2023 F1 calendar grows to record 24 races
Formula 1 will see a record 24 rounds held next year, one more than the record 23 rounds of 2022, and three of them will be held in the U.S., highlighting the sport’s growing popularity here.
The calendar for the 2023 F1 World Championship was published by the FIA on Tuesday and includes the new Las Vegas Grand Prix first announced in March.
Scheduled for Nov. 18, the race will take place on a Saturday instead of the usual Sunday schedule. It’s the penultimate round and will take place at night to show off the lights of the famous strip which will form part of the circuit.
Also included is the Miami Grand Prix which held its first round this year, as well as the more established United States Grand Prix in Austin.
The new calendar also sees the return of the Chinese Grand Prix, a round that hasn’t been held since 2019 due to pandemic-related travel restrictions. The Qatar Grand Prix also returns after a 1-year hiatus.
The French Grand Prix didn’t make the calendar, although organizers are keen to host future races. Meanwhile, the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in Italy, which was originally added to the 2020 calendar to fill in for missed rounds during the height of the pandemic, looks to have become a permanent fixture on the calendar with its continued repeated inclusion.
