2022 race is make or break for Melbourne in F1

The newly-published 2022 Formula 1 calendar is “make or break” for Melbourne’s Australian GP, according to chief organiser Andrew Westacott. F1 has finally released the whopping 23-race schedule for next year, confirming that Melbourne – having cancelled its races in 2020 and 2021 due to covid – has lost its traditional spot as the season opener. “It is make or break for Melbourne,” he told the Australian publication Drive. “So if we weren’t able to take the 2022 event in Australia, I think F1 would be well within their rights to be looking at alternatives to Melbourne,” Westacott added. However, he insists he is actually “extremely confident” that Formula 1 engines will be fired up in Melbourne next April.
