Formula 1 Bahrain 2022

Formula 1 Bahrain 2022 will take place between 18 and 20 March 2022. From March 10 to 12, Bahrain International Circuit hosted three days of Official Pre-Season Testing for the teams to tinker with their new machines before unleashing them in anger for the campaign opener.

Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has started its countdown to be the title sponsor of the most important sporting event in the Kingdom – the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2022.

Gulf Air’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, Captain Waleed Al Alawi, said: “We have always been extremely proud to be the long title sponsors of the Bahrain Grand Prix. The success of this event is a testament to the commitment and efforts of our leadership and the Bahraini people as a whole. As the world begins to open up again, we are delighted to welcome fans from all over our network and beyond once again to Bahrain as the race continues to prove to be a firm global favourite; garnering our global recognition as a business and tourism destination in the Gulf as well as the home of motorsport in the region.”

Gulf Air has been the title sponsor of the Bahrain Grand Prix since it made history in April 2004 as the first Formula 1 Grand Prix to be held in the Middle East. Since then, the airline has been instrumental in the success of the event and the benefits it has brought to Bahrain’s economy. Gulf Air is a proud ambassador for Bahrain and takes its role in supporting the Kingdom’s diversification in areas such as tourism very seriously.

A fantastic programme of world-class support races will keep the action going all throughout the weekend. Joining F1 on track will be the FIA Formula 2 Championship, the FIA Formula 3 Championship and the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East—making for a fantastic show of non-stop racing.

F2 and F3 will be holding the opening rounds of their respective 2022 seasons in Bahrain, while the Porsche Sprint Challenge will be staging the finale of its 2021/2022 campaign.

Each series will have two races during the Grand Prix weekend, along with practices and qualifying.

Fans will be able to see the future stars of F1 competing in F2 and F3, with this being the first time BIC is hosting a championship round in the F3 season. Meanwhile, the new champion of the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East will be crowned in Bahrain, highlighting the very best of regional motorsport in a series that was born and bred at the Kingdom’s home track.

The FIA Formula 2 Championship is a one-make series consisting of 22 identical cars from 11 teams. It is the chief feeder-series to F1, with many drivers having graduated from F2 and now starring in the top flight, such as Charles Leclerc of Ferrari, George Russell of Mercedes, Lando Norris of McLaren, Alexander Albon and Nicholas Latifi of Williams, Mick Schumacher of Haas, Yuki Tsunoda of AlphaTauri, and Alfa Romeo rookie Guanyu Zhou.

Bahrain will be the first of 13 rounds this F2 season.

The FIA Formula 3 Championship is also a one-make category with 30 identical cars on the grid from 10 teams. Many of the F2 outfits are also competing in F3, which is the official third rung of the “Road to F1” ladder.

There are nine rounds on F3’s 2022 calendar, with Bahrain kicking things off.

The Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East is the leading one-make championship in the region. Launched in 2009, it features talented drivers from all across the Middle East and beyond, competing in powerful and dynamic Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars.
