Formula 1 will be carrying out its 73rd running of the Formula One World Championship, which is recognized by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). Formula 1 is widely recognized as the world’s most prestigious motor racing competition and the world’s most popular annual sporting series since 1950. It has always sought to innovate and constantly push technological boundaries in order to find the quickest route towards victory.
The 2022 championship is expected to see the introduction of significant changes to the sport’s technical regulations.
These changes were intended to be introduced in 2021 but were delayed until 2022 because of the outburst of the COVID-19 pandemic. All the drivers and teams are scheduled to compete for the titles of World Driver’s Champion and World Constructors’ Champion.
