FORMULA 1 ANNOUNCES AMBITIOUS 2022 CALENDAR
Formula 1 has announced the schedule for the 2022 FIA World Championship, bringing tourists back to popular destinations including Monaco, Abu Dhabi and Miami.
Racing fans can choose from 23 Grand Prix events, the most in the circuit’s history, with cities including Barcelona, Budapest, Sao Paulo, Singapore and Melbourne.
“The 2022 season follows an unprecedented two years for Formula 1 in which the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in a revised calendar of 17 races in 2020 and 22 races in 2021, a huge achievement given the international nature of the sport,” an F1 spokesman said.
“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.”
