2023 F1 Season Set For Record 24-Race Calender As Las Vegas Makes Debut But French Grand Prix Removed

F1 authorities have confirmed that the 2023 season will hold an unprecedented record 24-race across the season.

Formula 1 governing added that there are plans to add two new tracks to what is already a packed calendar to capitalize on the sport’s increasing popularity worldwide.

The 24-race season will showcase all of this year’s races except the French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard.

The Belgian Grand Prix at Spa has also been confirmed to remain for the season, and the historic Monaco Grand Prix will continue for the foreseeable future.

The 2023 Formula 1 season calender was made public on Tuesday after the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile and the World Motor Sport Council approved it.

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said: “We are excited to announce the 2023 calendar with 24 races around the world. 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.”
