The 2023 calendar for the FIA Formula One World Championship has been approved by e-vote by Members of the World Motor Sport Council.
The Formula 1 calendar features 24 events, with the addition of the Las Vegas Grand Prix as the penultimate round of the campaign. It will be the third event in the United States joining races in Miami and Austin.
The Bahrain Grand Prix will open the 2023 World Championship on March 5, while the Monaco Grand Prix, on May 28, is retained on the schedule. The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will take its usual place at the season finale on November 26. The Qatar Grand Prix, on October 8, returns after a one-year absence.
The Chinese Grand Prix makes its return for the first time since 2019 on April 16.
Imola has been moved to May for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, taking place a week prior to Monaco.
The Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps has been moved to before the summer break on July 30, while the Dutch Grand Prix will be the only race in August.
Las Vegas will make its debut on November 18 – round 23 of the calendar, just before the finale in Abu Dhabi.
As expected, Paul Ricard and its French GP was dropped from next year’s schedule.
The 2023 F1 calendar will avoid a clash with the 24 Hours of Le Mans as part of the WMSC Members’ efforts to optimize all world championship race calendars.
FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem said: “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. 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 1’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.”
