Formula 1 is a motor sport discipline that is considered the queen of its class. In 2022, the competition is back and the season promises to be an exciting one. The courses on the Formula 1 circuits will be impressive. AEROAFFAIRES takes you on board its private jets to the top 5 circuits of the 2022 season, which began on 20 March in Bahrain.
The 2022 Formula 1 season and its unusual circuits
The global pandemic has stopped F1 races since 2019, but this year they return with some particularly impressive courses. The calendar for the new 23-race world championship was unveiled on 15 October. The season started on 20 March in Sakhir and will end on 20 November with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. As for France, the Grand Prix at Le Castellet is scheduled for 24 July. This championship promises to be exciting, with the introduction of new regulations. In addition, this is the first time that Miami is part of the Grand Prix destinations, an opportunity to discover a new track.
The Silverstone Formula 1 circuit
From the 1st to the 3rd of July, the Silverstone circuit in England will host the F1 world championship. We had to talk about this original circuit, built on airstrips. Indeed, the Silverstone circuit was originally a deserted Royal Air Force bomber base. The Silverstone circuit is best known for hosting the British Grand Prix every year since 1987. It is one of the most legendary circuits on the Formula 1 calendar, with a 5.891km track and 18 corners. It is also one of the drivers’ favourite circuits because of its layout and fast corners. The lap record was set by Lewis Hamilton who was on home soil in 1 minute and 24 seconds.
AEROAFFAIRES can organise your private jet flight to the UK. It is one of the major players in business aviation. In fact, private jet journeys accounted for 6% of UK air traffic in 2018, with a total of 128,000 trips to continental Europe, and 14,000 flights to destinations outside Europe.
The Spa-Francorchamps Formula 1 circuit
The Spa-Francorchamps circuit is located in Francorchamps, in the province of Liege, Belgium. It will host the world championship from 26 to 28 August. It is one of the legendary circuits of motor sports, which explains its status as the “most beautiful circuit in the world”. Its track length is 7 km. It is considered dangerous by some drivers because of its slopes and winding corners, but that’s what gives everyone an adrenaline rush.
The Zandvoort Formula 1 circuit
The Zandvoort circuit is also one of those that will host the races of the 2022 World Championship season. Absent from the calendar since 1985, it is back on the calendar. It is a Dutch motor racing circuit in a unique location in the dunes some 20 kilometres west of Amsterdam. It is popular for its high speeds and the Tarzan turn, located just after the start line. As it turns 180 degrees, it is one of the best places for exciting overtaking. It is 4.3 km long.
The Monaco Formula 1 circuit
From 27 to 29 May, the Monaco circuit will host the Grand Prix. It is probably the most famous circuit in the world. Its particularity is that it is temporary. Indeed, for each Grand Prix, the city of Monte Carlo builds it for 6 weeks. It is different from the others because it is very slow, the streets are very narrow and it is complicated to overtake, so the drivers’ qualifications are decisive. It is 3.3 km long. It is “the place to be” because it combines sport and glamour. Visiting the city of Monaco during the race offers a unique atmosphere.
AEROAFFAIRES can book a private jet to or from Nice Côte d’Azur (NCE) airport, which is equipped with business aviation terminals and is close to the principality. It is also possible to book a private jet from or to Cannes Mandelieu Airport (CEQ), located 15 minutes from Cannes. We can then organise your helicopter transfer to the Rock, La Condamine, Monte Carlo or Fontvieille.
The Miami Formula 1 circuit
The Miami International Autodrome will host for the first time the Formula 1 International Grand Prix from May 6 to 8. The first race was scheduled to take place in 2021, but was postponed until this season due to the health crisis. The track at Hard Rock Stadium is 5.4 km long and consists of 19 corners with a top speed of 320 km/h. In addition to watching the Grand Prix, spectators will be able to enjoy the swimming pools, Florida beaches and the many shows dedicated to the event. After a flight chartered by AEROAFFAIRES, you will arrive at Miami International Airport or Fort Lauerdale Hollywood International Airport, located just a few minutes from downtown.
Miami International Airport is located between the cities of Miami, Hialeah, Doral, and Miami Springs, the village of Virginia Gardens, and the community of Fountainbleau in Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA.
