Rev Your Engines: A Guide to the Most Exciting Formula 1 Races of 2023 [and How to Turn Them into Unforgettable Holidays]
The last few years we have seen a huge growth in the popularity and demand for Formula 1. Following seven years of Mercedes dominance, the last few seasons have seen Red Bull and Ferrari bridge that gap, leading to high-octane and gripping drama throughout every race. The popular Netflix series “Formula 1: Drive to Survive” has played a significant role in bringing Formula One to a wider audience. By providing an intimate look into the personalities and behind-the-scenes drama of the sport, the series has captured the attention of both casual viewers and die-hard fans alike, increasing interest and engagement in Formula One. As we edge closer to the 2023 season, season 5 will be premiered on February 24th – and is quickly becoming the opening date of the schedule.
As the lights flash red awaiting the beginning of the 2023 Formula 1 season, it is expected to be on the most exciting in history; Will Verstappen run away with the title? Will Leclerc and Ferrari regain some stability and consistency? Will there be a surprise on the horizon?
Whilst there are many fantastic tracks and destinations on the schedule this year, few more so than Miami. Miami is renowned for its beautiful beaches, warm weather and is often referred to as the “Gateway to the Americas”. The Miami circuit made its debut in 2022, and is undergoing some development to make the circuit even more exciting. Designed to race around Hard Rock stadium, it is situated just a twenty minute drive from the port of Miami – a popular departure point for a range of cruises to the Caribbean and the Bahamas, ranging from short weekend getaways to longer, more immersive voyages.
Arguably one of the most prestige experiences in world sport, is the Monaco Grand Prix. Held annually in the streets of Monte Carlo, with its narrow and winding circuit Monaco is one of the most demanding and challenging tracks. Monaco is famous for its stunning Mediterranean coastline, luxurious yachts and its fashionable shopping and dining. Situated just thirty minutes from Nice, Monaco is easily accessible to Nice and Marseille in France, and Genoa in Italy – making for a perfect interrailing or cruising destination.
Later in the season, the Formula 1 heads to Singapore where they race through the heart of the city, mixing high-speed straights with hairpin turns. This track is famous for being the first night race in the history of the sport, which presents unique opportunity to accompany the racing with live entertainment and music. Singapore truly is truly a spectator’s dream, on and off the track, known for its vibrant and cultural hub, delicious food and its cleanliness, Singapore is the perfect weekend getaway – the perfect accompaniment of sport and culture. Many of customers love to extend their trip to Club Med Maldives, Club Med Bintan Island, Club Med Phuket or even Club Med Mauritius.
Just the weekend after Singapore, the grid heads north-east to the Suzuka Circuit in Japan. Whilst the Japanese Grand Prix can prove difficult to access, there is a bullet train from Tokyo which makes things a tad easier. Why not explore the vibrant street culture, cutting edge technology and a unique blend of traditional and modern culture, before heading to one of the most exciting races on the calendar. If you’re looking for an extended trip, why not get in touch about merging the Singapore and Japanese races into the same trip for a once in a lifetime experience?
