The 2022 Belgian Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Rolex Belgian Grand Prix 2022) will be the 14th race of the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship, to be held at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps on the weekend of August 26 to August 28 2022.


Background[]

All drivers and teams are set to take part in the race weekend, which came a year after the controversial events that led to the race being canceled and half-points being awarded without a true racing lap.

Porpoising dilemma[]

The race weekend will be the first weekend where the FIA will implement the anti-porpoising technical directive, after it came to light that some teams were believed to have used flexi-floors to circumvent and stabilize their cars. Those who have alleged to have been exploiting the rule, such as Red Bull and Ferrari have since voiced criticism on the move.

Circuit revamps[]

Following a number of high-speed crashes at the notoriously-fast and dipping Eau Rouge-Radillon corner complex, including the 2019 Formula 2 crash that claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert, the complex's vicinity has since been revamped with more run-off areas.

Driver disputes[]

In the build-up to the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend, Sebastian Vettel had announced his retirement. Subsequently, Fernando Alonso was announced to be moving over to Aston Martin, with his vacant seat in Alpine announced to be taken over by reserve driver Oscar Piastri. Piastri however denied signing a contract and stated that he wouldn't be driving next year, leading to a dispute which Alpine insisted that Piastri's seat is valid, amid talks of him driving in McLaren replacing fellow countryman Daniel Ricciardo as well.
