As expected, F1 has confirmed that the Chinese Grand Prix will not take place in 2023 'due to the ongoing difficulties' posed by Covid-19 in the country.

F1 bosses have therefore concluded that the Chinese Grand Prix poses too much of a risk, and so it’ll be absent from the schedule for a fourth season in a row.
