There could be fireworks just in time for the 4th of July.
Overseas Formula 1 returns to the UK this weekend. The 2022 British Grand Prix is scheduled to turn off the lights on Sunday.
It may not be Independence Day in England, but there will still be plenty of thrilling racing at one of Formula 1’s most famous circuits. Red Bull has had quite a run over the last six races, with the team having six top finishes in that span and seven this year overall, after a promising start from Ferrari. Now it feels like the race could go just a little bit beyond the two.
With Mercedes showing signs of life in recent races, there’s a good chance one of Britain’s best, Lewis Hamilton or George Russell, will end up on the podium, especially as Ferrari are still struggling with reliability issues.
(And hopefully nobody lands in the wall this year like Max Verstappen does in 2021.)

Formula 1 schedule 2022
With 22 events scheduled for 2022 on the F1 calendar, one race is close to reaching the mark for longest F1 calendar.
The season kicked off in Bahrain on March 20 and will conclude with the usual Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, albeit a little earlier than usual, in November. If the schedule is in place, this will be the earliest end of the Formula 1 season since it ended on November 4, 2013.
Returning to the 2022 F1 roster are the Canadian and Japanese Grands Prix, both canceled in 2021 due to the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
The calendar also holds the maiden voyage for the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the usual United States GP taking place in October.
Originally scheduled for September 25, the Russian Grand Prix has been canceled due to the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
