Monaco, Monte Carlo

27-05-22/29-05-22

Monaco is one of the Grands Prix that has been on the calendar since the inception of the Formula 1 World Championship and therefore, is of course back on the 2022 Grand Prix schedule. It is a classic and also one of the most popular races, alongside other legendary circuits such as: Monza and Spa-Francorchamps. The circuit is 3.340 km long and 78 laps are driven through the streets of Monaco. In the breathtaking marina, large stands are built for fans to follow the race. Monaco is labelled as a difficult race because the race is held on narrow roads, tight bends and there is little room to overtake. The drivers’ skills are really put to the test here!

Grand Prix results 2021

Max Verstappen 01:38:56.820 Red Bull
Carlos Sainz Jr. +8.968s Ferrari
Lando Norris +19.427s McLaren

Pole position : Charles Leclerc
Fastest lap: Lewis Hamilton

Grand Prix schedule June

Azerbaijan, Baku

10-06-22/12-06-22

Azerbaijan, also known as the ‘land of fire’, will host the 2022 Grand Prix. This street circuit is only for the best drivers. In the Azerbaijani capital, the streets are even tighter than in Monaco. The circuit is 6 km long and the drivers race 51 laps. Treacherous tight corners are followed by sections where the drivers reach incredibly high speeds. A flawless lap on the Baku City Circuit is almost impossible. At the 2021 GP, Max Verstappen looked set to win, but suffered a blowout on the final lap. Lewis Hamilton then seemed to have the best chances for victory, but he made a mistake at the restart. In the end Sergio Perez managed to take the win!

Grand Prix results 2021

Sergio Pérez 02:13:36.410 Red Bull
Sebastian Vettel +1.385s Aston Martin Cognizant F1 Team
Pierre Gasly +2.762s AlphaTauri

Canada, Montreal

17-06-22/19-06-22

The Canadian Grand Prix is a real gem on the 2022 Formula 1 calendar! The 4.361 km long circuit ‘Ile de Notre Dame’, later renamed Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, was built on an artificial island in Saint Lawrence. No fewer than 70 laps are driven on this pleasant track. Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is surrounded by beautiful gardens and a large number of works of art. The circuit also has a great view of the city of Montreal. A number of tight bends and fast twists are interspersed with two long straights. Excitement and a spectacle are guaranteed in Canada!

Great Britain, Silverstone

01-07-22/03-07-22

A classic for all British fans and our most famous circuit, Silverstone! The track originally served as a military airfield for the British bombers in the Second World War. In 1950 the first Grand Prix was held here. A track with a lot of history! Currently, the drivers race 52 laps on the 5.891 km long Silverstone circuit. Silverstone is without doubt on the Formula 1 programme for 2022. Silverstone is on the F1 race calendar until 2027, after that we hope for a new contract to be arranged, but for now, we can at least enjoy this classic race track.

Grand Prix results 2021

Lewis Hamilton 01:58.23.284 Mercedes

Valtteri Bottas +11.125s Mercedes

08-07-22/10-07-22

The Red Bull Ring returns next season! A circuit where Max Verstappen and Alain Prost are record holders. The Red Bull Ring is 4.326 km long and the drivers race 71 laps on the circuit. In 2021 two races were held in Austria, a double dose for the country! Max Verstappen managed to win both races. The Dutchman took pole position at the GP 2021, drove the fastest race lap, won the race and was in the lead every lap of the race. A special GP because the feeling you get in Spielberg is unique!

France, Le Castellet

22-07-22/24-07-22

The current “Circuit Paul Ricard” returned to the calendar in 2018 after a twenty-five year absence. Circuit Paul Ricard, also known as Le Castellet, is a Formula 1 circuit in France. The track was not always on the calendar, but in 2022 you can expect it back on the racing programme. On the windy surface, the drivers race 52 laps of 5.842 km. The track should certainly not be underestimated. Due to the long straights, the cars regularly reach their top speeds. A track with a lot of excitement and sensation!

