2023 F1 Season Line-Up Confirmed With Record Breaking 24 Races

The Formula 1 season for 2023 has now been confirmed and it will have a record breaking 24-race lineup.

There has been a lot of excitement and speculation over the 2023 F1 calendar after the announcement that Las Vegas would have its debut year and China would return after a three year absence. And now, the full calendar has been announced by the F1 governing body after it got the approval from the FIA.

Monaco will still be in the season after there were questions raised this year as to whether it would be included next year and Qatar is also coming back into the mix. There were also rumours of the sport going back to South Africa but this has not been included for 2023. A race that a lot of fans will notice is missing is the French Grand Prix.

The 2023 season will kick off on 5th March in Bahrain which is also where the pre-season testing will take place and it will come to a close in Abu Dhabi on 26th November.

CEO of Formula 1, Stefano Domenicali, has announced:

“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.”

FIA President, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, has also commented on the news, saying:

“The presence of 24 races on the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship 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.”
