FORMULA 1 Calendar
Race Experience develops an unique FORMULA 1 calendar every year with dates and start times of all grand prixs. We are happy to offer you the FORMULA 1 calendar as part of our premium service and you can receive it for free by following this link. This way, you can view, download and print our F1 calendar for 2023. It seems likely that we will be able to attend races again next year. Capacity, shape and form will differ from race to race depending on the local health & safety situation!
Ultimately, there are 24 races on the FORMULA 1 calendar for the 2023 season. Never before have so many races been scheduled in FORMULA 1. Australia is officially not the first race of the season for the third successive year . The championship will start in 2023 at the circuit of Sakhir – Bahrain. Imola remains on the F1-calander for 2023. Round 23 of 24, we save the best for last, will see Las Vegas rejoin the FORMULA 1-caroussel after an absence of 31 years. Including Las Vegas, USA now hosts 3 grand prixs in 2023 – more than any other country. Unfortunately we again do not see Portugal and Turkey on the 2023 calendar. The Qatar Grand Prix, which made its debut in 2021, has signed a multi-year contract with the FIA, effective from 2023. Losail (Qatar) has been scheduled for round 19.
Noteworthy: China reappeared on the calendar for 2023 as round 4, but has already been cancelled. The last held grand prix in China was prior to the pandemic of 2020 and it looks like we will have to wait a little longer. On the other hand, we say goodbye to the France Grand Prix. Circuit Paul Ricard will not host a Grand Prix in 2023.
Zandvoort, which made its comeback after 36 years in 2021, turned out to be one of our favourites on the calendar. Zandvoort did itself, the Netherlands and motorsport a service by offering a beautiful and tightly organised event! The next race will take place in the last weekend of August in 2023. Nice detail: Max Verstappen managed to win both editions since Zandvoort made its F1-comeback! As a Dutch based ticketing agency, we naturally are biased regarding the F1-raceweekend in the Netherlands. However, we are uniquely positioned to enhance your F1-weekend in our home country.

What is new in FORMULA 1 2023?
1. New drivers
Next season there will be no fewer than four new drivers. Or actually three new and one already experienced driver. Nico Hulkenberg makes his comeback in FORMULA 1 and replaces Mick Schumacher at Haas. After that, Logan Sargaent, Oscar Piastri and Nyck de Vries will make their debuts at Williams, McLaren and AlphaTauri.
2. New Destinations
In 2023, Las Vegas is new on the calendar. The race will take place in the middle of the city – across the Strip and past all the casinos. The race will also take place on Saturday evening, but for the Dutch this will be on Sunday morning. Furthermore, FORMULA 1 will travel to Qatar again at the beginning of October. This year (2022) was not driven there due to the Football World Cup.
3. Six sprint races
The FIA announced that six sprint races will take place in 2023. This year the sessions will take place in Azerbaijan, Austria, Belgium, Qatar, the United States (Austin) and Brazil. Austria and Brazil have already had a sprint race this year, the other destinations are new. According to the FIA, these destinations were chosen because of the overtaking opportunities, the long straights and how exciting the duels between the drivers can be.
Max Verstappen is World Champion in 2021 & 2022!
MAX VERSTAPPEN IS WORLD CHAMPION AGAIN! It is still hard for Dutch people to comprehend, every time we speak these words aloud. What an achievement of the 25 year old Flying Dutchman. And what a way to become World Champion in 2021. Goose bumps rising when thinking about the thriller in Abu Dhabi! The 2022 World Title was an easier prey then the 2021-down-to-the-last-lap show. Although Ferrari often looked quicker out of the box in 2022, the Maranello based F1-team failed to capitalise when they were ahead. Red Bull developed the car significantly to the point where its leading the pack. We are anxious to know how next years development race will conclude.
Ahead of the new FORMULA 1 season, in which the whole of the Netherlands will encourage Verstappen again, we sum up some Max’ facts of last championships:
- Most wins in a single season – 15;
- Most points in a championship – 454;
- Most wins a season outside pole position – 9;
- Wins from the most different grid slots in a year – 7;
- Biggest point deficit overturned to become champion – 46.
- Max Verstappen is the first Dutch successive World Champion;
- The Dutch driver achieved in 2022: 14 victories, 7 pole positions and 16 podiums (Brazil and Abu Dhabi races still to come);
- The Flying Dutchman made a point of winning races whilst not starting on pole position – 8 out of 14 wins came from elsewhere on the grid (Brazil and Abu Dhabi races still to come);
- Max Verstappen finished every qualifying in Q3 (Brazil and Abu Dhabi races still to come);
- The Red Bull driver remains the only non-Mercedes world champion of the hybrid era;
- Max’s biggest winning streak ran from the French GP till Monza and accounted for 5 successive victories;
- Red Bull Racing won the constructors’ championship for the fifth time in history;
- 2022 is the first year with the new cars that have ‘simplified’ aerodynamics on the wings and sides of the cars to enhance racing spectacle.
