Formula 1 announced on Tuesday the calendar for the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship, featuring 24 races for the first time.

The biggest season in F1 history begins in Bahrain on March 5 and concludes in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on November 26.

Several races are moved from their usual dates, such as Spa taking place just before the mid-season break instead of its traditional post-summer slot, and Baku being moved from June to April, just one week before the Miami Grand Prix.

Miami is one of the five North American cities on the latest calendar, along with Montreal, Mexico City, Austin and Las Vegas, which makes its debut as the penultimate race of the season.

Other notable races includes Monaco, which was recently announced its F1 contract renewal to 2025, and the Chinese Grand Prix, which was last held in 2019 due to the country's strict COVID-19 policy, is pencilled for an April 16 return.

"We are excited to announce the 2023 calendar with 24 races around the world. Formula 1 has unprecedented demand to host races and it is important we get the balance right for the entire sport," said Formula 1 CEO and President Stefano Domenicali.

“We are very pleased with the strong momentum Formula 1 continues to experience and it is great news that we will be able to bring our passionate fans a mix of exciting new locations such as Las Vegas to the Championship with much loved venues across Europe, Asia and the Americas."

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem added: "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.

"The addition of new venues and the retention of traditional events underlines the FIA's sound stewardship of the sport."
