Silverstone announces July date for 2022 British Grand Prix

F1 is yet to reveal the provisional calendar for next season, but the British Grand Prix has become the first race to get a publicly known date following an announcement by Silverstone on Friday.

The 2022 F1 British Grand Prix is provisionally scheduled for 1-3 July next year.

It marks a notable date change for the race, which took place on 18 July this year, and could potentially open up more space in July for other events to take place.

Silverstone played host to the first F1 race staged at full capacity since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic after the UK government used this year’s race as a public test event.

Over 140,000 fans attended the race and saw Lewis Hamilton take his eighth home victory, fighting back from a time penalty after a first-lap clash with Max Verstappen to win after a late pass on Charles Leclerc.

A draft 2022 calendar is set to be issued to teams in the coming weeks, but caution has already been urged by some to avoid the use of triple-headers through the season for fear of the impact on team personnel.

This weekend’s Italian Grand Prix marks the third of three race weekends in a row for F1, completing the second triple-header of the year. A third is planned towards the end of the season across Mexico, Brazil and Qatar.

McLaren F1 boss Andreas Seidl said the series should “avoid them completely” in 2022, while Haas team chief Gunther Steiner believed there would be more double-headers next season.

“I haven’t seen the calendar, and it’s not only what we want to do, it’s also when the hosts of the races want the races to be,” Steiner said.

“But in general, everybody knows that triple-headers are very demanding to the personnel, and you feel it again here. It’s the third race in a row, and it is quite hard to do.

“So until we get the calendar, I don’t know what is happening, but I think the aim is to have the least as possible triple-headers. It will not be a standard thing in F1 to have triple-headers.”

The difference between Mercedes’ stumble and the fall of F1 giants

OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.

How Red Bull's dynamic leader shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
