F1 2024 calendar announced: Saturday races and return of China

    The 2024 F1 calendar will see two Saturday races, plus the return of the Chinese GP


    Formula 1 has announced the calendar for the 2024 F1 season which included two Saturday races plus the return of the Chinese GP to the schedule. 

    The calendar features 24 races and begins in Bahrain on March 2 and finishes in Abu Dhabi on December 8.

    Due to the holy month of Ramadan, the Bahrain Grand Prix and the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, the first two races on the 2024 F1 calendar, will be help on Saturday evening of their respective race weekends. 

    Ramadan begins on March 10, 2024 and lasts for 30 days. 

    The Chinese Grand Prix is also back on the F1 calendar for the first time since 2019, and is scheduled after the Japanese Grand Prix, which has been moved to earlier in the calendar. 

    Japan is traditionally completed towards the end of the F1 season, though pairing it with China reduces the logistical effort of the F1 teams, which is also the reason for having Qatar back-to-back with Abu Dhabi.

    The Azerbaijan Grand Prix has also been moved back from its April slot and will now take place in September.

    “I am delighted to announce the 2024 calendar with 24 races that will deliver an exciting season for our fans around the world,” Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said.

    “There is huge interest and continued demand for Formula 1, and I believe this calendar strikes the right balance between traditional races and new and existing venues. I want to thank all of the promoters and partners for their support and effort to achieve this great schedule.

    “Our journey to a more sustainable calendar will continue in the coming years as we further streamline operations as part of our Net Zero 2030 commitment. We have plenty of racing to look forward to in 2023, including the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, and our fans can look forward to more excitement next season.”

    “The planned 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar, that has been approved by the Motor Sport Council Members, demonstrates some important steps towards our shared goals,” Mohammed Ben Sulayem, President of the FIA, said.

    We want to make the global spectacle of Formula 1 more efficient in terms of environmental sustainability and more manageable for the travelling staff who dedicate so much of their time to our sport.

    Stefano Domenicali and his team have done a great job to both bring in new and exciting venues in emerging markets for Formula 1, and stay true to the sport’s long and remarkable heritage.”
