Index: Races by country | Races by season

The 1983 Formula One season included the 34th FIA Formula One World Championship which commenced on March 13, and ended on October 15 after fifteen races. Nelson Piquet won the World Drivers' Championship, his second Formula One title and the first one ever won by a driver using a turbocharged engine. 1983 was notable as the last season in which a non-Championship Formula One race was held: the Race of Champions at Brands Hatch, won by Keke Rosberg in a Williams.
