Italian GP Schedule 2022: Support Races

Formula 2

A good chance to see the star drivers of the future. F2, the feeder series to F1 has seen many well-known names pass through its ranks. The single-seater cars have an identical chassis, engine and tyres which means it’s all about driver skill and the racing is close.

On Friday the F2 action starts with a 45-minute practice session and a 30-minute qualifying later in the afternoon. The Sprint Race is on Saturday and the Feature Race on Sunday.

Formula 3

Formula 3 is an important step on the road to success in single-seater motor racing. Drivers who do well here usually go on to compete in F2 and sometimes even make the leap to F1.

The F3 schedule starts with a 45-minute practice session on Friday morning followed by a qualifying session for the Sprint race. The Sprint race takes place on Saturday morning and the Feature race takes place on Sunday morning.
