Formula 1's 2023 Australian Grand Prix organisers have revealed the provisional date for the event.

The race will be taking place around Melbourne's Albert Park on the weekend of 30 March to 2 April.

The Australian race will be the third of the 2023 F1 season behind Bahrain, which is expected to be followed by the Saudi Arabia GP.

The full 2023 F1 calendar is yet to be confirmed, but Qatar is said to be returning, and Las Vegas will also be part of the season.

China will feature depending on Covid-19 restrictions, plus there is talk of an F1 return to Kyalami in South Africa, either in 2023 or 2024.
