Formula One releases 2024 calendar

July 6, 2023

Formula One has released the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship calendar, following approval by the World Motor Sport Council. 

The 2024 F1 season will have a total of 24 races. It is set to kick off in Bahrain on March 2 and conclude in Abu Dhabi on December 8. The 2024 season will also see F1 return to China for the first time since 2019; racing was paused in the country following the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The 2024 F1 calendar also sees the Japanese Grand Prix, which is always held after the summer break, moved to April, while the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, which is generally one of the first ones on the calendar, is moved to September, after the player break. Two races — in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia — will take place on Saturdays due to Ramadan. 

The three-week summer break remains in August, while there is also a three-week gap between the Singapore and Austin races. 

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, commented:

I am delighted to announce the 2024 calendar with 24 races that will deliver an exciting season for our fans around the world. 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.

Mohammed Ben Sulayem, President of the FIA, said:

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. 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.

Each race can only happen thanks to the collaboration between the FIA, FOM, the promoters, and the host ASNs who bring together the thousands of volunteer marshals and support personnel so that we can go racing, and as we forge ahead into the future we must ensure that our priorities grow and develop with the needs of society and what is best for our sport, our fans and our environment.
