Chinese Grand Prix will also not take place in 2023, Formula 1 is looking for a replacement

The Chinese Grand Prix will also be canceled in 2023 due to the corona measures in the country. Formula 1 officially announced this on Friday. The royal class is looking for a replacement circuit for next season’s calendar.
The Chinese government announced this week after protests that it would relax the still strict corona policy. Nevertheless, Formula 1 has decided to remove the race from the calendar in consultation with the authorities and promoter.

That calendar has a record number of 24 Grands Prix, and the organization wants to keep it that way. That’s why she’s looking for a replacement circuit. For example, there is a chance that the sport will return to Portimão in Portugal. That circuit was already a substitute twice before during the corona pandemic.

The Chinese Grand Prix has been missing from the calendar for three years. In 2019, the last edition was won by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton. Two-time world champion Max Verstappen was fourth in that race.

The Formula 1 season starts on March 5, 2023 in Bahrain. China would be the fourth Grand Prix of the season on April 16.
