The 2022 Japanese Grand Prix is scheduled for 9 October 2022 at the Suzuka International Racing Course in Suzuka, Japan. The previous outing was in 2019. 

Making its debut on the calendar in 1987, the 5.807 Km ‘cross-over’, high-speed track remains one of the ultimate driving challenges, with the snaking ‘S’ Curves, the two commitment-rewarding Degners and the white-knuckle ride of 130R. 

This high downforce track will average 48 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 66% full throttle and a pit stop will cost 17.65 seconds.
