After a three-year hiatus, the Chinese Grand Prix was scheduled to return, but it has now been postponed due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 situation in the nation. In spite of the uncertainty surrounding their future, Monaco and Spa continue to compete while Qatar also returns after making its debut in 2021.
The 2023 F1 calendar will avoid a conflict with the 24 Hours of Le Mans as part of the World Motorsport Council's efforts to optimize the race schedules for all world championships. This is important because a conflict will undoubtedly split the fan base which is not ideal.
Mohammed Ben Sulayem, president of the FIA, said: "The presence of 23 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." "The addition of new venues and the retention of traditional events underline the FIA’s sound stewardship of the sport."
He continued, "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."
