The 2022 Formula One season is already in full swing, and the new FIA regulations have clearly made an impact.

Ferrari and Red Bull are now firmly leading the way in the battle for the drivers’ and constructors’ championships.

Meanwhile, Mercedes and Aston Martin have been left behind and face an uphill battle if they want to get back to where they want to be as the season progresses.

Now the sport will move to the East Coast of the United States for a wonderfully picturesque race in Florida, with the Miami Grand Prix.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the first day of action at the Miami Grand Prix.
