F1 schedule 2022: Dates, start times, TV channels and how to watch every Formula 1 race

It’s lights out on the 2022 Formula 1 world championship.

Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton gave F1 fans a season for the ages in 2021. There were crashes, there were words, there was controversy and it all ended up with Verstappen dethroning Hamilton as world champion. (Also, Michael Masi dethroned as race director.)

After an offseason of speculation of retirement after the way the 2021 season controversially ended, Hamilton is returning for another year in a Mercedes car, but this time has a new teammate. After getting a tease at the end of the 2020 season, now-former Williams driver George Russell will now team with Hamilton — perhaps to be Mercedes’ No. 1 driver of the future as Hamilton’s career, presumably, enters its twilight.

Former Merc man Valtteri Bottas heads over to Alfa Romeo, to replace fellow Finn Kimi Raikkonen. After a long, storied and entertaining career, Raikkonen bwoah’d his way into retirement following the 2021 season. May he finally get to have a drink.

It’s a new season with new cars, new tracks and new faces in new places. Here’s how the 2022 F1 schedule shakes out.

Formula 1 schedule 2022

In total, there are 22 scheduled events on the F1 docket for 2022, one race shy of tying the mark for longest F1 calendar.

The season starts in Bahrain on March 20, and ends with its customary Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, although a bit earlier than usual, in November. If the schedule stands, this will be the earliest end of the Formula 1 season since it ended on Nov. 4 in 2013.

Returning to the 2022 F1 slate are the Canadian and Japanese Grand Prix, both of which were canceled in 2021 amidst fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. 

The calendar also holds the maiden voyage for the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the customary United States GP taking place in October.

The Russian Grand Prix, originally scheduled for Sept. 25, was canceled due to the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
