Formula 1 has announced the calendar for 2023 season, featuring a record-breaking 24 races.
As per usual, the first race will kick off in Bahrain on March 5 with the season concluding in Abu Dhabi on November 26.
Two countries are set to return to F1 including with China and Qatar. The new Las Vegas event will make up the season’s penultimate round for a Saturday night race as well.
The traditional summer break will remain in August, though changes to race dates see Belgium move to the end of July as a back-to-back with Hungary, while the Netherlands is twinned with Italy after the restart.
“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,” said Formula 1 CEO and President Stefano Domenicali.
“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.”
