Monaco Grand Prix retained on record 24-race F1 calendar for 2023 | Racing News

LONDON: Formula 1 will have a record 24 races with the showcase in 2023 Monaco Grand Prix retained after some uncertainty about the future.
The ruling FIA announced its calendar approval on Tuesday, with a night race in Las Vegas set to debut as the penultimate round in November and the third United States Grand Prix.
Bahrain opens the season on March 5 with Abu Dhabi hosted the final round on November 26. Monaco will be on May 28 as the eighth race and middle lap of a triple header with Italy’s Imola and Spain.
The calendar also avoids a clash with the Le Mans 24 Hours sports car race, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary on June 10-11 next year.
“The presence of 24 races on the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar is further proof of the sport’s growth and appeal on a global scale,” said FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.
“The addition of new venues and the preservation of traditional events underlines the good management of the sport by the FIA,” the Emirati added.
Qatar, with a race on October 8, returns as a fourth round in the Middle East after not having had a race this year due to the country hosting the World Cup.
China remains on the list despite uncertainty over COVID-19 restrictions, while France, whose race took place at Le Castellet’s Circuit Paul Ricard near Marseille, has been scrapped as previously announced.
