Mark your calendars, F1 fans! The FIA and Formula 1 have officially unveiled the 2025 season schedule, a 24-race marathon celebrating the championship's prestigious 75th anniversary.

The global spectacle will kick off Down Under with the Australian Grand Prix on March 14-16 and culminate in a – hopefully – thrilling finale at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 5-7.

In between, the championship will span five continents and visit 21 countries.

Melbourne recoups its status as season-opener due to Ramadan taking place in March which has led to the Bahrain and Saudi Arabia Grands Prix being pushed back to April.

The popular summer break remains intact, and even gets split into two periods: a two week break between Silverstone and Spa, and then a three-week break between the Hungarian Grand Prix and the Dutch Grand Prix.

Building on the success of 2024's geographical flow, the 2025 calendar offers a logical progression. Fans can expect Japan in April following the opening races in Australia and China.

The European leg dominates the summer months, while the Americas take center stage in the fall. The season concludes with a another back-to-back finish in Qatar and Abu Dhabi.

“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,” commented Formula One CEO Stefano Domenicali.

“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.”

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem added: “The 2025 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar, approved by the World Motor Sport Council, is a further illustration of our collective mission of meeting sustainability objectives through the regionalisation of events.

“While our focus is on the overall stability of Formula 1, we also have a shared duty to the environment and to the health and well-being of travelling staff.

“Formula One Management, under the direction of Stefano Domenicali, have produced a calendar which strikes a good blend of traditional circuits and modern venues.

“We thank the host ASNs, the local organisers and the many thousands of FIA volunteers for their tireless efforts in making Formula 1 a truly global, mass audience spectacle as we prepare to celebrate the sport’s 75th year.”
