Super Formula

The Japanese Super Formula Championship is considered the top level of single-seater racing in Japan and regional motorsports in Asia. The series is sanctioned by the Japan Automobile Federation and managed by Japan Race Promotion.

Super Formula is a Japanese open-wheeled racing championship that initially started life as the Japanese Formula 2000 series in 1973. Since then, the championship has evolved into Formula Two, Formula 3000 and its previous guise, Formula Nippon, before becoming Super Formula in 2013.

Racing is closer than most, as all teams currently use the same chassis, supplied by Italian-based company Dallara. Engines for the teams are supplied by either Honda or Toyota, in the form of 2-litre turbocharged units, while tyres are supplied by Yokohama. This closely-matched formula really puts driver talent to the test.

Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2022

The track debuted in 2009 as that year’s Formula 1 season finale, with Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel winning from teammate Mark Webber. 

The Hermann Tilke-designed track is dominated by its 1.2km straight between Turns 5 and 6 – which, with slow-speed corners marking its beginning and end, makes it a honeypot for overtaking moves.

Other highlights include the tricky run through Turns 10 and 11 into 12, which forces the drivers to brake hard with bags of lateral load still on the car. The track was modified ahead of the 2021 race, which shortened the lap slightly to 5.28km.

This high downforce track will average 55 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 63% full throttle with 2 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost, approximately, 22.0 seconds.

Formula 1 Heineken Gran Premio De São Paulo 2022

The Autodromo José Carlos Pace is 4.3 kilometres long and driven in an anti-clockwise direction. The layout features plenty of changes in gradient, which makes it particularly demanding for the drivers and it’s not short of overtaking opportunities, such as the first corner or in the braking zone for Turn 4. The pit straight and the “Reta Oposta,” or back straight, are both designated as DRS zones, which means slipstreaming comes into play.

The Interlagos track is 700 metres above sea level, so the air is more rarified. The transmission systems come in for a hard time, with a driver making around 3,200 gear changes during the Brasilian Grand Prix, so gearbox reliability is a key factor.

This high downforce track will average 36 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 64% full throttle with 2 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost 18.6 seconds.

2022 F1 World Champion, Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen was crowned 2022 Formula 1 world champion after a soaked race at Suzuka on Sunday.

The Red Bull driver dominated in the wet to win his 12th race of the season – just one off the record set by Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel – and clinch the title over challengers Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez.

Verstappen, needing to outscore Charles Leclerc by eight points and Sergio Perez by six at Suzuka, dominated in the wet conditions and a late penalty for Leclerc sealed the title with four races of the 2022 season remaining.

In an unusual situation, there was considerable confusion after the race as it was initially believed full points would not be awarded. Only 29 laps were completed of the planned 53-lap race due to heavy rain and a long red flag. However, the race was not stopped early, it ran to an adjusted time limit and the rules allowed full points to be awarded.

Formula 1 Gran Premio De La Ciudad De México 2022

Mexico City Grand Prix is a motor racing event held at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City. It first appeared as a non-championship event in 1962 before being held as a championship event in 1963–1970 and 1986–1992.

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez sits over 2km above sea level, providing teams with the additional challenge of cooling the cars with thinner air. The track follows the outline of the original 1959 circuit. The section through the Foro Sol baseball stadium is like nothing else in motorsport, with the crowd’s noise almost drowning out the racing cars!

This maximum downforce track will average 52 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 45% full throttle with 3 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost 16 seconds.
