Formula 1 drivers 2022
A total of 20 drivers will take to the grid for the 2022 Formula 1 season. Max Verstappen is the reigning World Champion after beating Lewis Hamilton to the 2021 crown in dramatic circumstances. But who will come out on top in F1's new era?
Max Verstappen heads into F1's 2022 rules reset as the World Champion, having edged out Lewis Hamilton in a thrilling 2021 title battle that reached boiling point on and off the track, and was settled in controversial fashion at the final round in Abu Dhabi.
For 2022, the pecking order could look very different. Red Bull and Mercedes, which put so much effort and resource into last season, will be hoping that they have done enough to stay at the forefront, while the likes of Ferrari, McLaren and Alpine are all looking to make a jump forward.
There will be one new face on the grid in 2022, as Guanyu Zhou steps up from Formula 2 to a seat with Alfa Romeo, while Alex Albon returns to the field with Williams, having sat out the 2021 season after losing his Red Bull drive. Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi have both left the sport.
