Formula 1 Announces Venues For Six F1 Sprint Events In 2023

Formula 1 has today announced the venues that will host the six F1 Sprint events during the 2023 season, as the number of events doubles next season from three in 2022.

The confirmed locations for F1 Sprint events in 2023 are:

  • FORMULA 1 AZERBAIJAN GRAND PRIX 2023 (Baku City Circuit) 28–30 April
  • FORMULA 1 GROSSER PREIS VON ÖSTERREICH 2023 (Red Bull Ring) 30 June–2 July
  • FORMULA 1 BELGIAN GRAND PRIX 2023 (Spa-Francorchamps) 28–30 July
  • FORMULA 1 QATAR GRAND PRIX 2023 (Lusail International Circuit) 06 – 08 October
  • FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX 2023 (Circuit of the Americas) 20–22 October
  • FORMULA 1 GRANDE PRÊMIO DE SÃO PAULO 2023 (AutÓdromo José Carlos Pace) 3–5 November

The selection of the events came following research to calculate the most suitable tracks for the F1 Sprint format including overtaking opportunities, close racing and high-speed sections. This will ensure competitive on-track action for fans across all three days of the race weekend at the selected Grands Prix.

The Sprint format has been successful in engaging fans and increasing audience sizes. F1 has seen the event generating significantly higher viewership than equivalent events where qualifying replaced the usual practice sessions on a Friday.

Stefano Domenicali, President & CEO, Formula 1

“We have seen a hugely positive reaction to the F1 Sprint events during the first two years of its running, and we can’t wait to bring even more action to fans with six events next year, including our first US F1 Sprint in Austin. The introduction of the F1 Sprint has created a race weekend that includes three days of competitive racing action and brings more entertainment to fans of the sport as well as additional value for key stakeholders including teams, broadcasters, partners, and host venues.”

Mohammed Ben Sulayem, President of the FIA

“Following strong collaboration between the FIA and FOM, and the approval of the World Motor Sport Council, we are pleased to reveal the six events for Sprints for the 2023 season. We look forward to this exciting addition to the calendar.”