Grand Prix results 2021

Hungary, Budapest

“It is very tight and that makes it nice to drive here at high speed. I wouldn’t call it Monaco without walls, but it is definitely tighter than the other circuits we come to.” – Max Verstappen. The tricky Hungaroring circuit is on the Grand Prix schedule next season. This track is also called the ‘Mickey Mouse Circuit’, because of the karting feeling with its sharp corners. On the 4.381 km long track the drivers have to complete at least 70 laps. Last season’s Hungarian Grand Prix was marked by Valtteri Bottas. He braked before the first corner, knocking several cars out of the race and the race was stopped because there was too much debris on the track. What will it be like in 2022?

Belgium, Spa-Francorchamps

26-08-22/28-08-22

As a true Formula 1 fan, this magnificent track should be on your bucket list. Spa-Francorchamps is considered by many drivers as the most beautiful circuit in the world! With some innovations, such as the infrastructure and ‘the bus stop’, the track is still an authentic and historic race track that follows the natural slopes of the landscape. Corner Eau Rouge is a real gem! The drivers race 44 laps on the 7.004 km long track. What also makes Spa-Francorchamps special are the two pit lanes. For safety reasons a second pit lane has been created. The second pit lane is called the ‘bus stop’. The name came about because of a subsidy request for the circuit. Instead of applying for money for the circuit, the money was applied for a bus stop, after which the corner was named the ‘bus stop’. In 2021 fans were disappointed by a rainy day, so hopefully the weather can hold out for the 2022 GP.

Grand Prix results 2021

Grand Prix schedule September

The Netherlands, Zandvoort

02-09-22/04-09-22

It’s great to see that Circuit Zandvoort is on the F1 2022 schedule. In 2020, for the first time in 35 years, this Grand Prix was organised, unfortunately the pandemic threw a spanner in the works and the race was cancelled and moved to 2021. During the renovation of the circuit in 2019 / 2020, in preparation for the F1 race in 2020, the corners ‘Hugenholtzbocht’ and the ‘Arie Luyendykbocht’ were converted into unique bowl corners. In the process, the circuit became slightly shorter to 4.259 km. As a minimum of 305 km has to be covered in every Grand Prix race, the drivers will do 72 laps around the circuit.

Grand Prix results 2021

Max Verstappen 01:30:05.395 Red Bull
Lewis Hamilton +20.932s Mercedes

Italy, Monza

La Pista Magica’. This is what the circuit is called by the locals. The Autodromo Nazionale Monza was built in 1922 in only 110 days. The track is 5.793 km long and the drivers race 52 laps on it. What is typical about this circuit is that there is a lot of speed involved. The fastest lap ever was driven at Monza where Juan Pablo Montoya drove 260,6 km/h during practice for the 2004 Grand Prix!

Marina Bay Street Circuit is known for its night racing. The first Formula 1 night race was held at the Marina Bay Circuit Park in 2008 and a Grand Prix evening race is also scheduled in 2022. The street circuit in Singapore goes straight through the beautifully lit city centre and along Marina Bay. Although it is a street circuit, it was also designed by Hermann Tilke, a well-known race track architect. The spectacular track is 5.067 km long and raced for 61 laps. The track passes several local landmarks, including the Singapore Flyer and the Supreme Court, the passage over the old Anderson Bridge is also a famous landmark.

The 2022 Japanese Grand Prix will be held at the F1 Circuit Suzuka. The track is also known as the Suzuka International Racing Course. For Formula 1 fans, it is one of the most popular circuits. It is also a circuit with some Dutch ‘roots’, because the racetrack was designed by John Hugenholtz, who is better known as the former director of the Dutch Zandvoort circuit. The GP programme in Japan will see the drivers race 52 laps on the 5.807 km long track.

In 2012, the first Grand Prix was held at the Circuit of the Americas, also abbreviated to COTA. Hermann Tilke has created another masterpiece, a circuit full of thrills where he has taken some of his favourite elements from other circuits. The Circuit of the Americas has a length of 5.513 km and will be raced for 56 laps.

