Formula 1 – Dense, shorter season with seven or eight « sprint races » in 2022: Domenicali confirms


For F1 drivers and spectators, the 2022 season will indeed be a marathon. After two seasons largely disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, the organizers of the World Championship intend to return to the trend of previous years. With a schedule – and weekends – more dense.

In an interview with Sky Sports, F1 boss Stefano Domenicali confirmed that the next fiscal year will have 23 events if none of them is canceled for health or logistical reasons. It would therefore be the longest season in history in terms of the number of Grands Prix but, paradoxically, not in duration. Football World Cup requires, the lowering of the curtain should be set in mid-November. This year, the last round will take place on December 12, 2021.

The promoters are very satisfied because there is something new and important on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. « In fact, some drivers had expressed their skepticism at the end of the second sprint race at Monza.
