Formula 1’s 22 race schedule kicks off with testing in Feburary and runs through to the final in November (2022). Vast numbers of people work in the sport and many of them spend much of the season travelling with the team. 

The season’s schedule is broken into two halves with a month-long summer break inserted into the schedule. At the same time, the FIA regulations require all factories to shut down for 14 days.

This break allows everyone who works continuously to make the F1 racing function smoothly to recharge their batteries
