The FIA and Formula One have announced the 2025 F1 Calendar. The 75th season of the sport will host 24 races across the globe. However, the series still does not include the African continent on its worldwide tour.

Speaking about the calendar, 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.”

Slightly Reworked

The 2025 F1 calendar, once again, starts with the Australian Grand Prix in March. It will conclude in Abu Dhabi on December 7. In the process, five of the world’s seven continents will enjoy live races. 

The Bahrain and Saudi Arabian F1 races will be held in April. As a result, each will host racing on a traditional Sunday, as opposed to the Saturday events we saw this year. The holy month of Ramadan takes place in March next year. There will, once again, be three races in the US and two in Italy. The Middle East will play host to four rounds of the calendar. Africa, it seems, does not register as a priority for Formula One.   

Better Flow

F1 teams used to zig-zag around the globe competing in far flung corners for consecutive race weekends. A better geographical flow of races will ease the travel and ecology burden somewhat. There is now an ‘eastern leg” of races with Japan in April following Australia and China. This is followed predominantly by the European races over the northern hemisphere summer. The circus then heads to the Americas before finishing in Qatar and Abu Dhabi.
