Formula 1 bosses really like a sprint race, it would seem. The 2023 calendar had no fewer than six of them pencilled in, and we now know exactly when and where they will take place.

So, here goes. The Saturday sprint races will take place in Azerbaijan (Baku Street Circuit), Austria (Red Bull Ring), Belgium (Spa-Francorchamps), Qatar (Losail Circuit), the United States (Circuit of The Americas) and Brazil (Interlagos). Phew.

Of course, that means there are double the sprint race weekends compared to 2021 and 2022, and all but the Red Bull Ring and Interlagos will be hosting their first Saturday race next year. Could be interesting. 

“We have seen a hugely positive reaction to the F1 Sprint events during the first two years of its running, and we can’t wait to bring even more action to fans with six events next year, including our first US F1 Sprint in Austin,” said F1 president and CEO Stefano Domenicali.

“The introduction of the F1 Sprint has created a race weekend that includes three days of competitive racing action and brings more entertainment to fans of the sport as well as additional value for key stakeholders including teams, broadcasters, partners, and host venues.”