Mexico, Mexico-City

28-10-22/30-10-22

The circuit of Mexico is called Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez. For those who speak a little Spanish will know that the word ‘brothers’ appears in it. The circuit was named after the Mexican brothers and Formula 1 drivers: Ricardo and Pedro Rodríguez. These were the national racing heroes of Mexico, and both lost their lives to motor racing. This shows again that racing is a dangerous and extreme sport. Currently, Pérez is the current racing hero in Mexico with a huge fan base. On the circuit, the drivers race 71 laps on the 4.304 km long track, which is 2200 metres above sea level. The track has needed a lot of maintenance over the years due to the uneven ground. In 2022 Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez will be back on the Formula 1 schedule.

Max Verstappen 01:38:39.086 Red Bull

Brazil, São Paulo

11-11-22/13-11-22

Autódromo José Carlos Pace, also known as Interlagos, is a 4.309 km long track. Drivers race 71 laps on the circuit, which is located in a district of São Paulo. In 2020, Formula 1 extended the contract of Interlagos as the Brazilian Grand Prix until 2025 and therefore this sensational packed race is back on the 2022 racing schedule. Last season this race was one to remember as Red Bull protested against Mercedes’ illegal rear wing, which prompted the FIA to introduce a new standard check on the cars. It’s a dog eat dog world when the F1 title is involved!

The Yas Marina Circuit is the new and only circuit in Abu Dhabi. The circuit was also designed by Hermann Tilke and is located on Yas Island, which is about half an hour’s drive from the city of Abu Dhabi. F1 drivers will race 55 laps of the 5.554 km long track. With 20 bends, the Yas Marina Circuit is called the Arabian Monaco. Last season we witnessed a blood-curdling race in which Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton battled for the title. Max Verstappen eventually won the Formula 1 2021 championship after a last lap overtake. We look forward to 2022 where Yas Marina Circuit is back on the F1 schedule.

Bahrain, Sakhir

18-03-22/20-03-22

A race in the desert! In Bahrain, the F1 2022 season will kick off again! The first race will be held at the Bahrain International Circuit, in the village of Sakhir. The circuit has been on the racing calendar since 2004 and will remain on the F1 programme until 2029. In the desert, the drivers complete 57 laps of the 5.412 km long track. As temperatures can reach 35 degrees in March, the race has been run after sunset since 2014 where floodlights are used to illuminate the track. Grosjean suffered a massive crash in 2020 that almost cost him his life. During this crash, Formula 1 safety was again put to the test and the halo, introduced in 2018, probably saved his life.

Saudi Arabia, Jeddah

25-03-22/27-03-22

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is a street circuit in Jeddah, the second largest city in Saudi Arabia. Jeddah was the first to host the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, which was held on 5th December 2021. The race was a spectacle to watch because of the multiple red and yellow flags, crashes and time penalties. We can’t wait for this Grand Prix in 2022. The new circuit was designed by Carsten Tilke, the son of Hermann Tilke who has many Formula 1 circuits to his name. Jeddah Corniche Circuit became, after the Grands Prix of Singapore and Bahrain, the third full evening race on the F1 calendar. The circuit was announced as the fastest and longest street circuit on the Formula 1 schedule. Max Verstappen has said that he finds it a very cool track, but also that the designer is ‘crazy’ – because of the many blind corners and speed of the track. The length of the track is 6.175 kilometres on which the drivers race 50 laps.

The 2022 Australian Grand Prix will be held at the Albert Park Circuit. This beautiful circuit goes around Albert Park Lake. The length of the circuit is 5.303 km and the drivers race 58 laps. The atmosphere in Melbourne is always good, because this is one of the faster tracks on the calendar. Lewis Hamilton set an average of 235km/h in his pole position lap in 2018. He also holds some amazing records going into the new season and will once again look to take the lead with 8 F1 championships next year, currently he is joint 1st with the great Michael Shumacher, who actually holds the lap record in Melbourne from 2004. The 2021 Grand Prix was first rescheduled due to Covid-19 and then the race was cancelled altogether. That’s why everyone is looking forward to the Formula 1 2022 programme, because the Melbourne Grand Prix is scheduled as the third race.
