FIA President Jean Todt credited F1 for the continued growth of the sport despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, after the 2022 F1 calendar was released on Friday.

Next year's F1 season will feature a record-breaking 23-race calendar, with the Australian, Canadian, Singapore and Japanese Grands Prix all returning to the fold.

There's also a new race in Miami set for 8 May, with Todt crediting F1, led by Stefano Domenicali, for navigating the sport through what has been a challenging two years due to the pandemic.

"The impressive 2022 FIA Formula 1 Championship calendar is the result of the great work made by Formula 1, led by Stefano Domenicali and his team, in strong synergy with the FIA," said Todt.

"Over the past two years, F1 has shown remarkable resilience. This is clearly demonstrated by the continued growth of the sport despite the important challenges of the pandemic.

"The 23 Grands Prix in 2022 will be an exciting showcase for the all-new cars and I am looking forward to it."

The 2022 F1 season will begin in Bahrain on 20 March and end in Abu Dhabi on 20 November.
