F1 2023 calendar confirmed as Chinese Grand Prix question answered

F1 has confirmed that the Chinese Grand Prix will not be reinstated on the 2023 calendar despite the country lifting all Covid restrictions.

The race at the Shanghai International Circuit was last contested in 2019 with the event falling foul of the pandemic in each subsequent year.

It is understood that a deal had been agreed upon that would have seen Portugal step in as a replacement event in order to avoid a spring break from the Australian Grand Prix on April 2 to the Azerbaijan race on April 30.

But this gap between the third and fourth events of the year will remain with F1 confirming a 23-race schedule on Tuesday.

In a short statement, F1 said: "Formula 1 can confirm the 2023 season will consist of 23 races. All existing race dates on the calendar remain unchanged."

Despite dropping from 24 races to 23, the schedule remains a record-breaking one for the sport, with the 2021 and '22 sharing the current benchmark for the most races in a single season at 22.

The coming campaign will see F1 visit Qatar for the second time as it begins its 10-year contract.

Las Vegas is the other new addition with F1 acting in a promotor role after adding a third race in the United States to the calendar.
