F1 calendar 2024: Schedule and dates of every Formula One race

Formula One has announced the schedule for the upcoming 2024 FIA World Championship. 

Featuring 24 races that will take place between March and December next year, the schedule will see the action kick off in Bahrain and finish in Abu Dhabi. 

With a focus on greater calendar regionalisation to help the sport to cut down on CO2 emissions and meet its own sustainability strategy goals, a number of races have been moved to new slots — most notably the Japanese, Azerbaijan and Qatar Grand Prix.  

The 2024 calendar will also see the opening two races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia take place on a Saturday as opposed to the traditional Sunday. 

Here’s what we know so far about the 2024 Formula One schedule.

Why are the 2024 Bahrain and Saudi Arabia Grand Prix on Saturdays?

Both of the opening two races on the 2024 F1 calendar in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia will be run on a Saturday. That’s to accommodate the Muslim Holy period of Ramadan, which begins on Sunday March 10 – one day after the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

The Japanese Grand Prix switches from September to April, the Azerbaijan Grand Prix moves the other way from April to September and the Qatar Grand Prix shifts from October to December.

Speaking to the official F1 website on the 2024 F1 calendar, Stefano Domenicali, president and CEO of the sport 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.”

“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.”
