Emilia-Romagna F1 Grand Prix: UK start time, how to watch and more

F

ormula One travels to Imola in Italy for the fourth round of the 2022 season and the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.

Charles Leclerc defends his sizeable championship lead over a weekend with the first sprint qualifying of the campaign.

This year the 100km will award eight points to its winner down to a single point for eighth place, rather than the top three splitting a paltry six points as was the case last year.

George Russell and Mercedes are, somewhat surprisingly, the de facto rivals for Leclerc and Ferrari after a trio of strong finishes to start what still looks like a tough year for the defending constructors’ champions.

Red Bull and Max Verstappen can expect to regain ground in the standings as the weeks go by, as long as they can get their reliability issues under control.

With a week off before the first European race of the year, the fruits of grid development labor may soon begin to show, but Ferrari are the team to beat for Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and Co at the circuit of the Scuderia.

Here’s everything you need to know before the race…
