Formula 1 is well-known for its globe-trotting nature with drivers and teams jetting off to all corners of the globe in pursuit of World Championship glory.

In 2023, what starts in Bahrain ends a little over 500 miles away in Abu Dhabi, but in the eight intervening months, 21 more races will be held in 17 other countries criss-crossing the globe.

But why is the F1 calendar so illogically designed?

Why are races not grouped together according to region, such as Asia, then Europe, then the Americas and finally Middle East?

RacingNews365 is on hand to explain why in the video below!
