F1 2023 Calendar: When will the next Grand Prix take place?

The 2023 Formula 1 season is here and the new campaign has seen Red Bull pick up where it left off in 2022.

This year sees 23 races held in a record calendar, as Max Verstappen looks confident of making it three in a row after back-to-back World Championship triumphs.

Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes team have seen further improvements so far this year after a disappointing 2022 season. Meanwhile, Ferrari is struggling to match its strong start to 2022.

There are also some new faces on the grid – such as Oscar Piastri and Logan Sargeant – and all 20 drivers will be eager to get back on track after a three-month break with official pre-season testing in Bahrain before the first race of the season a week later.

The biggest upset of this year so far happened mid-season when AlphaTauri driver Nyck de Vries was dropped almost immediately after Silverstone as he failed to impress Red Bull’s top brass. He was replaced by favorite Daniel Ricciardo.

Here’s everything you need to know.

What was said?

Max Verstappen has challenged Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes to raise their game and give him the championship battle Formula 1 needs.

Verstappen ran away with last season’s title, winning 15 of 22 races, to secure his second championship with four rounds remaining. In contrast, Hamilton, driving his underperforming Mercedes, had the worst year of his career as he failed to win a race and finished 214 points behind.

But addressing the prospect of renewing his rivalry with Hamilton at the Red Bull season launch in New York, Verstappen, 25, said: “In the interest of the sport you always want the teams to be very close.

“I think it was close last year, but as a team we executed a lot of things better than others and that’s why the point gap was so big. I never felt , apart from two or three races, which we absolutely dominated. But for the general interest of Formula 1, everyone wants a title battle with several teams involved.”
