It’s official: Bahrain will open the 2022 season, a new era for the sport from 18-20 March.
The Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2022 will kick off the 2022 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
The motorsport and entertainment extravaganza will take place at Bahrain International Circuit from 18 to 20 March, and it will be the first of 23 rounds in the new season.
The 2022 race will be the fourth time that the Formula 1 season will start in Bahrain. The championship-opener was also previously held in Sakhir in 2006, 2010 and in 2021.
It will be the 18th edition of the Kingdom’s 57-lap race, and the ninth time it will be held at night under BIC’s state-of-the-art floodlights.
The Bahrain Grand Prix is set to be the front-end of a Formula 1 Middle Eastern double-header to start the new campaign, as it will be followed the very next weekend by the second edition of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in Jeddah.
More details on the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2022 will be announced very soon!
