The 2022 Formula One season will start in Bahrain on 20 March and finish in Abu Dhabi on 20 November.

The 2022 Formula One season will see a lot of changes in the circuit, in terms of changes of rules and design changes of the race cars as well. Also, this is the first time, the Formula One race cars and teams will use greener fuel with a higher biofuel percentage.

This year, the Formula One cars come with a significant amount of design changes that include the introduction of over-wheel winglets, return of wheel covers that were discontinued since 2009. The Formula One race cars this season will run on larger 18-inch wheels with low-profile tyres, replacing the traditional 13-inch wheels.

The F1 cars this season will also come with redesigned front wing and nose in an attempt to generate consistent downforce during close running. There will be a retro aero feature from the past in order to create a huge amount of downforce ensuring better stability. The chassis of these cars have been built to ensure 48 per cent more front impact energy and 15 per cent additional rear impact energy.

The 2022 Formula One race cars will use the same powertrains as 2021. The 1.6-litre turbo-hybrid engines will be retained by the F1 teams in the upcoming season. They will run on more sustainable fuel. From 2022, the bio-component ratio in the fuel for F1 cars will be increased to 10 per cent from the previous season's 5.75 per cent. These cars will now use E10 fuel in order to reduce their carbon footprint.
