Formula 1 has announced a record-breaking schedule for 2023.

Two more races have been added to the calendar, making 2023 the first time the category has ever raced 24 times in a year.

An inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix has also moved a step closer to confirmation with dates set in November. It is one of many crazy details to emerge from the schedule announced on Wednesday morning, including:

— The return of the Chinese Grand Prix and the Qatar Grand Prix.

— The season will start in Bahrain on March 5 and finish in Abu Dhabi, more than nine months later on November 26.

— Las Vegas will be the penultimate round, becoming the third race in the United States next year. The Vegas race is scheduled to be held in a Saturday, local time, timeslot.

— The French Grand Prix, first raced in 1906, making it the oldest Grand Prix, has been dropped. It was previously dropped between 2009 and 2017 before returning at Le Castellet.

— The Sochi Grand Prix, which was scratched this year following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, will not be returning in 2023.

— The Australian Grand Prix will remain in its April time slot, scheduled for April 2 as the third race of the year.

— The iconic Monaco Grand Prix has been confirmed to remain part of the F1 calendar through to the end of 2025 in a deal announced Wednesday morning.

“Formula 1 has unprecedented demand to host races and it is important we get the balance right for the entire sport,” said Formula One president Stefano Domenicali.

The global distribution of races continues to shift. There are nine in Europe, eight in Asia, four in North America and one each in South America and Australia.

“The presence of 24 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,” said Mohammed Ben Sulayem FIA president.
