Formula 1: Chinese Grand Prix will not be replaced in 2023

F1 has rejected a request from the Chinese organisers for the race to be reinstated and will not replace its 23 April date with another event. “Formula 1 can confirm the 2023 season will consist of 23 races,” a statement said. The decision means that there has been no Chinese Grand Prix since 2019, and raises questions about the future of the event. The removal of China leaves a four-week gap between the Australian Grand Prix on 2 April and the Azerbaijan race on 30 April. Had China taken place or been replaced, F1 would have held a record 24-race season in 2023. As it is, 23 grands prix is still the most ever held in a year.
