Emilia Romagna Grand Prix 2022 start time: F1 practice, qualifying, race schedule on TV – RadioTimes

Your complete guide to the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix 2022 start time, plus full TV schedule for race weekend, including practice, qualifying and the GP itself.
Formula 1 returns this weekend with the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the first European-based race of the season.
It's fair to say the new technical regulations for 2022 have shaken up the pack. Who could have predicted Charles Leclerc would lead the driver standings by 34 points after just three races?
And who would have guessed George Russell would occupy second, Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton would be out of the top three and reigning champion Max Verstappen would suffer two DNFs in three outings?
The current reality for F1 is an unpredictable one, but it all sets up a fascinating onward journey through Europe in the spring and summer months.
Red Bull will be determined to push their man back to the front of the pack as soon as possible, while Ferrari will be desperate to keep developing their car ahead of the pack.
The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix looks set to be another fascinating outing with rain forecast and a sprint race to look forward to on Saturday to determine grid positions.

It's another first for these cars, these new regulations, these monster-size tyres. Rain.
Famously, the great leveller, rain is the chief architect of chaos and wild results in Formula 1 and these cars are yet to face a deluge.
Even the presence of rain itself is unpredictable. Friday's practice could be a washout affair, leaving drivers with very little time in the car prior to qualifying, also on Friday. Saturday will dry up in time for second practice and the sprint, but the Grand Prix itself currently has a 25 per cent chance of rain.
The answer to this question is firmly dependant on the answer to the first question. As mentioned, drivers must turn up and hit the ground running as they could be forced into qualifying with very little time around this circuit at Imola.
Saturday's weather looks clear for the sprint. Any top contenders who fail to light up qualifying could be forced to take a deep breath and put their foot to the floor in the sprint to claim back a few grid places.
Alternatively, if the forecast shifts and the sprint suddenly becomes a wet affair, hopes of anything but a procession will be washed away. No drivers will dare to risk a crash for the sake of a place or two.
Away from the rain and format and onto the actual runners and riders involved. Ferrari are clearly the team to beat having negotiated three tracks with very different characteristics and coming out on top – or close to it – on each occasion.
Most impressively, Ferrari have been consistent. Their car looks graceful and reliable, something that can't be said for any other team on the grid right now. Leclerc was untouchable in Melbourne as he snaked through Albert Park with buttery smoothness.
Red Bull look fast but, to put it bluntly, they must field a car that can make it to the finish line without leaking. Mercedes are increasingly competitive but they still look awkward as they patch up porpoising problems.
