Qatar returns after making its debut in 2021. Monaco retains its place on the calendar after a new three-year deal was agreed between the Automobile Club of Monaco (ACM) and F1, while the French Grand Prix has been scrapped. Russia has been axed from the schedule for the second year in a row due to the nation’s invasion of Ukraine.
The calendar was approved by the FIA and the World Motor Sport Council and revealed by F1’s governing body on Tuesday.
The 2023 season begins on March 5 in Bahrain, where pre-season will take place, and finishes on November 26 in Abu Dhabi.
Next year’s F1 calendar has been designed to avoid a clash with the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 10-11.

“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,” FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem said.
“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.”
