After 13 races, Formula One will resume after its traditional summer break with the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix at the Circuit Spa-Francorchamps in the Ardennes. Last year’s edition was a near washout, so fingers crossed for a bit more clement weather and a grand prix that is actually worthy of the name. It might be the last race at the historic circuit for a while, though, as its contract has not yet been renewed for 2023. 

Max Verstappen’s lead stands at an enormous 80 points and it is hard to see anyone else but him taking the title. It doesn’t mean we won’t get some good races from now until the end of the year, though. And with Mercedes on the up again, who knows?

When is it?

The 2022 Belgian Grand Prix runs from Friday, August 26 to Sunday, August 28. 

What time does it start?

First practice starts at 1pm BST on Friday August 26 with second practice running from 4pm the same day. Both sessions are an hour long. Final practice is at noon BST on Saturday with qualifying at 3pm. 

The Belgian Grand Prix itself is at 2pm BST on Sunday August 28. 

What TV channel is it on?

Sky Sports F1 have near-exclusive live coverage rights in the UK this year and indeed for the next few with their usual excellent team. 

Sky’s qualifying program starts at 2pm on Saturday with their race coverage at 12.30pm on Sunday. Channel 4 also have extended highlights coverage this year, with their coverage details to be confirmed, although they are usually around 6-7pm in the evening on Saturday and Sunday.
