Published on 27 November 2023 at 16:00

In a much-anticipated announcement that sets the stage for another year of high-octane drama, the FIA and Formula 1 have officially unveiled the new calendar for the upcoming 2024 season.


Promising a blend of classic thrillers, fan favourites, and innovative new circuits, the latest schedule is a testament to the sport's enduring appeal and commitment to delivering top-tier racing experiences to a global audience.

A record schedule of 24 races will be set in Formula 1 in 2024, making this track's schedule the longest in its history. Moreover, Formula 1 will return after 5 years off the calendar to host the Chinese Grand Prix as the fifth round on the calendar.



The Return of the Chinese Grand Prix

The return of the Chinese Grand Prix to the Formula 1 calendar marks a significant moment for the sport's global footprint. Absent since 2019 due to pandemic-related disruptions, its comeback at the Shanghai International Circuit is eagerly anticipated by fans and drivers alike.

Known for its unique blend of high-speed straights and challenging corners, the track promises thrilling battles and strategic racing.

The event not only reinforces China's growing influence in the world of motorsport but also symbolizes the gradual return to normalcy in international sporting events, offering a sense of excitement and optimism for the future of Formula 1.

Saturday’s Grand Prix in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia

The upcoming Formula 1 season is set to commence with an exciting Middle Eastern leg, featuring back-to-back races that highlight the region's growing prominence in the motorsport world.

The season opener is scheduled for March 2 in Bahrain, a venue known for its captivating night races and challenging desert track.

This will be closely followed by the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on March 9, a race that has quickly become a fan favourite for its high-speed street circuit in Jeddah.

Uniquely, both races in 2024 are slated for Saturdays, a scheduling adjustment made in respect of the holy month of Ramadan, reflecting Formula 1's commitment to cultural sensitivity and global inclusivity.

Unfortunately, Formula 1 has yet to announce which tracks will host the Sprint weekends and how many will be included in 2024.


Pre-Season Testing

In preparation for the upcoming season, Formula 1 teams will converge for pre-season testing in Bahrain, setting the stage for a week of intensive development and strategy refinement.

Scheduled from February 21-23, this vital testing phase will occur at the Bahrain International Circuit, the same venue as the season's opening grand prix.

This continuity allows teams to optimize their performance in real race conditions, making for a seamless transition into the competitive season.
