The Chinese Grand Prix will not be replaced on the F1 2023 calendar

For the third year running, F1 will not be racing in China. While the 2023 Chinese Grand Prix was tentatively scheduled for April 16, ongoing uncertainty over its Covid-related restrictions resulted in organizers canceling the event. 

There were plans to replace the Chinese Grand Prix with a different track, but unfortunately, no replacement was found. Chinese driver, Zhou Guanyu, will have to wait another year for a race in his native Shanghai, China, which has a contract to host an F1 race until 2025.

Six Sprint races for 2023

Sprint races are returning in a big way in 2023. F1 will host six sprint races this season, double the number from 2022.

The confirmed 2023 F1 Sprint events are:

  • Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2023 (Baku City Circuit) 28–30 April
  • Austrian Grand Prix 2023 (Red Bull Ring) 30 June–2 July
  • Belgian Grand Prix 2023 (Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps) 28–30 July
  • Qatar Grand Prix 2023 (Lusail International Circuit) 06–08 October
  • United States Grand Prix 2023 (Circuit of The Americas) 20–22 October
  • São Paulo Grand Prix 2023 (Autódromo José Carlos Pace) 3–5 November

What new races will be held in 2023?

The only outright new race for 2023 is the Las Vegas Grand Prix. Taking place under the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip, this high-speed street circuit will see drivers weaving past Vegas icons like Caesars Palace, the Bellagio, and the Venetian.

The Las Vegas Grand Prix will be different from other F1 events, with the race taking place on a Saturday rather than Sunday—in fact, it is the first time in 38 years for a Grand Prix race to be held on a Saturday. This is to ensure broadcasts during prime television hours in the U.S. and favorable hours in Europe, too.

Meanwhile, Qatar returns to the calendar after a cameo during the 2021 season with the fast and flowing Lusail International Circuit.

Which F1 races from 2022 will be missing in 2023?

The French Grand Prix at Circuit Paul Ricard, Le Castellet, has been dropped from this year’s calendar. The circuit’s contract expired at the end of the 2022 season, and after holding negotiations around its future, F1 decided not to renew the deal.

This might come as a relief to some F1 fans, who viewed Circuit Paul Ricard as lacking in personality and thrills. However, that does mean the grid’s two French drivers—Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon—will be without a home Grand Prix for the first time since 2020.
