Russian Grand Prix

LONDON: The 2022 Formula 1 calendar will now run to 22 races rather than the originally planned 23, following the decision not to replace the Russian Grand Prix.

It was announced on February 25 that, following meetings between Formula 1, the FIA and the teams, the championship would not race at the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi, which was set to be held on September 23-25.

But it has now been revealed that there will be no additional Grand Prix added to the calendar to fill the gap – meaning the 2022 calendar will run to 22 races.

LONDON: Formula 1 has terminated its contract with the Russian Grand Prix promoter. It means that Russia will no longer have a race in the future. Last week F1 had announced that it was impossible to hold the Russian Grand Prix, which had been scheduled to be held in Sochi on September 2, in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
