“A big sporting day for fans”- 2022 F1 season finale will be on same day as FIFA World Cup’s opening match

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will start a day earlier than originally planned, coinciding with the F1 season finale.

Football’s global spectacle, the World Cup, was set to begin on November 21st. However, FIFA changed the date. Qatar’s opening match against Ecuador will now take place on the 20th.

Interestingly, the 20th is also the day of the F1 season finale. The preparation for this year’s showdown isn’t as exciting as last year, but it’s still something tens of millions will tune in to.

For F1 fans who also love football, the void left by the end of the 2022 season will be quickly replaced by the start of the FIFA World Cup. In fact, the latter is the most-watched sports tournament in the world.

Qatar is the host for this year’s transfer. Some of the biggest football stars in the world travel to the Middle East to compete for the sport’s ultimate prize.

Preparation for the 2022 F1 season finale is not as tight as 2021

Last year’s title fight was one of the most exciting in the history of the sport. Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton competed with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

Their fight was so close and intense that they advanced to the final on points. It was going to be a showdown for the ages and for most of the race it was Hamilton who was in control.

Unfortunately for the 37-year-old, a delayed safety car race, followed by a series of questionable calls from then-race director Michael Masi, handed Verstappen the world title on the very last lap.

This year’s title race isn’t nearly as intense. It started excitingly as Charles Leclerc and Verstappen competed against each other every weekend. However, mistakes in strategy by Ferrari and bad luck for Leclerc have seen the Dutch driver build a huge lead with nine races to go.

Verstappen leads Leclerc by 80 points. Even if the 24-year-old finishes every race in P2 and Leclerc wins every race, it will be the former’s second title in two years.
