Formula 1 announced the entire schedule for the 2023 racing season, and the circuit will make three different stops in the United States, with the final in Las Vegas for the penultimate race of the schedule. The race in Las Vegas will also be the final of a four-week stretch in North and South America.
The schedule, as released by the FIA, contains a record-breaking 24 Grands Prix, kicking off with the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 5, 2023.
The first race in the United States comes around two months later, with the Formula 1 Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix slated for May 5, 2023. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the 2022 Miami Grand Prix, which was the inaugural event.
