This weekend, it’s the F-I-eh.
Formula 1 heads back to Canada after the coronavirus pandemic axed the last two years’ races at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, and there’s a wave of red coming to the Great White North.
Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez are dominating the field right now, with the two Red Bull racers sitting 1-2 in this year’s drivers championship standings. This comes after a hot start by Ferrari, which dealt with a DNF from Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz at a tragic Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
Now, the gap between the Red Bulls and Ferrari is widening on the track — and in the drivers standings.

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.
