An important thing for every sports bettor is to have knowledge about the events schedules. For Formula 1 there is no exception, that’s why at Online Betting Sports we share with you the latest news, updates and information about the F1 schedule.
Introduction to the Formula 1 Schedule
Formula 1’s iconic racing season is one of the longest in all of sports. The season usually begins in late February with early testing and practice runs for all ten teams. The actual racing season then starts, usually in early March, and will end in November, usually with a race in Saudi Arabia or Abu Dhabi. Each season there are 22 races and in 2022 there are 20 different countries hosting races. The United States and Italy each hold two races this year.
There are 20 different drivers on the grid each season, two for each of the ten teams. This year, Max Verstappen leads all drivers in points and is one of the best F1 picks each week. Drivers race in every race they are able to (barring sickness or injury) and races are usually held every weekend or every other weekend. In the summer there is usually a four-week long break for teams and drivers to get a break from the intensity of the sport.
Understanding the Formula 1 Schedule
While the Formula 1 season is very long, it is not year-round. The season occurs for about 8 and a half months of the year. Drivers have to travel a lot due to how international the sport is and the FIA (Federation Internationale de Automobile) will allow for time for the teams to travel and get accustomed to time zones. Make sure to look at the Formula 1 odds each week too so you can get comfortable with which drivers are the best at each track.
The sport is growing and will host three races in the United States next year, one in Miami, one in Texas, and a third will be hosted in Las Vegas. Formula 1’s schedule is very long and difficult, so the drivers receive a week off between races in many cases, but not every race. Formula 1’s most famous races are Monza (Italy), Monaco, and Silverstone (England) so be sure to watch out for those races on the F1 schedule each season.
