This is where Formula 1 plans to hold six sprint races in 2022

In 2022 we will not only have a record number of Grands Prix of 23, also the number of sprint races will be doubled from three to six. Formula 1 has made a proposal for which six locations will get such a sprint race. The Dutch Grand Prix would be one of those six race weekends for a sprint race on Saturday.

Sprint race at Zandvoort

During a meeting between Formula 1 and the team bosses the six locations for the sprint races were proposed according to Autosport. One of the sprint races would be held in the Netherlands at Zandvoort. This sprint race would be held on Saturday 3 September, with qualifying on Friday and the main race on Sunday.

It has also been proposed to hold a sprint race in Bahrain on the first weekend. The Bahrain Grand Prix will now take place from March 18-20. The other proposed locations are the Grands Prix of Emilia Romagna at Imola, Canada, Austria and Brazil. The sprint races in Great Britain and Italy would disappear in this proposal.
