Formula 1 races typically range from 80 to 100 minutes and cannot exceed two hours due to safety reasons. The race starts when the five red lights are turned off by the race director and the event needs to be completed within a three-hour window. The three-hour window is in place in case of a red flag or delay, but the two-hour window is official racing under green or yellow flag conditions.

How many F1 races are there in 2023?

There are 23 races on the 2023 F1 schedule. The Chinese Grand Prix was supposed to be included on the schedule for a total of 24 races; however, it has been canceled due to the COVID-19 policies still standing in the country.
