Formula 2 and Formula 3 have announced their calendars for the 2023 season with both championships featuring events across three continents for the first time – including their highly anticipated debuts in Australia.

Continuing the two-race format alongside the Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend, the F2 crown will be fought over 14 rounds, while F3 will feature a record-breaking 10 rounds.

Both campaigns will kick off in Sakhir, Bahrain on March 3-5, before F2 flies solo a fortnight later in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on March 17-19. The two will reunite for their debut at Melbourne’s Albert Park at the end of the month, from March 31 – April 2.

F3 will then – for the first time – join F2 on the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix support bill on May 25-28, and close the three-round run in Barcelona, Spain on June 2-4.
