The 2022 Formula 1 season is set to be the longest ever, with 23 grands prix scheduled on this year’s calendar – one more than in 2021.
But with so many races – and the proposed expansion of F1’s new ‘sprint’ format to six rounds in 2022 – the demand on fans’ time to commit to following every single lap of the season has never been greater than it has before this year.
After the creation of the world championship saw around eight races a season in the 1950s, the F1 calendar expanded dramatically in the seventies with a high mark of 17 rounds in the 1977 season. Over the next twenty years, F1 would generally race between 15-17 times a season, until the new millennium saw the calendar reach 18 rounds for the first time in 2004.
Entering the 2010s, the season expanded to 19 and even 20 races in a year. Ever since Liberty Media assumed ownership of the sport, there has only been one season that has included fewer than 20 races – the heavily pandemic-compromised 2020 season.
Despite the continued impacts of covid on the logistics of traveling across the globe in 2021, Formula 1 still managed to produce a 22 race season last year – the longest ever by frequency of races.
