Regardless if you think Lewis Hamilton got screwed last season in Abu Dhabi, we can all agree it was the most exciting finish to a Formula 1 season in years.
It’s not the first time a referee made a bad call… or a good call depending on how you look at it. Ultimately, Formula 1 is trying to create a sport where every Grand Prix will be a tight race to the finish line. This is what they’ve promised us for the 2022 Season.
These are the 5 reasons the Formula 1 2022 season will be epic.
Amazing New Liveries on the Cars
We are destined to see some major eye candy in the F1 2022 season and I’m not talking about the super models sipping champagne in the corporate box. The 2022 liveries on the Formula 1 cars are so sexy. If the cars perform as good as they look we are in for an incredible racing season.
Car Designs will Promote Better Racing
Currently F1 cars lose 35% of their downforce running three car lengths behind. The design of the new car is aimed at reducing the “ground effect”. Their goal is to reduce the figures to 4% at 20 meters and 18% at 10 meters. If this actually happens, we could see some serious racing action this year.
7 Key Rule Changes for 2022
The 7 key rule changes we will see in the 2022 Formula 1 season include: 1. Frozen Power Units to level the playing field. 2. A return to a two part pre-season test. 3. Tightening of aerodynamic testing restrictions. 4. A lower budget cap level for racing teams. 5. A new weekend format. 6. Mandatory practice outings for rookies. 7. New tyre regulations (size change from 13 inches to 18)
Additional Grand Prix Venues
America is going to add a Grand Prix to its schedule in Miami and Formula 1 is going to bring back a few amazing venues we haven’t seen in years. Singapore, Australia and Japan are back on the schedule!
Lewis and Max Dogfight
After the controversial ending to the 2021 Formula 1 season, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are going to have the ultimate dogfight for the championship this year. The stage is set for the Formula 1 2022 season to be the best we’ve ever seen.
