Formula One will soon announce the 2022 Championship calendar. It is reported that the preliminary calendar will be announced in September 2021. Reports also suggest that Stefano Domenicali, the CEO of Formula One commercial rights holder spoke with investors and confirmed that the sport will be visiting Miami next year. After much anticipation and much controversy, the 2022 Miami Grand Prix will take place in 2022. The Grand Prix is said to be held in the first half of May 2022.

Formula One has been in lengthy talks to host the Miami Grand Prix. However, over the years it received much opposition from locals. However, earlier this year it was announced that an agreement was reached between the sport and the city of Miami to host the event.

Formula One currently holds the US Grand Prix held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The race in Miami is said to be an additional race on US soil to feature on the calendar in 2022. The sport has been looking to grow interest for the sport in the USA and possibilities of adding more US venues in the future has not been ruled out.

The track in Miami will be a temporary street circuit with a vibe of a permanent track. Similar to what we see in Albert Park for the Australian Grand Prix. The track will run in an anti-clockwise direction featuring 19 corners, one main straight, one long back straight, fast-flowing corners and even a fast-curvy long straight. Miami will be the 11th different venue to host an F1 race on US soil

The provisional 2022 Formula One Championship calendar is expected to be announced in September 2021. Additionally, in 2023, the Russian Grand Prix is scheduled to move from the Sochi Autodrome to Autodrom Igora Drive in Saint Petersburg.
