Formula 1 have released their proposed schedule for 2024 with a record 24-race calendar. The itinerary follows a similar layout to the original 2023 one, and brings a return of the Chinese Grand Prix but features no new events.
Logistically, events in certain areas have been grouped together to minimise travel disruption on teams. The season also brings several Saturday races to combat global events such as Ramadan in the Middle East.
The calendar also sees several events shuffled from their traditional time frames, most notably the Japanese Grand Prix which has moved from its usual slot near the end of the season to early April.
Pre-season testing will take place in Bahrain once again, with Round 1 following at the same venue a week later. Round 2 sees a return to Saudi Arabia, with the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix set to take place on a Saturday. The earlier race means the season-opener in Bahrain will also be held on a Saturday to ensure there is a one week gap between rounds.
The Australian Grand Prix keeps a traditional March time slot and will be run on March 24, with the Japanese Grand Prix two weeks later, followed by the Chinese Grand Prix.
The first of three American rounds is in Miami in early May and is followed by the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola.
The 2024 Monaco Grand Prix will run over the weekend of May 24-26, again over the same weekend as the IndyCar Indianapolis 500.
Spain’s round on June 23 welcomes the first triple-header of the year which sees in the mid-season break.
Formula 1 leaves Europe after the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on September 15 for the season to conclude with rounds in Singapore, Texas, Mexico, Brazil, Las Vegas, Qatar and Abu Dhabi, respectively. The final three rounds will also run as a triple-header.
