The race for the best of the rest is on.

Last time Formula 1 drivers were on the grid, Max Verstappen locked up his second world drivers championship, leaving the remaining four races on the docket somewhat intrigue-free. Still, the second-place race remains something to watch as the season winds down.

Sergio Perez (253 points), Charles Leclerc (252), George Russell (207) and Carlos Sainz (202) are all vying for the No. 2 spot in the standings. After a few weeks off, the series heads to the United States, where the track this weekend hasn’t had a repeat winner since Lewis Hamilton posted four straight victories from 2014-17. 

That could bode well for drivers not named Max Verstappen, who won the 2021 race.

Formula 1 schedule 2022

There are 22 scheduled events on the F1 docket for 2022, one race shy of tying the mark for longest F1 calendar.

The season started in Bahrain on March 20 and will end with the customary Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, although a bit earlier than usual, in November. If the schedule stands, this will be the earliest end of the Formula 1 season since the 2013 season ended on Nov. 4.

Returning to the 2022 F1 slate are the Canadian and Japanese Grand Prix, both of which were canceled in 2021 amid fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. 

The calendar also holds the maiden voyage for the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the customary United States GP taking place in October.

The Russian Grand Prix, originally scheduled for Sept. 25, was canceled because of the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
