F1’s 2022 Reserve Driver Lineup

With a team title and a driver title at stake, teams need to start the car even if one of the full-time drivers becomes unwell.

Reserve Drivers are on standby, often at the circuit, during a race weekend. They’re trained to jump into the car at short notice and participate in the race if needed. They can also be called upon for testing and simulator work. 

Antonio Giovinazzi & Mick Schumacher

If one of the Ferrari drivers cannot participate in a race weekend, the team will rely on a familiar face as their reserve driver; Antonio Giovinazzi, who has been a Ferrari reserve since 2017.

He previously raced for the Alfa Romeo but lost his full-time seat at the end of the 2021 F1 season.

Ferrari doesn’t have far to look for another one of their reserve drivers. Just a few doors down is Mick Schumacher, who has stepped up for the 2022 F1 season.

Schumacher made his F1 debut with Haas last year and will share the role with Giovinazzi. (more…)
