We break down the key rivalries that will shape 2022 in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast, which previews the new season.

Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell join Edd Straw to look ahead to what is reckoned to be the most unpredictable Formula 1 season opener in years after an intriguing, but inconclusive, pre-season.

The prospects for a repeat of last year’s intense title fight between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen given are evaluated, along with how George Russell’s move to Mercedes might change the dynamics at the front.

With Ferrari appearing to be Red Bull’s closest challenger on pace during testing, we also ask how the battle between Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz might shake out.

And at McLaren, Daniel Ricciardo’s prospects of fighting back against Lando Norris after his 2021 struggles are also evaluated.

We also take a look at each team in the congested midfield pack in an attempt to get some idea of who might lead the way.

And with the all-new rules promising closer, more exciting racing we also take a look at the chances of 2022 delivering on F1’s targets.
