F1 unveils 24-race calendar for 2025 — Here’s everything you need to know

Written by Sophie Harvey, Edited by Vyas Ponnuri

Together with the FIA, Formula 1 has officially announced its 2025 calendar — marking what will be the 75th anniversary of the championship, a 24-race calendar lies in store for both fans and teams alike.

Next year’s calendar sees Australia’s Albert Park return to its season-opener spot, kicking off the championship at the slightly later date of March 14th. Whilst fans will have to hold-tight for the racing action to resume, this will give team’s a few additional weeks to refine and prepare their 2025 challengers.

After our trip down under, we’ll be back to Japan in time for Sakura season — similar to this year, Suzuka’s earlier timing will allow the racing to commence amongst the pink and white cherry blossoms once again. All before returning to China, which will only be Formula 1’s second visit since 2019.

It's worth noting that Bahrain will take a later slot in this year’s schedule. Hand-in-hand with Saudi Arabia, Ramadan will take place in March, pushing our brief Middle-Eastern leg to April.

In the effort to reduce its impact to the environment, Formula 1 continues to make travel-conscious changes to each calendar. However, the FIA’s adjustments are few and far between here onwards.

Canada will jump Spain in the schedule, with the latter finishing a busy triple-header through Italy and Monaco. A few races later, Belgium and Hungary have swapped places — the Hungaroring will return to signaling the start of summer break, sign-posting the imminent arrival of each team’s mandatory two-week shutdown.

Racing will be back to business in the Netherlands, with the on-track action beginning on the 29th of August.

Zandvoort onwards, our running order remains largely the same — trailing through the Americas before concluding the season in Qatar and Abu Dhabi. Yas Marina will provide a familiar yet impressive backdrop for the season finale on December 7th — will there be a last-race championship grab? We will just have to wait and see.

In response to the calendar's release, Formula 1 CEO and President Stefano Domenicali expressed his pride in next year’s lineup: 

“2025 will be a special year as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the FIA Formula One World Championship, and it’s that legacy and experience that allows us to deliver such a strong calendar. Once again, we’ll visit 24 incredible venues around the world, delivering top class racing, hospitality, and entertainment, which will be enjoyed by millions of fans worldwide.”

“I would also like to pay tribute to our F1 teams and drivers, the heroes of our sport, and our fans around the world for continuing to follow Formula 1 with such incredible enthusiasm.”

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem went on to add his own remark, addressing the issues surrounding the championship’s strive for sustainability and welfare interests: 

“The 2025 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar, approved by the World Motor Sport Council, is a further illustration of our collective mission of meeting sustainability objectives through the regionalisation of events.”

“While our focus is on the overall stability of Formula 1, we also have a shared duty to the environment and to the health and well-being of travelling staff.”

As to which races will hold the newly-added sprint format, a further announcement is expected — likewise with pre-season testing, which so far, its location remains undetermined.
