The 2023 Formula One schedule has been announced, with the season kicking off in Bahrain on March 5.
The season will feature a record-breaking 24 races, with China and Qatar set to return, and Las Vegas arriving as the penultimate round for a Saturday night race.
The traditional summer break will remain in August, though date changes see Belgium move to the end of July as a back-to-back with Hungary, while the Netherlands is twinned with Italy after the season resumes.
The season will finish up in Abu Dhabi on November 26.
“We are excited to announce the 2023 calendar with 24 races around the world,” Formula One CEO and President Stefano Domenicali said. “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 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,” added FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.
“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 One’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.”
