Formula 1 has released the calendar for the 2022 season that includes an aggressive 23-race Grand Prix schedule as approved by the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council.

The season will begin in Bahrain on 20 March and finish in Abu Dhabi on 20 November with Miami hosting the first of two races in the United States.

Due to ongoing pandemic conditions, China will not be included on the 2022 calendar. China will be restored to the calendar as soon as conditions allow.

“The 2022 season follows an unprecedented two years for Formula 1 in which the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in revised calendar of 17 races in 2020 and 22 races in 2021 – a huge achievement given the international nature of the sport,” said F1 in a statement.

“It has been fantastic to welcome fans back to events this year, and we will continue to ensure this is done safely and in line with national guidelines.

“The pandemic has continued to present challenges to the 2021 season, but the entire sport has shown its ability to react and adapt to the challenges as they have arisen.

“While we hope the virus recedes further in the coming months for everyone around the world, we will continue to closely monitor the situation and work closely with the promoters and national authorities.”

well, that’s clear from this list is that F1 has decided that the excitement of adverse weather “for the fans” and commentators has precluded safety of rain-free events.
Imola in late April? Rain 80% sure
Sochi end Sept? Cold and windy with a good chance of rain
Suzuka in October? Really? That’s the end of the Typhoon season…
Miami gets 25% rainy days (whole days) in May normally.
Austin end October? Let’s hope they don’t get flooding like last year.

Do you think that F1 is banking on a couple of these races not happening next year, which is why they went to a higher number of races?
