Max Verstappen’s win in the British Grand Prix last week – his fifth grand prix win at Silverstone – has further extended his drivers’ championship lead over team-mate Sergio Pérez.

Verstappen now leads the standings by 99 points after 10 rounds, heading into the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 23.

Red Bull are on their way to a second consecutive constructors’ championship, leading Mercedes by 411 points to 203.

When is the next race?

The 10th round of the 2023 Formula One season is the Hungarian Grand Prix, which takes place in Budapest. It runs from Friday July 21 until Sunday July 23.

How many F1 races will there be in 2023?

With the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix’s postponement and likely cancellation, there will be 22 races on the calendar this year, which started in Bahrain on March 5 and culminating with the season finale in Abu Dhabi on November 26.

What new races are there in 2023?

The brand new Las Vegas Grand Prix will be the penultimate race of the season, a week before Abu Dhabi.

Where and when will the six sprint races be this year?

Formula One has announced the six sprint venues for 2023 with Azerbaijan, Belgium, the Austin race in the United States and Qatar all joining Austria and Brazil.

The format, however, has been changed for this year, with the sprint becoming almost a standalone event (albeit with championship points) on the Saturday.

Previously there had been qualifying on Friday to set the sprint grid for Saturday, with the sprint race result then setting the grid for Sunday.

In 2023, however, Friday’s qualifying sets the grid for Sunday’s grand prix whilst an extra sprint shootout (in effect a shortened three-part, elimination qualifying session) sets the grid for the sprint. Both take place on Saturday.

The top eight drivers in the sprint race score points from eight to the winner and one for the eighth-placed driver. Again, the sprint races will be approximately 100km – or roughly a third of a grand prix distance.
