Why is the 2024 F1 Bahrain GP on Saturday?

The 2024 F1 Bahrain GP is scheduled on a Saturday to accommodate the holy month of Ramadan, which takes place from March 10 to April 9, 2024. During Ramadan, Muslims around the world engage in fasting, prayer, and reflection, which influences the scheduling of major sporting events to ensure they do not occur during this period. 

Holding the Bahrain GP on a Saturday, before Ramadan begins, aligns with this consideration, ensuring the event respects the cultural and religious practices of the period. This adjustment reflects Formula 1‘s flexibility and respect for global cultural and religious events.
