After three months, it's time for Formula 1 to roar back into life this weekend as the 2022 season begins in Bahrain.

A fascinating pre-season testing period indicates that it's all to play for between F1's three big teams, with Red Bull and Ferrari seemingly enjoying a small advantage over Mercedes on the final runs of the last day of testing.

Are Mercedes really playing catch-up? Will Ferrari mount their first strong title challenge since the 2018 season? Can Red Bull do the double?

Looking ahead to the 2022 F1 season and this weekend's season opener are RacingNews365.com F1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Mike Seymour and Thomas Maher.

Also up for discussion is who might be slotting into the battle of the midfield – are Haas set for a much stronger season with the returning Kevin Magnussen teaming up with Mick Schumacher? And will Alpine's "El Plan" bear fruit?
