The 2023 Formula 1 season is coming to an end, with many starting to look forward to next year to fix their problems in Formula 1. This year’s season witnessed 22 races filled with excitement and great control from Max Verstappen and his Red Bull car.

The 2024 Formula 1 season will start on February 29 and run until December 8 with a record season of 24 races. Pre-season testing is scheduled to take place in Bahrain at the end of February, just one week before the opening race.

The first two races of the year will be held in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia on Saturday nights, with the schedule changed due to the holy month of Ramadan, which begins on Sunday, March 10.

The hallowed event required the Saudi Grand Prix to be moved forward by one day and with back-to-back weekends, the decision was also made to race on Saturday in Bahrain to ensure there was enough time to move all the goods to the next race.

The Chinese Grand Prix is ​​also set to return to the Formula 1 calendar for the first time since 2019. The race was previously canceled in 2023 for the fourth year in a row following strict COVID-19 measures in the country.

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said: “I am delighted to announce the 2024 calendar which includes 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 would like to thank all our promoters and partners for their support and efforts to achieve this fantastic schedule. Our journey towards a more sustainable calendar will continue in the coming years as we work to streamline operations as part of our commitment to Net Zero 2030.

The Japanese Grand Prix has been moved from its usual September slot to April, giving this year’s season an Asian stop towards the start of the year. The race, which is traditionally held after the summer break, will move to the fourth round in 2024, ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix.

With the Japanese Grand Prix moved to the beginning of the year, the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku will be moved to the second half of the year, where it will be held a week before the Singapore Grand Prix. The Qatar Grand Prix will also be moved to the penultimate race of the season which will help transport cars and equipment to Abu Dhabi for the season finale next year and should also help solve the heat issue faced by drivers this year.
