Melbourne made season-opener again in 24-race F1 calendar for 2025 · RaceFans


The Formula 1 season will begin in Australia for the first time in five years in 2025.

Formula One Management and the FIA have confirmed the schedule for next season much earlier than usual.

Following four consecutive years with the season beginning in Bahrain, the Albert Park circuit will host the opening round for the first time since 2019. It was due to do so in 2020 but the race was cancelled after teams arrived in Melbourne due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 2025 championship will again feature 24 rounds, the same as this year, running from mid-March to early December, finishing once more with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the Yas Marina circuit.

Following the reorganisation of some races for this year’s calendar to provide a more logical geographical progression to reduce travel time and costs, FOM is attempting to take a further step in this area next year. The season will begin with a double-header in Australia and China, followed by a triple-header including the Japanese, Bahrain and Saudi Arabian grands prix.

The Miami Grand Prix retains its early May slot, again followed by the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix in Imola. Monaco will be followed by the Spanish Grand Prix a week later, before the series heads to Canada and returns to Europe for the Austrian, British, Belgian and Hungarian rounds.

The summer break will lie between Hungary and the Dutch Grand Prix in August, with the Italian and Azerbaijan Grands Prix completing the European phase of the season. Singapore will be followed by the United States Grand Prix with Mexico a week later before the Brazilian Grand Prix runs on its own in early November.

The season will again end with a triple-header of the Las Vegas, Qatar and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix, the same as this season.

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem says that the revised 2025 calendar 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,” Ben Sulayem continued.

“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.”
