Due to the ongoing pandemic conditions, China will not be a part of the calendar next year.

“The 2022 season follows an unprecedented two years for Formula 1 in which the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in revised calendar of 17 races in 2020 and 22 races in 2021 – a huge achievement given the international nature of the sport,” F-1 officials said in a statement. “It has been fantastic to welcome fans back to events this year, and we will continue to ensure this is done safely and in line with national guidelines.

“The pandemic has continued to present challenges to the 2021 season, but the entire sport has shown its ability to react and adapt to the challenges as they have arisen.
