Formula 1 2018: Official Full Season Race Schedule

Welcome to 2018, race fans! As the world’s fastest and most advanced hybrids, Formula 1 race cars have a special place in Gas 2’s digital heart. As such, the horrible, race-less winters weigh heavily upon us. That’s true. But, there is hope in this new year- and that hope burns ever brighter now that the official full-season schedule for this season of racing has been released!

So, while the new, Next Generation F1 logo is horrific and the sexy sexist grid girls might be gone and the drivers’ safety halo makes the cars look more like the world’s fastest flip-flops than the world’s fastest hybrids, the on-track action is still what this is all about.

You can see when and where that racing will take place using the handy-dandy schedule in the table, below. I’ve also included links to each of the grand prix’ wikipedia entries, so you can be better prepared to cheer on your favorite drivers on race day. Will 2018 fall to Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton? Will Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel keep his head in the game? Will Fernando Alonso- freed from the shackles of Honda’s laughable engine woes- make it to number 3? Not long until we find out!
