The Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2022 will kick off next year’s FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Bahrain International Circuit, it was announced yesterday. The Bahrain Grand Prix weekend will take place from 18 to 20 March, and it will be the first of 23 rounds in the new season. BIC Chief Executive Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa commented: “The 2022 F1 season will mark a new era for the sport, with new regulations substantially changing major elements of the cars. “For us to be given the opportunity to host the first race of this landmark season is a huge honour for us. We thank Formula 1 and the FIA for entrusting us to once again host race number one.” The announcement comes following yesterday’s meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Paris, which approved the new calendar. It was also revealed yesterday that the 2022 seasons of the FIA Formula 2 Championship and FIA Formula 3 Championship will begin in Sakhir in support of the Bahrain Grand Prix.
