F1 CEO Domenicali hints at new races from 2023

F1 CEO Domenicali hints at new races from 2023

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has hinted at further new races from 2023 onwards and revealed "other good news will come soon".

The sport has seen its record-breaking 2022 calendar published with 23 races scheduled with the arrival of Miami in addition to the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, which will make its second appearance just months after its debut at the penultimate round of this season.

With Qatar also finding a spot on the calendar after the FIFA World Cup next winter, the calendar will look different in 2023 before the touted good news Domenicali suggested.

Writing in his column for F1.com, Domenicali said: "Next year, we’ve launched the calendar with 23 Grands Prix.

"Thanks to the promoters and the teams, we have adjusted the calendar to start in the middle of March and finish on 20 November, one month before Christmas.

"We were keen to have the right rhythm for the calendar while also keeping the three-week summer break and giving hard-working personnel enough of a break at the end of the season.

"Next year will see the arrival of a new experience in Miami and that comes after the addition of two new venues in Qatar and Saudi Arabia this year.

"To have three new events in the space of six months shows the sport is in a strong place."

"Regarding the future beyond 2022, there will be some other good news coming out soon, which I don’t want to spoil by saying now."

Domenicali has previously spoken of talks with countries in Africa with nations expressing an interest in taking the sport back to the continent for the first time since 1993.

The Italian added: "We are going in the right direction and have reached a point where we can choose where F1 will go in the future.

"We have so many requests to host a Grand Prix. It shows our platform is attractive with more and more governments seeing it as an opportunity to develop their businesses, local economy and awareness of their community. Exciting times ahead."

What do you think?

Oversaturation for drivers and teams, what other sport puts that much pressure on people, accidents will happen, maybe fatalities God forbid.

It's all about the ££££££££, not competition.
