- Six sprint races on F1 calendar for first time in 2023
- New venues chosen on suitability for short-format racing
Formula One has confirmed the six venues that will host sprint races in the 2023 season. The sport will retain the current format for the sprint weekends in which the shortened 100km race will decide the grid for the grand prix on a Sunday.
The sprint race was introduced in 2021 and since then has been held at three meetings each year. F1 has been eager to expand the concept and next year sprint meetings will be held in Azerbaijan, Austria, Belgium, Qatar, the United States and Brazil. Of the six only Brazil and Austria have previously held sprint events.
