Bahrain GP 2022 Live F1 TV schedule

The 2022 Formula 1 begins at the Bahrain International Circuit, with the Bahrain GP between March 18-20. Find out where to watch the 2022 Bahrain GP in the UK, Australia and the USA with session times where you are


The wait is almost over as the 2022 Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix heralds the start of the new F1 season, so make sure you know where to watch the Bahrain GP on TV in the UK, USA and Australia.

Reigning F1 Drivers’ Champion Max Verstappen is favourite for the race after he topped the testing timesheet, as Red Bull proved that they once again have a car which will be challenging for the championships. Meanwhile his 2021 rival Lewis Hamilton has already admitted that Mercedes will not be challenging for the win in Bahrain

Ferrari looked strong in both tests – Barcelona and Bahrain – so will expect to be fighting for victory, while McLaren, Aston Martin and Alpine all had less than smooth outings. Then we come to Haas who have gone through a ton of upheaval over the winter, removing their title sponsor and replacing Nikita Mazepin with Kevin Magnussen

When is the Bahrain GP 2022?

The 2022 Bahrain GP will take place over the weekend of March 18 to March 20. In a slight change to previous F1 weekends, the media sessions will take place on Friday along with Practice 1 and Practice 2. Practice 3 and Qualifying will be on Saturday’s as usual, and the Race will take place on Sunday.
