Austin and Miami to resume F1 sprint races in 2025, Belgium replaces Austria

Miami and Austin, Texas, will continue to host Formula One sprint races next year, with Belgium replacing Austria.

The 24-event F1 calendar will feature six sprint events for the third year in a row.

Joining the Circuit of the Americas in Austin and the Miami street circuit is Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps, the only 2025 sprint venue not to host a sprint this year, although it did host one in 2023.

This will be the third time a sprint race will be held in Austin and the second time in Miami.

The other three sprints in 2025 will be held in Brazil, China and Qatar for the fifth consecutive year.

Formula One has changed its weekend schedule this year, moving the sprint race to the Saturday before grand prix qualifying.
