Codemasters and EA Sports have announced – and shown – the new changes to F1 22 relating to the Spanish, Australian and Abu Dhabi circuits. These are improvements that make the tracks even more aligned with their real-life counterparts, encouraging competition and overtaking opportunities. A series of changes that is consistent with what is the new era of Formula 1, with the introduction of new cars and regulations for the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship.

All the changes to the F1 22 circuits


  • Turn 10 features a new layout that matches the one introduced in reality for the postponed 2021 race.
  • Turns 10-14 feature updated off-piste areas, as well as several sausage curbs along the circuit.


  • The Albert Park circuit was remodeled using LIDAR data, with more detailed height and curvature. The external areas see the repositioning of the walls and the replacement of the curbs with new photogrammetric versions. The circuit has been modified in several places, with a new layout for curves 1, 3, 6, 8/9 (which replaces the chicane), 11, 12 and 13.

Abu Dhabi:

  • Turn 5 of Yas Marina, where Verstappen overtook Hamilton to win the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, is now modified with the removal of the chicane before the hairpin. The hairpin has also been moved forward, increasing the flow. Turn 9 chicane and 90 degree turns are now a single elbow bend, replacing turns 11-14. Changes also to curves 13-15. These are now rounded around the hotel to allow cars to follow more closely.

We remind you that EA Sports F1 22 will be released worldwide starting Friday 1 July 2022.
