The 2022 edition of the Rolex Belgian Grand Prix will take place on Aug. 28. The race is slated to begin at 9 a.m. ET from the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Coverage will be nationally televised on ESPN2. 

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is the defending champion. Verstappen won the rain-filled 2021 competition without racing a single lap. Half points were awarded, which marked only the sixth occurrence of that in the history of F1. Points can only be awarded after two laps are completed. In total, only three laps at reduced pace behind a safety car happened through three hours and 45 minutes. The cars completed in the identical order that they lined up on the grid due to the rainy conditions.

Williams’ George Russell was the runner-up and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton finished in third. 

The Belgian Grand Prix will run over a distance of 44 laps and 191.414 miles. This is the 78th edition of the event and the 67th time it’s been a part of F1. This is also the 55th World Championship race taking place at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. The Belgian Grand Prix serves as the 14th round of the F1 World Championship. The competition represents the start of the second half of the championship after a summer break.

The Belgian Grand Prix will feature five previous winners of the event: Verstappen, Hamilton (2010, 2015, 2017, 2020), Sebastian Vettel (2011, 2013, 2018), Daniel Ricciardo (2014), and Charles Leclerc (2019). 

Verstappen finished in the top three in both of the two free practices leading up to the contest. In the first practice, Verstappen finished in third with a time of +0.069 in 16 laps. In the second practice, Verstappen finished first with a time of 1:45.507 in 20 laps. 

Leclerc was the runner-up in both practices. In the first practice, he finished with a time of +0.069 in 16 laps. In the second practice, Leclerc posted a time of +0.862 in 21 laps. 

Verstappen and Leclerc will have grid penalties for the race because of engine and gearbox changes leading up to the first practice. As a consequence, neither of their starting positions will be higher than 15th. However, overtaking has historically been a realistic occurrence at the event.

The circuit has undergone significant facility and safety facility redevelopment since the 2021 contest. 

Additional run-off has been included for the Eau Rouge/Radillion portion of the course. This was because of the many major accidents in the last few editions of the race. Anthoine Hubert suffered a fatal accident during the 2019 Spa-Francorchamps Formula 2 round. The asphalt has been modified to increase track grip levels. Also, gravel traps have been added to six corners of the circuit: La Source, Radillion, Blanchimont, Les Combes, Stavelot and Pouhon. 

Audi announced just hours before the first practice that it will join F1 as an engine supplier beginning with the 2026 championship. 

Verstappen leads the championship by 80 points in front of Leclerc, and Sergio Perez is third. Red Bull Racing is currently tops in the competition for the Constructors’ Championship. Red Bull Racing leads Ferrari by 97 points and Mercedes by 127 points.
