From TV screen to Paddock Suite

Let us take you to your next favorite Formula One Race in 2022!

The 2022 F1 calendar just dropped, a year ago I wouldn’t’ve batted an eyelid at that bit of news to be honest. Thanks to word of mouth and my inability to resist good sporting documentaries, I like many newly acquired F1 enthusiast, find myself peeking at short articles relating to the latest drama to unfold on the circuit. Look, Netflix did a good job at promoting the sport, and during the pandemic I said I would learn something new, et voila!

In a time where we were all bound to our lounges and home offices, we found a bit of escapism in following the Netflix series “Drive to survive”. Now that the actual racing is back on, it feels like the drama is even more intense, which has done wonders for the brands and the characters that compete in this real-life race. You throw in the incredible destinations they travel to and increasing fan numbers in attendance, I may start exploring a few package options myself!

Now I haven’t quite settled on a team or a favourite driver, I am still just testing the waters before I am a fully-fledged badge carrying, cap wearing member of a specific stable. There is a lot to consider, like who has the best home track, who makes the best engines and who is the most ambitious driver. I feel the sudden influx of information is overwhelming for now, and I will have to study the finer details at my own 80km/ph! For now, let me have a look at where the races take place, and see how Sportsnation can take me there! Also, which races are you interested in traveling to next year?
