The Chinese Grand Prix was cancelled back in December after being scheduled to take place this weekend, with Formula One fans now having to wait another two weeks before the next event… but why was the race pulled from the 2023 calendar?

Formula One was set to head to China this weekend but was cancelled by the governing body earlier this year. The Chinese Grand Prix was set to take place on Sunday, April 16, but was cancelled back in December. The F1 attempted to replace the Chinese GP with another race, but it was confirmed back in January that there would not be a replacement – which confirmed a 23-race season for 2023. The last Grand Prix in China took place back in 2019 in what was Formula One’s 1,000th race. The next race is set to take place on Sunday, April 30 with the Azerbaijan GP. Qualifying for the race itself is set to take place on the Saturday and is set to get underway at 2pm BST.
