On Wednesday, Formula 1 announced the decision that the 2022 Russian Grand Prix will no longer be replaced. Earlier this year on February 25, the Russian GP was already removed from the calendar for F1 season 2022 due to the war in Ukraine.
In the run-up to that decision, a number of drivers had already indicated that they did not want to start in the relevant GP. Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen and Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel, among others, were very positive about this.
The race in Sochi was supposed to be replaced but now Formula 1 has decided to reduce the calendar for the 2022 season to 22 Grands Prix. A quick return from the GP of Russia does not seem to be in sight either. F1 will not immediately restore the race that has been on the calendar since 2014.
For the coming weekend, the sixth round of the championship, the Spanish Grand Prix, will be held on Sunday 22 May at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona. Charles Leclerc will lead the F1 world championship for the time being with the drivers for Max Verstappen, Ferrari is also proudly at the top of the constructors at the expense of Red Bull Racing
