F1 condenses weekend race schedules for 2022

Formula 1 will have a new-look weekend schedule for the 2022 season, with Thursday media days scrapped in a bid to condense events in a record year.

F1 has typically operated four-day (Thursday to Sunday) weekends in its worldwide calendar, with the opening day predominantly for media sessions before the track action begins on Friday.

Thursday’s media sessions will instead now take place on Friday morning, with the two opening practice sessions pushed back to later in the day.

Saturday and Sunday schedules remain the same as 2021; however, there is some uncertainty around weekends that include Sprint Races.
