The 2023 Formula 1 calendar will feature a record 24 races, starting on March 5 in Bahrain and ending with Abu Dhabi on November 26.
A meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council approved the 2023 calendar by e-vote on Tuesday, confirming the largest schedule in the sport’s history as races in China and Qatar return and Vegas will make its debut, with only the French Grand Prix disappearing from this year’s schedule.
The United States is the country with the most races as it will host three – Miami is scheduled for May 7, Austin on October 22 and the new addition of Las Vegas on the Saturday night of November 18 – while Italy has two in Imola and Monza.
There are two triple-headers of Imola-Monaco-Barcelona and USA-Mexico-Brazil on the schedule at this stage, although it remains to be seen if China goes ahead on April 16 or if the early races could be reorganized.
Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali says the calendar reflects the interest in the sport from new host locations but also a desire to retain more traditional venues on the schedule.
FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem said that the schedule reflects F1’s growing global appeal, and noted that efforts had been made to accommodate other major motorsport events.
“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,” he said. “In framing the 2023 F1 calendar, WMSC Members have also been mindful of the timing of the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.”
Le Mans is scheduled to take place one week after the Spanish Grand Prix on the weekend of June 10/11.
