Do you think you are the fastest racer when it comes to F1 22? Then prove it in the Braintree Gaming F1 22 Series which gets underway on 17 March and runs... almost until the fuel runs out in the real world Formula 1 season.

On the line over the upcoming months is over R40,000 in cash, shared between fastest lap winners, random draws and the top racers when the final flag is waved. In total, 20 tracks will be raced over four sectors, with the top two racers after each sector heading to a grand final.

Submissions will be accepted across all platforms that feature the game. F1 22 is now available via EA Play and Xbox Game Pass, so there is no reason not to submit your times for the series. If you are looking for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate access, Braintree Gaming has you covered. Buying any product on Braintree Gaming will also see you in line to win a R1,000 voucher.


The series will run as follows:

  • A sector features five tracks you can submit your fastest times for.
  • If you take the top spot for a track, you will earn R1,000 cash.
  • Points will be awarded per leaderboard placement, and completing at least two tracks for a sector will see you placed on the sector leaderboard.
  • Points will be divided by the number of tracks raced in a sector, so consistency is key.
  • Points will be allocated per standing in the track leaderboard as follows: 25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1
  • The top two racers per sector will race the other top finishes of the other sectors to determine the final standings where R10,000 cash will be up for grabs.
  • Every racer that submits a time will be entered into a R500 cash random draw per track.

The submissions will be fastest lap per track, which means you can racer whenever you are able to, submit times and win, while ensuring you can find a road to the finals.


The schedule (which is subject to change) for the first two sectors is as follows:

  • Sector 1
    • 17 - 31 March: Saudi Arabia
    • 31 March - 14 April: Australia
    • 14 - 28 April: Azerbaijan
    • 28 April - 12 May: United States
    • 12 - 26 May: Italy
