Reports have emerged suggesting that the F1 calendar will change for the 2023 season.

Monaco's position on the calendar is at risk, owing to F1's dissatisfaction with the privileges that the Monte Carlo circuit currently enjoys. 

German outlet AMuS has revealed that one of the privileges boasted by the Monaco GP is that the weekend broadcast is controlled by local producers. Stefano Domenicali has made clear this must change so that Monaco is broadcast in the same way as previous rounds.

There are also concerns regarding sponsorship, as Monte Carlo features prominent TAG Heuer sponsorship, which directly opposes Rolex, one of F1's main partners.

Qatar's return to the calendar is expected for 2023, with organisers having made clear the Losail circuit will return to F1 after the World Cup has been hosted.

F1 hopes that China's Shanghai Circuit can feature next season, with Zhou Guanyu's presence in the sport seen as an opportunity for F1 to tap into the Chinese market.

South Africa's Kyalami is tipped to join the 2023 calendar, and given Stefano Domenicali's public declarations that a return to the African continent is a priority, it seems a matter of not if but when the F1 circuit races at Kyalami again. 

Spa's position seems secure, at least for the short-term, whilst the likes of Portimao and France are on the periphery.
