Those who are into sports betting will be looking forward to see more races be confirmed in the 2023 calendar. Formula 1 racing may not top the list of the most bet-on sports in a sportsbook, but there is a lot of money to be made here. In our latest Formula 1 racing news, we’ll talk about the latest Sprint announcement. The six F1 Sprint weekends scheduled for the 2023 season, which will be double the number of events held in 2021 and 2022, have been announced by Formula 1.
The standard one-hour qualifying session for F1 Sprint is moved to Friday instead, establishing the grid for a 100-kilometer sprint on Saturday that determines the starting lineup for Sunday’s main event. Your sportsbook pay per head will automatically show the lines for these events, so there’s less work for you to do as a bookie.

The Sprints will be held in the following countries and cities the next year: Azerbaijan (Baku City Circuit), Austria (Red Bull Ring), Belgium (Spa-Francorchamps), Qatar (Lusail Circuit), the United States (Circuit of The Americas), and Sao Paulo (Interlagos). After hosting in 2021 and 2022, Interlagos is still a Sprint venue, and the Red Bull Ring also ran the new format last year. The other locations that have held Sprints in the past are Silverstone, Monza, and Imola.
You can easily earn from the 2023 F1 calendar when you own a self-managed sportsbook. The 2023 pick was made after analysis into the best venues for the format, including overtaking possibilities, close racing, and high-speed sectors. The governing body of Formula One, the FIA, declared that the teams’ cost cap limit for each Sprint race will double from the following year on, from $150,000 to $300,000. However, there will no longer be any additional allowance for accident damage received in the Sprint events.
