Official: Belgian GP secures place on 2023 F1 calendar

It has been announced that F1 will visit Belgium and the Spa-Francorchamps circuit again in 2023, as revealed by RacingNews365.com earlier this week.

F1 will race in Belgium next season thanks to a fresh agreement being reached with promoters at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.

As revealed by RacingNews365.com earlier this week, the Belgian GP has been saved – at least for another year – after talks over a 2023 round in South Africa broke down.

Although F1 is determined to stage a race in Africa, a new promoter is likely to be sought, with 2024 now the revised target date.

With a limit of 24 races per season under the current Concorde Agreement, this opened the door for the under-pressure Spa to keep its spot in 2023.

Beyond this, it is unclear whether Spa will maintain its presence on the F1 calendar, with a year-on, year-off rotational deal one possibility.

A brief statement from F1, issued an hour ahead of this year's running of the Belgian GP getting underway, confirmed the calendar news.

"Formula 1 can confirm that the Belgian Grand Prix will be on the 2023 calendar following an agreement to extend our partnership together," read the statement.

"Further details on the 2023 calendar will be announced in due course."
