Madrid, March 16 (EFE). – The 2022 Formula 1 World Championship will see 23 grand prix and many new features: one is integrated in Miami (USA), back from Australia, Canada, Singapore, Japan and from Portugal, Styria (Austria), Qatar, Turkey and, most recently, Russia, due to the invasion of Ukraine, which will be replaced to play elsewhere on September 25.
The great novelty of the championship about to begin is the Miami Grand Prix, which will debut in 2022 at the International Autodrome in Miami Gardens, Florida.
In addition, the grand prix for Australia, Canada, Japan and Singapore is once again part of the calendar after two years of absence due to the pandemic.
Those from Portugal, Styria and Turkey are exiting the 2022 program after being part of the 2021 program to cover injuries caused by the pandemic and to ensure as many races as possible.
The Qatar Grand Prix has been added to the 2021 calendar but will not be held in 2022, although it is scheduled to return in 2023, although not in Lusail, but at another newly built track.
Likewise, travel restrictions to the country mean that for the third year in a row, the Chinese Grand Prix will not be held in Shanghai. However, his return is scheduled for 2023.
The invasion of Ukraine by Russia caused the World Cup organizers to withdraw the Russian Grand Prix from the event, in Sochi.
The World Cup kicks off this weekend in Bahrain and ends on November 20 in Abu Dhabi.
