The Chinese Grand Prix has been removed from the 2023

The Chinese Grand Prix has been removed from the 2023 Formula 1 calendar and will not be replaced with another race.

Formula 1 has announced that the Chinese Grand Prix will not return to the 2023 calendar despite the country lifting all COVID-19 restrictions. This means that there will be no F1 race in China for the 2023 season.

The race at the Shanghai International Circuit was last held in 2019, but it was cancelled in the following years due to the pandemic.

It is reported that an agreement had been reached to have Portugal host the race as a replacement event, in order to avoid a break between the Australian Grand Prix on April 2 and the Azerbaijan race on April 30.

The 2023 F1 calendar remains unchanged, with a 25-day gap between the Australian Grand Prix on April 2nd and the start of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix weekend on April 28th. This gap is of similar duration as the summer break between the Belgian and Dutch Grands Prix in July and August.

However, the gap between the third and fourth events of the year will still exist, as F1 confirmed a 23-race schedule on Tuesday.

In a brief statement, F1 stated: “Formula 1 can confirm the 2023 season will consist of 23 races. All the existing race dates on the calendar remain unchanged.”


Even though the number of races has dropped from 24 to 23, the schedule still set a new record for the sport, with the 2021 and 2022 seasons sharing the current record for the most races in a single season with 22 races.

The upcoming season will see F1 visiting Qatar for the second time, as it begins its 10-year contract.

Las Vegas is the other new addition to the calendar, with F1 acting as a promoter after adding a third race in the United States to the schedule.
