Australia joins the FIA ​​F2 calendar in 2023

Australia joins the FIA ​​F2 calendar in 2023

Felipe Drukovich is already the champion, but the 2022 season is not over yet. But the 2023 season can’t wait, its calendar has now been announced.

There is no French Grand Prix, but teams and drivers travel to the Antipodes in Australia during F1 Grand Prix. FIA F3 will have no fewer than 13 countries next season. A busy season that sees three meetings in a row with Imola, Monaco and Barcelona. But two consecutive race weekends.

“We are delighted to confirm the FIA ​​F2 calendar for 2023 and look forward to another exciting season where drivers will fight for the title and the chance to reach the highest level of motorsport. The championship continues to play an important role in developing the talent of the future, and the next generation of F1 stars. The 14 rounds of the 2023 season will be fan favourites. And we’re delighted to see the races visit Melbourne’s iconic Albert Park circuit for the first time,” said F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.

Maintaining the number of races and controlling costs

Australia’s arrival in 2023 leads to questions about logistics and costs for FIA F3. Bruno Michel wants to reassure in this aspect, explaining that they will be vigilant in the teams’ budgets and that the latter will not explode due to this new trip.

“The 2023 FIA F2 calendar will have 14 rounds, the same number as at present. In 2022, we saw more action than ever before, with a total of 28 races, and we wanted to keep that for next season. The good thing is that there are plenty of tracks that would like to add FIA F2 to their race weekend schedule, but we always bear in mind the costs of more racing. We have therefore decided to limit the number of rounds to 14 again for 2023 and continue to help teams keep their budgets adequate.

As previously announced, we have added Melbourne to the calendar, which is a fantastic venue for our teams and drivers, but also for everyone who enjoys watching F2. It will be very interesting to see our cars do battle on these streets,” said FIA F2 CEO Bruno Michel.
