The Qatar circuit losail will be significantly remodeled and therefore will not open the opening of the 2023 World Cup MotoGP.
It is widely expected that the racetrack will receive Formula 1 again from 2023, despite the fact that it is not ruled out to hold its Grand Prix in another location, to which is added the fact that it will continue on the World Motorcycling calendar until 2031.
Therefore, there will be a renovation of its facilities, including the remodeling of its paddock and the expansion of recreation areas, in order to improve the experience for fans and participants. The project will start this year.
In this way, Qatar will not host the first date of the 2023 MotoGP Championship, a distinction it has had since 2007. Its competition will be in the final part of the tournament, maintaining its night mode. Enea Bastianini (Gresini) was the winner in the visit last March.
As for F1, last year’s was the first race to be held in that nation; In principle, due to the preparations for the World Cup there will be no Grand Prix this year, although it was rumored that it could be a substitute for the canceled date in Russia.
This seems unlikely due to the logistical challenges of organizing a race before making the scheduled trips to Singapore (October 2) and Japan (October 9). At the moment, it is believed that a second race will be added at Marina Bay in order to maintain 23 Grands Prix this year.
