2023 marked the third Formula 1 year that featured three races in a single nation. The first season also included the Las Vegas GP. The 1982 season featured three races in the USA, Long Beach, Detroit, Caesar’s Palace. Three different drivers won all three races that season.
2020 was the second time that we had 3 races in one country. The calendar was rearranged and new tracks were added to the mix thanks to Covid. Italy was a big beneficiary, as we got Imola and Mugello along with Monza.
