Formula 1 2022 is about to get underway, with pre-season testing beginning this week after a deluge of car launches during February.

It's a hugely exciting time of the year, with plenty of question marks and not a whole lot of answers, while a mammoth challenge lies ahead for the teams and drivers as they adjust to life with the new machines over the course of just six days of testing.

Analysing F1's launch season and looking ahead to pre-season testing are RacingNews365.com's Editorial Director Dieter Rencken, Lead Editor Mike Seymour and F1 journalist Thomas Maher.

Also explored in-depth is the recent bombshell from the FIA that Race Director Michael Masi will not continue in his role for the 2022 season, as he is replaced by two new names to lead F1 forward. Is it the right move by the FIA? Or is Masi's ousting mere political posturing?
