New racetrack and sprint races
One of the major innovations of F1 22 is the presence of the Miami Racecourse. In the new season, the circle is difficult with its tight corners and wide stripes. There are a total of 19 curves and 3 DRS zones (sections where mobile wing is allowed). Players who take advantage of the annual game to live close to the championship experience will find a reason to invest in the game here.
