F1 Will Not Replace Russian Grand Prix for 2022

The 2022 Formula 1 season will remain at 22 races, as F1 will not replace the Russian Grand Prix on its schedule, F1 announced May 18.

When first released, the 2022 F1 schedule featured a record 23 events, including a new race along the streets of Miami and a return to Circuit Gilles Villenuve in Canada. But on Feb. 25, it was announced that the Russian Grand Prix along the former Olympic Village in Sochi set for the weekend of Sept. 25 would not be held amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

In March, the series canceled its contract with the Russian Grand Prix outright.
