Are 24 races really a record?

Formula 1 presented a record calendar (once again) on Tuesday. We already know that from the recent past: there were more and more races. So in 2023 there should be 24.

But: Strictly speaking, this is not a record, because there have been significantly more Formula 1 races in one year. Most 1954: proud 33!

There is only one catch: only nine of these 33 races from the 1954 season counted towards the automobile world championship, the remaining races had no world championship status. In other words: there were 33 Formula 1 races this year, but not all of them were relevant to the overall standings.

That will be different in 2023. Then all 24 races count towards the championship. And that is indeed a record for Formula 1.

And for those who want to know exactly: 24 races were also in the annual schedule of the Formula 1 teams in 1963 (without all of them having taken part in all races), with ten World Championship races and a further 14 Formula 1 races without a World Championship Status.
