Chinese GP CANCELLED again for fourth straight year as F1 confirm race called off due to ‘Covid difficulties’

FORMULA ONE have cancelled the Chinese Grand Prix for the fourth year in a row due to “Covid difficulties”. The circuit was set to return to Shanghai for the fourth race of the 2023 season on April 16. A short statement from F1 said: “Formula One can confirm, following dialogue with the promoter and relevant authorities, that the 2023 Chinese Grand Prix will not take place due to the ongoing difficulties presented by the Covid-19 situation. One possible solution is a return to Portimao, which would make up a record 24-race calendar. F1 had pieced together the whopping 24-race season for 2023, with a new Las Vegas Grand Prix on the penultimate weekend.
