FIA Formula 2 announce the calendar for the 2023 FIA Formula 2 Championship. Next season will comprise a total of 14 rounds, all support events of the FIA Formula One World Championship, as per the 2022 season.

The teams and the drivers will contest a total of 28 races across 13 countries in 2023. Formula 2 will also visit a new continent for the first time in its history, with the addition of the iconic Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne, Australia.

The seventh season of Formula 2 will begin at the Bahrain International Circuit on March 03-05, before heading to the Jeddah Corniche Circuit for Round 2 on March 17-19. April will see the field take on two street circuits, visiting Melbourne, Australia for the first time on March 31 – April 02 before going to Baku, Azerbaijan on April 28-30.

The campaign will carry on with a triple-header that will start in Imola, Emilia Romagna on May 19-21. The paddock will then travel to Monte Carlo, Monaco on May 25-28, before wrapping up three weeks of intense racing in Barcelona, Spain on June 02-04.

The action will resume four weeks later, with two double-headers in July, starting with Round 8 at Spielberg, Austria, on June 30 – July 02, followed by Round 9 at Silverstone, UK, on July 07-09. Rounds 10 and 11 will take place back-to-back in Budapest, Hungary and Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium on July 21-23 and July 28-30, respectively.

After a summer break, the field will return to the Circuit Zandvoort in the Netherlands, on August 25-27, before travelling to Monza, Italy the following week, for the penultimate round of the campaign on September 01-03. The season will finally conclude at the Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi on November 24-26.

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1

“We are pleased to confirm the Formula 2 calendar for 2023 and look forward to another exciting season where the drivers will battle it out for the title and the chance to reach the highest level of motorsport. The Championship continues to play a hugely important role in nurturing the talent of the future and we are excited to see the next generation of F1 stars take to the track at 14 rounds of the 2023 season, visiting fan-favourite circuits and also travelling to the iconic Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne for the first time.”

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem

“As the final two steps on the junior single-seater pathway, I am pleased that in 2023 FIA Formula 2 and FIA Formula 3 continue to race alongside the FIA Formula One World Championship. There is no better preparation than to compete on these gold-standard grand prix circuits, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the next generation of drivers take on a new challenge with the addition of a round in Australia next year.”

FIA Formula 2 CEO Bruno Michel

“The 2023 F2 calendar will have 14 rounds, the same amount as the current one. In 2022, we’ve enjoyed more action than ever, with a total of 28 races, and we wanted to keep this for next season. The good thing is that there are a lot of tracks who would love to add F2 to their race weekend programme, but we always keep in mind the costs related to more racing. So, we have decided to limit the number of rounds to 14 again for 2023, and we will keep helping the teams to ensure their budgets remain at a proper level.

“As announced previously, we have added Melbourne to the calendar, a fantastic venue both for our teams and drivers, but also for everyone watching and enjoying F2. It will be very interesting to see our cars battling on those streets.”
