The 2024 F1 calendar has been unveiled following a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council, with a record 24 races set to take place.

F1's hierarchy has aimed to break the record for the number of races in a season in recent years, only to be scuppered by cancellations due to the Covid pandemic.

The sport will finally return to China, which has not been held since 2019 due to the impacts of the pandemic, whilst the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix also returns after being cancelled this year due to floods.

Bahrain kicks off the new campaign on Saturday, March 2, with the second race of the year in Saudi Arabia also taking place on a Saturday, owing to the start of the holy month of Ramadan. This ensures that three races will be held on a day other than Sunday, along with the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

Other notable changes targeted at sustainability goals, with a greater focus on regionalisation, will see the campaign end on December 8, with a large gap in October when the Japanese Grand Prix is usually scheduled.

That race has been brought forward to April 7, while the Azerbaijan Grand Prix has been bumped to September, forming a double-header with Singapore.

Spain, Austria and Britain form the first of three triple-headers in late June and early July, with Austin, Mexico and Brazil in October and November. Las Vegas, Qatar and Abu Dhabi are also back-to-back to close the season out.

Continued demand

“I am delighted to announce the 2024 calendar with 24 races that will deliver an exciting season for our fans around the world," said F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.

"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.”

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem added: “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 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.”
