F1 unveils record-breaking 24-race calendar for 2023

F1 has finally unveiled a record-breaking 24-race calendar for the 2023 season.

The calendar was approved by e-vote by members of the World Motor Sport Council, with its curtain-raiser again in Bahrain in early March, representing the earliest start to a season since 2002, and traditionally concluding in Abu Dhabi in late November.

In between, China returns after what will be a four-year absence due to Covid-19, while the eagerly-anticipated Las Vegas Grand Prix runs on November 18 as the penultimate race.

It is clear F1 has signed a new deal with Monaco as that has retained its place on the calendar in its customary late-May slot, sitting in the middle of a triple-header, with Imola and Spain on either side.

Qatar, which staged its inaugural race last season but is absent this year due to it hosting the World Cup, returns on October 8.

The calendar avoids a clash with the 24 Hours of Le Mans as part of the WMSC's efforts to optimise all world championship race calendars.

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: “We are excited to announce the 2023 calendar with 24 races around the world.

"Formula 1 has unprecedented demand to host races and it is important we get the balance right for the entire sport.

'We are very pleased with the strong momentum Formula 1 continues to experience and it is great news that we will be able to bring our passionate fans a mix of exciting new locations such as Las Vegas to the championship with much-loved venues across Europe, Asia and the Americas.”

The calendar is as follows...

March 5: Bahrain

March 19: Saudi Arabia

April 2: Australia

April 16: China

April 30: Azerbaijan

May 7: Miami

May 21: Emilia Romagna

May 28: Monaco

July 2: Austria

July 9: British

July 23: Hungary

July 30: Belgium

August 27: Netherlands

September 24: Japan

October 8: Qatar

October 22: United States

November 5: Brazil

November 18: Las Vegas

November 25: Abu Dhabi

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem said: “The presence of 24 races on the 2023 Formula 1 calendar is further evidence of the growth and appeal of the sport on a global scale.

"The addition of new venues and the retention of traditional events underlines the FIA’s sound stewardship of the sport.

"I am delighted that we will be able to take Formula 1’s new era of exciting racing, created by the FIA’s 2022 regulations, to a broader fan base in 2023.

"In framing the 2023 F1 calendar, WMSC members have also been mindful of the timing of the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.”
