British F4 New format for 2022

The ROKiT F4 British Championship will use a revamped format for the 2022 campaign with the reverse grid being slightly altered.

Race 2 of the British F4 weekend will reverse the top ten qualifying times under the new format unless otherwise stated.

This is a sizeable change from format used in 2021 which was a reverse of the entire qualifying times.

The championship will hold three races per event on some of the UK’s best circuits including Donington Park, Silverstone and Thruxton.

The drivers that qualified outside the top 10 in qualifying will start the second race of the weekend based on their qualifying time.

A reduced points system of 15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1 on a sliding scale from first to eighth will remain for the upcoming season as well as a bonus point for each place gained during the race. This will be judged by the difference between a driver’s starting and finishing positions.

The grid for Race 1 and Race 3 at each event will still be set by the fastest and second-fastest times set by each driver during qualifying.

A bonus point for the fastest lap in all three races will remain in 2022 at all 10 events.

British F4 also boasts an ultra competitive grid with three Formula 1 juniors competing in the series. 

Carlin duo Ugo Ugochukwu and Oliver Gray are linked to McLaren and Williams respectively. Phinsys by Argenti driver Daniel Guinchard is a Mercedes Junior Team member and makes the step up from karting.

The Teams Champions JHR Developments are returning for another assault at the title with Joseph Loake aiming for the British F4 crown with the team.

The season starts on the 21-24 of April at the Donington Park National Circuit. Matthew Rees dominated at Donington last season winning two races seeing off stern challenges from Matias Zagazeta and McKenzy Cresswell on his way to the title.
