Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Mercedes's Lewis Hamilton will renew title rivalry at the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix race on March 20.

Following a dramatic end of the 2021 season that saw Red Bull's Max Verstappen clinching the maiden driver's championship, the Dutch will begin his title defence in 2022 against Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton in March 18-20 in Shakhir with Bahrain Grand Prix. It will be followed by another race in the Middle East in Saudi Arabia's capital Jiddah (March 25-27) in a 23-race season.

The winter break will take place from August 1 to August 27 after the Hungarian GP in Hungaroring on July 29-31. The first race after winter break will be the Belgian GP at Spa-Francorchamps on August 28-30.

Verstappen will return to Abu Dhabi for the final race (November 18-20) of the season remembering the sweet memories of his title triumph.

Before heading to Europe and USA in late April-early May, the F1 bandwagon will reach Albert Park in Melbourne for the Australian GP.

However, the schedule may undergo changes, depending on how COVID0-19 pandemic scenario comes into play later in the year.
