The 2023 Formula One season is nearly upon us with the final race of 22 taking place this week. Max Verstappen won the drivers championship a long time ago now and Red Bull likewise with the constructors’ championship.

All that is left to decide is the minor championship positions as well as the winner of the final race of the season. Will it be Red Bull – like in 20 of the 21 rounds so far – or will somebody else deny them another victory?

When is the next race?

The 22nd and final race of the 2023 F1 season is the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which takes place at the Yas Marina Circuit in the United Arab Emirates.

The race weekend runs from Friday November 24 until Sunday November 26 and you can read more about it including the latest odds, session times and track details here.

How many F1 races will there be in 2023?

There will be 22 races on the calendar this year, which started in Bahrain on March 5 and culminating with the season finale in Abu Dhabi on November 26.

Where and when were the six sprint races this year?

The six sprint venues for 2023 were Azerbaijan, Belgium, the Austin race in the United States and Qatar as well as Austria and Brazil.

The format, was changed for this year, with the sprint becoming almost a standalone event (albeit with championship points) on the Saturday.

Previously there had been qualifying on Friday to set the sprint grid for Saturday, with the sprint race result then setting the grid for Sunday.

In 2023, however, Friday’s qualifying set the grid for Sunday’s grand prix whilst an extra sprint shootout (in effect a shortened three-part, elimination qualifying session) set the grid for the sprint. Both took place on Saturday.

The top eight drivers in the sprint race scored points from eight to the winner and one for the eighth-placed driver. Again, the sprint races were approximately 100km – or roughly a third of a grand prix distance.
