2025 F1 calendar

The 2025 Formula 1 calendar will kick off with the Australian Grand Prix on 16th March and finish in Abu Dhabi on 7th December, bookending a 24-race season – the joint longest in history.

Australia returns to what had become its traditional slot as the opening Grand Prix of the year, having started the F1 season every year except one from 1997 to 2019. The move, which also sees the Chinese and Japanese Grands Prix move forward, has been made to accommodate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which next year takes place in March. Without the move both the Bahrain and Saudi Arabian Grands Prix would take place during Ramadan.

Following the first Asian leg of the championship in March and April, F1 will return to Europe via a stop in Miami for its usual summer series of races. This period, which takes in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola, and the Spanish, Austrian, British, Belgian, Hungarian, Dutch and Italian Grands Prix, will be punctuated by a return to North America for the Canadian Grand Prix in June.

Britain’s round has held its familiar early-July slot, sitting on 4th-6th July, with the Belgian round at Spa-Francorchamps again taking place in the last weekend of July (25th-27th) before the Hungarian Grand Prix ends the first half of the season on 1st-3rd August.

F1’s enforced summer break covers most of August before the action returns at Max Verstappen’s home round at Zandvoort on 29-31st August. Following the European leg, which finishes at Monza on 5th-7th September, the F1 circus will head back through Asia via Azerbaijan (12th-21st September) and Singapore (3rd-5th October), before four races in the Americas.

That leg, which takes place within just over a month, includes the US Grand Prix at COTA (17th-19th October), Mexican (24th-26th October) Brazillian (7th-9th November) and Las Vegas (20th-22nd November) rounds, the latter of which will be the series’ only Saturday race of the year.

The 2024 season finishes with two rounds back in the Middle East, in Qatar (28th-30th November) and Abu Dhabi.

While F1 says it has worked on the calendar to make more geographical sense, there are still several triple headers during the mammoth season. Imola, Monaco and Barcelona, USA Mexico and Brazil, and the final three races are all back-to-back weekends.

Speaking about the calendar announcement, Formula 1 CEO and President Stefano Domenicali said: “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.

“We’re grateful to the FIA, our promoters, host city partners, and all the related ASNs for their commitment and support in delivering this schedule and securing what promises to be another fantastic year for Formula 1.

“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.”
