The inaugural Formula One season with twenty-four events will take place in 2023. The Grand Prix of Las Vegas is one of them, and there will also be renewed competition in China and Qatar. The season kicks off with the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 5 and thus begins the Abu Dhabi GP, on November 26.
New for the 2023 season, Formula One has revealed a radical new race calendar with 24 events.
In 2023 calendar, Formula One fans can look forward to the Chinese Grand Prix after three years hiatus and the first-ever Saturday night Las Vegas Grand Prix. Both of these occurrences will take place during the next season.
The Formula One governing body confirmed the calendar on Tuesday, after an agreement between the World Motor Sport Council and the FIA.
The first of two tripleheaders this season features Qatar’s comeback following its debut in 2021 and Monaco’s continued participation despite the latter’s unclear contract status.
It has been decided that neither the French Grand Prix nor an event that was supposed to take place in South Africa that year would really happen.
Bahrain, where preseason testing has already taken place, will be the scene of the season opener on March 5. The season will come to a close on November 26 in Abu Dhabi.
“We are happy to provide you the 2023 program, which has 24 events in a wide variety of locations across the world. There has never been such a high demand to host a Formula One event, therefore striking the right balance is crucial for the future of the sport “Stefano Domenicali, CEO and president of Formula 1, made that statement.
We are thrilled that Formula 1 is continuing to grow, and it is fantastic news that the Championship will be held at a variety of fan-favorite cities throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas, as well as intriguing new ones like Las Vegas.
FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem says the addition of 24 events to the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar is further proof of the sport’s widespread appeal.
The FIA’s ability to successfully manage the sport is on full display with the addition of new venues and the continuance of established events.
The highlights of a Formula One season that set a new standard for excitement
Since the sport’s meteoric rise in popularity throughout the world, Formula One and its American owners, Liberty Media, have been working hard to raise the total number of races held each year. With the postponement of the Russian Grand Prix, the 2022 season will now only have 22 races instead of the previously planned 23. This means there will be 24 races on the program for the very first time.
The schedule has a number of inconsistencies that need fixing. Despite the fact that three of the first four races take place in Asia, these events are always treated as separate contests.
Three more races are scheduled for Imola, Monaco, and Spain after two more in Azerbaijan and Miami to conclude the season.
Since F1 can not combine the Montreal and Miami races, Canada holds its own championship.
Instead of taking place in Hungary before the summer break, as is typical, the Belgian Grand Prix will be held in Spa on July 30. After a brief hiatus during the summer, the 2019 racing season will resume with the Dutch Grand Prix.
Next up is a tripleheader in the United States, Mexico, and Brazil, followed by a doubleheader in Asia with Singapore and Japan, then a standalone race in Qatar (kicking off a 10-year deal, but the country will not host a race in 2022 because of the FIFA World Cup).
After the Brazilian Grand Prix concludes on November 5, there will be a week without any racing before Saturday races make their long-awaited return to Las Vegas for the first time since 1985.
This first race will be followed by the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
From now through 2025, Monaco will host Formula One races.
A new three-year agreement has been negotiated with the Automobile Club of Monaco, ensuring that automobile racing may take place on Monte-world-famous Carlo’s streets until at least 2025. (ACM).
Since its beginning in 1950, this race has been an essential part of the Championship because of the particular challenges it poses to drivers.
With great pleasure, I can now announce that we will be racing in Monaco until 2025, and I look forward to returning to the streets of this legendary Principality for the 2019 Championship on May 28,” Domenicali stated. “I am happy to say that we will be racing in Monaco until 2025.”
