probably have taken place in April, and was replaced by the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix in Imola, which has been a pop-in for the past two seasons.

Next year’s F1 season kicks off between March 18 and 20 with the Bahrain Grand Prix and then eight months later with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The date of the 37th Hungarian Grand Prix has also been set: the engines will run at the Hungaroring at the end of July. Due to the tight time interval compared to the number of tournaments, there will be seven for double weekends and two for triples.

At the same time, the Formula 2 and Formula 3 racing calendars have been made public: as the two parenting championships will run in parallel again from next year, the former field will accompany the king category for 14 rounds and the latter for 9 rounds. Both series will come to Hungary before the summer break. (Affected rounds are marked with an X in the detailed race calendar below.)
