What channel is Formula 1 on today? TV schedule, start time for 2022 French Grand Prix

Back in the red. The Ferrari red, that is.

Scuderia Ferrari is back to its winning ways after an early-season “slump” — if you can call it that — that sparked questions about reliability issues and staying power throughout the season. Back-to-back wins by Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc have put Ferrari back into gear, and right back into the race.

Heading into France, there’s still a gap to be made up. Max Verstappen holds the driver’s championship lead over Leclerc (208 to 170), while Ferrari also has ground to make up to Red Bull in the constructor’s standings (359 to 303).

One race could do a lot to change those standings back in their favor.

Formula 1 schedule 2022

There are 22 scheduled events on the F1 docket for 2022, one race shy of tying the mark for longest F1 calendar.

The season started in Bahrain on March 20 and will end with the customary Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, although a bit earlier than usual, in November. If the schedule stands, this will be the earliest end of the Formula 1 season since it ended on Nov. 4 in 2013.

Returning to the 2022 F1 slate are the Canadian and Japanese Grand Prix, both of which were canceled in 2021 amid fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.

The calendar also holds the maiden voyage for the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the customary United States GP taking place in October.

The Russian Grand Prix, originally scheduled for Sept. 25, was canceled because of the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
