Pole Position Posted On 24 February 2022

After last season’s dramatic conclusion, the 2022 F1 season kicks off next month

Netflix’s Formula 1: Drive to Survive has helped people with an F1 shaped hole in their lives since the dramatic conclusion of the 2021 season, however, this month the world’s greatest drivers will once again put the pedal to the metal and thrash it out to find out who really is the greatest driver in the world.

Last year, Max Verstappen won his first ever F1 title, stopping Lewis Hamilton from equaling Michael Schumacher’s record of five titles in a row. With both drivers in their prime, could we be seeing the dawn of a new iconic rivalry in the sport to compete with Niki Lauda and James Hunts great rivalry?

This season kicks off on the 20th March in Bahrain and stretches 23 races, ending on the 20th November in Abu Dhabi. A new car has evolved for the season too. The 2022 regulations have one guiding principle which is to allow closer racing through improved aerodynamics using clever features such as wheel covers and over-wheel winglets.

In the drivers’ seats, the usual comings and going have occurred. Valtteri Bottas has left Mercedes after five seasons and joined Alfa Romeo while fellow Brit George Russell has joined Hamilton at Mercedes. Ex-Red Bull driver Alex Albon replaces George Russell at a new and improved Williams team, while Red Bull have kept their driver pairing with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez in the cockpit.

 

One thing is for sure, this year could see one of the most iconic seasons in F1s history…
