The 2022 Formula 1 season kicks off in earnest on March 20th with the Bahrain Grand Prix, but there are some exciting milestones to pass in the next few weeks before we get to Sakhir.

Whilst the debate around the end of the 2021 season rumbles on to an extent, and findings from the FIA investigation into said events are awaited, we’ll soon start to see what 2022’s chargers are going to look like, with a greater sense of intrigue around the unveilings than we’ve had in many a year.

2022 heralds a new era in the sport, with sweeping technical regulation changes coming in with a view to generating closer, more exciting racing thanks to a plethora of aerodynamic tweaks.

All new-look cars, then, naturally makes for a greater sense of anticipation in this off-season compared to most, as we wait and see just how each team has interpreted the new rules and how each car looks in 2022 spec with each team’s livery draped over the top.

The car launch dates have begun to be revealed, too, and here we have a full run-down of when you can catch them…

The 2022 Formula 1 season could be one of the most exciting yet, as teams and drivers enter the unknown with these new rules.

Certainly, Max Verstappen will be hoping he is able to defend his crown in a quick enough Red Bull, whilst Lewis Hamilton will have plans on avenging that dramatic final lap in Abu Dhabi back in December.

Ferrari and McLaren, meanwhile, will be itching for long-awaited returns to the front of the field whilst the likes of Alpine, AlphaTauri, Aston Martin, Williams, Alfa Romeo and Haas will all hope the new rules can help them stir things up and break into the leading pack.
