The 2022 Austrian Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Rolex Grosser Preis von Österreich 2022) was the 11th race of the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship, held at the Red Bull Ring on the weekend of July 8-10 2022.


Background[]

Sprint[]

It was the second weekend of the season to hold the Sprint race weekend format. At an F1 Commission in mid-February, the teams and FOM agreed to some changes.

Sprint Qualifying was deemed a success in 2021, hence they will continue this year. As of writing this, there are three confirmed Sprint races to be held at Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Austrian Grand Prix, and Brazilian Grand Prix.[1]

Sprint Format[]

The weekend format remains the same as last year, as follows:[2]

  • Friday
    • A one-hour free practice session with two sets of tires for teams to choose freely, and the Qualifying session with five soft tire sets available only.
  • Saturday
    • A one-hour practice session with one set of tires for teams to choose freely, and a 100 km (60 mi) sprint race (one-third of Grand Prix distance) with two sets of tires to choose freely, with pit stops not compulsory (see table above for new points scoring rules).
  • Sunday
    • Full-distance race with two remaining sets of tires.
Sprint Changes[]

At a F1 Commision in mid-February, the teams and FIA together decided to introduce some changes to the Sprint Qualifying from last year.[1] The changes are as follows:

  1. Pole position title
    • Will be decided with the usual 3-round elimination Qualifying session on Friday before the Sprint. However, the grid for the main Grand Prix on Sunday will still be set by the results of the Sprint.
  2. Name
    • Sprint Qualifying from 2021 was renamed to Sprint.
  3. Points
