15 October 2021 A record World Cup with Made in Italy as protagonist.

This is how the 2022 Formula 1 season presents itself after the green light to the calendar by the FIA ​​World Council meeting in Paris: 23 races, never so many, with the confirmation of the double Italian appointment on April 24 in Imola and on September 11 in Monza.

No other country will have two races in the 2022 World Cup.

The season will start on March 20 from Sakhir, home of the Bahrain GP, ​​and will end on November 20 with the Abu Dhabi GP. Australia, Japan and Singapore are back with the news of the Miami GP scheduled for 8 May. "An impressive calendar, the result of the great work done by Formula 1 led by Stefano Domenicali and his team, in strong synergy with the FIA", remarked the president of the International Federation Jean Todt. "Over the past two years, F1 has shown remarkable resilience and this has been clearly demonstrated by the continued growth of our sport despite the major challenges of the pandemic. The 23 Grand Prix of 2022 will be an exciting showcase for the brand new cars and I can't wait for it to start, "adds Todt.

"Today is a great day for Italian sport that crowns a year of success: it is official that Italy in 2022 will structurally host, and therefore no longer as a recovery of other GPs lost due to the Covid emergency, two Formula 1 Grand Prix 1, because the Imola GP at the end of April is added to the historic Monza date ", says the president of Aci, Angelo Sticchi Damiani. "A doubly exceptional result - he adds - because Italy is the only nation in the world to have this privilege and because it had never happened in the history of F1 that a single federation, namely Aci, was at the head of the organization of two Grands Prix in the same country. An award that fills me with joy and pride, because it certifies the extraordinary world role of Italian Motorsport and the authority ofAutomobile Club of Italy ".
