Formula 1 is staging its first Sprint event of the 2022 season at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, meaning a change to the usual weekend format.

Following Friday's first practice session at the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari, otherwise known as Imola, traditional qualifying will begin at 16:00 UK time.

Lewis Hamilton claimed pole position at the venue last year (held under F1's standard format), only to be beaten to victory by title rival Max Verstappen on race day.

A second 60-minute practice session is scheduled for 11:30 on Saturday morning, with this to be followed by the Sprint at 15:30, which will determine the grid for Sunday's race.

The main Grand Prix is scheduled to start at 14:00 and run for 63 laps.
