F1 23 Tracks

The 2023 season is currently set to feature 23 races across five continents around the world. There's a brand-new circuit as we see the first Las Vegas Grand Prix in 2023.

24 races were originally planned but China's ongoing covid issues have left that race once again in flux.

There's a brand-new circuit as we see the first Las Vegas Grand Prix in 2023. We also see the Qatar Grand Prix return after it's stand-in role in 2020. The Lusail International Circuit should get its debut in the official F1 game.

Las Vegas Street Circuit

The only truly new race on the calendar in 2023 is the Las Vegas Grand Prix. The Las Vegas Street Circuit will bring F1 back to Sin City for the first time since the 1980s and to the Strip for the first time ever.

Las Vegas will make it three races in the United States in 2023, as it joins the USGP at COTA and the Miami Grand Prix.

This will be one of the fastest circuits on the calendar, with the cars reaching over 200mph (320kph) at four points on the layout.

As a new street circuit, Codemasters will be hard-pressed to recreate it in the game as it doesn't really exist yet. But they had experience with this thanks to Miami last year so the team should be in good shape to get a strong representation of the circuit into F1 23.

Qatar Grand Prix

Much more famous for hosting MotoGP, the Qatar Grand Prix is back in F1 for 2023. Despite a rumoured Doha Street Circuit mooted to make an appearance, we're going back to Lusail.

Lusail is a night race that challenges drivers by sporting some of the fastest corners in F1. Overtakes are frequent here too, with a long start/finish straight benefitting from DRS.

In the real-life race, we saw plenty of tyre blowouts, so we could see the Pirelli's pushed to breaking point in F1 23 as well!

Circuit alterations

There aren't many changes from last year to this year in terms of the retained circuits. One of the exceptions to this though, is the Singapore Grand Prix's Marina Bay Street Circuit.

The run between Turns 16 and what used to be Turn 19 will now be straight. This is thanks to the corners having been taken out to allow for work on the floating football pitch.

The changes haven't been confirmed by the race organisers and it isn't clear if this will be reflected in F1 23. However, it could be a permanent change, as this will improve overtaking at what is a tricky track to pass around.

Another circuit that will see changes is Jeddah's Corniche Street Circuit. The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will see changes for 2023 in the form of wider entries for Turns 14 and 20.

Conversely, the Turns 22-23 chicane has been tightened to slow the cars down, so lap times should be around the same as in 2022.

Keep in mind as well that the Spanish Grand Prix is rumoured to have an altered track for 2023. The final corners could change to remove the chicane and replicate the MotoGP layout.

Additional tracks

It's always possible that Codemasters and EA may choose to add circuits outside of the 2023 calendar.

That's what they did by adding both the Portuguese and Chinese Grands Prix post-release for F1 22.

We are likely to see the Shanghai circuit back in the game, and hopefully Portimao too.

Additionally, the French Grand Prix has been discontinued for 2023. So, Codies may add Circuit Paul Ricard back in for F1 23, as they have an up-to-date model for the track.
