Formula One confirms 2023 calendar with the Chinese Grand Prix called off

Formula 1 has confirmed that the record-breaking 2023 season will consist of 23 races after the decision was taken not to replace the Chinese Grand Prix.

The 2023 season will kick off on March 5 – an earlier start than usual – in Bahrain before heading to Saudi Arabia.

Following the Australian Grand Prix, the championship will move to the United States of America for the second-ever Miami Grand Prix before it heads back to Italy for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix that will take place a week prior to Monaco.

Following the Monaco Grand Prix, the field will move to Barcelona for the Spanish Grand Prix before making the long trip to Canada. Austria will move forward by a week, kicking off the intense month of July that will incorporate four races within just five weeks.

Great Britain will be next on the schedule before the championship pops up in Hungary with the Hungarian Grand Prix losing the spot of the last race before the summer break which will now be occupied by Belgium.

After the restart, the Dutch Grand Prix will kick off the third leg of the season with the Italian Grand Prix twinned with Zandvoort.

Singapore and Japan are set to host races at the end of September before Qatar returns on the 8th of October. The USA will host its second race in Texas at the end of October before the field makes the relatively short trip to Mexico.

Following the Brazilian Grand Prix at Sao Paulo, Las Vegas will make its debut on November 18 – round 23 of the calendar, just before the finale in Abu Dhabi.
