Formula 1 2023 calendar released: FIA announces record 24-races including China and Las Vegas
On Tuesday, September 20, Members of the World Motor Sport Council voted to approve the Formula 1 2023 calendar.
The World Championship 2023 will open with Bahrain before heading to Saudi Arabia, and then Australia.
Motor sport fans will be relieved to see the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps has remained on the calendar, now taking place before the summer break on July 30.
F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said the sport is seeing demand and coverage like never before and has to make sure the balance is right across the globe.
Domenicali said: “We are very pleased with the strong momentum F1 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.”
