Formula 1 Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix

After the Imola Grand Prix was a late addition to the calendar for the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, the race in northern Italy is on the agenda from the start in 2022. Imola wanted to return to Formula 1 for a long time and seems to have found a permanent place in 2022.

Emilia Romagna Grand Prix 2022

The 4.909-kilometre-long circuit southeast of Bologna has seventeen corners with a fairly long straight. The official name of the track is Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari. A long name that is dwarfed by the official name of the Grand Prix: The Formula 1 Gran Premio Del Made In Italy E Dell'emilia Romagna 2022.

Before Imola hosted the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in 2020, the event was better known for the San Marino Grand Prix. The microstate is about 95 kilometres away from the circuit and because the rights of the Italian Grand Prix have been for the Monza circuit for many years, Imola cannot host the Italian Grand Prix.

Before Formula 1 returned to Imola in 2020 some changes were made to the circuit. For example, the pit area has been completely modernised and the Variante Bassa chicane in front of the start and finish has disappeared.

What does the race weekend at Imola for GP Italy look like?

Like in 2021, the Imola Grand Prix will be on the calendar early in the season. FP1 and qualifying will be held on 22 April because it's a sprint race weekend. FP2 and the sprint race will be held on 23 April and the Grand Prix will be held on Sunday 24 April.

What time does the Imola Grand Prix start?

The Imola Grand Prix will be covered in the live blog from an hour before the start. They will turn out the lights at 14:00 for the start of the first GP on Italian soil in 2022.
