Honda is set to continue supplying engines to Red Bull until the end of 2025. The original deal was supposed to end this year.

I'm super glad to hear this. Been a Honda fan forever, got 3 of them parked in the driveway. One has almost 600,000 kms on it. Kinda hurt being a Honda fan for a couple years there, what seems like only yesterday.

Apparently Red Bull has already reached the same performance with their new car as the 2021 car in the simulator.

The new cars were supposed to be slower.

Probably won't see an actual 2022 until Barcelona, the Haas and Redbull have basically just been livery reveals on 2022 show cars.

Interesting suspension set up on the McLaren.
Pull rod front end, and pushrod at the rear.
The exact opposite of what has been the norm for the last few years.

50% increase in performance? Sounds like Aston Martin are going to take the next step in trying to become contenders.

50% sounds pretty ambitious.

Confirmed. The sprint races are back for 2022.

There's going to be 3 of them and they'll take place at Imola, Red Bull Ring, and Interlagos. They had originally proposed 6 races.

There's been some changes to the format.

-Points will now be awarded to the top 8. Last year only the top 3 received them. 1st will be awarded 8pts, 2nd will be awarded 7pts, and so on down to 8th

-It has also been decided that the driver who sets the fastest time in qualifying (Friday) will be awarded "pole position". Last year pole position was awarded to the driver who won the sprint race.

That's only for the record books.

-Qualifying will continue to determine the starting order for the sprint races and the results of the race will continue to determine the grid order for Sunday's GP.

They also reviewed how points will be handed out for the GP's after last year's Belgian race where the driver's were awarded half points after completing the minimum number of laps behind the safety car.

Going forward:

-No points will be awarded unless they completed atleast 2 laps without a safety car.

-If they complete more than 2 laps but less than 25% of the scheduled race, points will be awarded as follows: 1st (6 points), 2nd (4 points), 3rd (3 points), 4th (2 points), 5th (1 point).

-If they complete more than 25% of the scheduled race but less than 50%, points will be awarded as follows: 1st (13 points), 2nd (10 points), 3rd (8 points), 4th (6 points), 5th (5 points), 6th (4 points), 7th (3 points), 8th (2 points), 9th (1 point).

-If they complete more than 50% but less than 75%, points will be awarded as follows: 1st (19 points), 2nd (14 points), 3rd (12 points), 4th (9 points), 5th (8 points), 6th (6 points), 7th (5 points), 8th (3 points), 9th (2 points), 10th (1 point).

I hope I am wrong, but as a Miami native, that event is going to be a shit show....and that track is no where near water, what's this "marina" bullshit I saw.

FYI, the stadium/track is in Miami Gardens.....not a nice neighborhood. Security will be massive and visible.

Here's a wild trivia part, that was were many of us rode back in the day. That property was known as The Ponderosa. Everyone who raced back in the 70-80's rode there a few times. It was all sugar sand except one spot of hard black dirt, and that's where the stadium sits.

The river (canal) that runs next to the stadium is Snake Creek, it flows into Skylake and then to ocean.

Miami is wildly corrupt....

The mechanics will hate that! The aero guys must have seen some advantage in the tunnel that outweighed the downside of pullrods in the front.

-Michael Masi has been replaced as race director. He'll be offered a new role within the FIA.

Niels Wittich, former DTM race director, and Eduardo Freitas, WEC race director, will alternate as race director. They'll be assisted by Herbie Blash as the permanent senior advisor.

-To assist the race director in the decision making process, a Virtual Race Control Room will be created. It's going to be positioned in one of the FIA offices as a backup outside the circuit.

"In real-time connection with the FIA F1 race director, it will help to apply the sporting regulations using the most modern technological tools."

-Direct radio communication between the teams and the race director has been removed in order to eliminate any pressure from the race director and to allow him to make decisions in peace.

"No, Michael, no. That's not fair..." Grinning

-The unlapping procedure behind the safety car is to be reviewed by the F1 Sporting Advisory Committee and presented to the F1 Commission before the season starts in Bahrain on March 18th.

No surprises really, except the alternating race director role.
They already struggle with consistency, I don’t see how having 2 different guys doing the job week to week will help.
