Below is a list of all the race length options in F1 22.

  • Short – 5 laps
  • Medium – 25% of standard race distance
  • Long – 50% of standard race distance
  • Full – Standard length of a real-world Grand Prix event

At the bottom of the screen, you will find the number of laps each percentage equals out to. Keep in mind that a full-length Grand Prix event is 305 kilometres in length, which equates to roughly somewhere between 50 and 70 laps. So, generally speaking, a “Medium” race (or 25%) will be between 12 and 18 laps, and a “Long” race (or 50%) will be around 35 laps.
