GP Contracts | All you need to know

The 2024 Formula 1 calendar will see the sport travel to 24 locations around the world.

Bahrain will host the season opener on the first weekend of March, with the campaign eventually ending in Abu Dhabi in December.

Whilst a number of races have their futures confirmed for the long term, some events face a more uncertain wait to find out whether the existing deals will be extended.

The most recent race to be given security was the São Paulo Grand Prix, which saw its contract period extended to 2030.

Take a look at the table below to find the final years of each event's existing contract.

Expiring GP contracts

The Japanese and British Grands Prix face uncertainty for the coming year. These races are currently under contract until the end of 2024, so they will still be on the calendar next year. On the other hand, the Chinese, Emilia Romagna, Monaco, Belgian, Dutch, Italian and Mexico City Grands Prix have contracts in place until the end of 2025, ensuring their presence on the calendar for the upcoming two seasons.

More GP's outside of Europe

The Formula 1 calendar is experiencing a notable shift with an increasing number of Grands Prix taking place outside of Europe. Recent additions to the calendar include the Miami and Las Vegas Grands Prix, reflecting the sport's growing interest. Furthermore, Qatar has also joined the line-up of races, signifying Formula 1's expansion into new territories.

Qatar garnered global attention when Max Verstappen secured his third World Championship title in the sport with the eyes of the world descending on the Middle Eastern country.

With these developments, the sustainability of the 'historic' F1 races comes under scrutiny. As Formula 1 broadens its horizons and explores fresh destinations, the future of these iconic Italian races hangs in the balance.

GP contracts | Will there be new circuits?

The Vietnamese Grand Prix

In East and Southeast Asia, there is a burgeoning interest in hosting new Formula 1 races. While the region is currently represented by Japan and Singapore, several other potential candidates are waiting in the wings.

The organisers of the ill-fated Vietnamese Grand Prix are said to have engaged in discussions with Stefano Domenicali earlier this year as he was en route to the Australian Grand Prix.

The Malaysian Grand Prix

The Minister of Sport in Malaysia, which last hosted a race in 2017, recently declared that the return of the Sepang circuit to the calendar is just a matter of time. However, this is dependent on an improvement in financial conditions. In 2017, Malaysia withdrew from the sport due to the high costs of hosting Formula 1 for the circuit and the sport has not become any more budget-friendly in the meantime.

The South African Grand Prix

One circuit that's generating considerable anticipation for its potential return is Kyalami in South Africa. This track had a rich history, having hosted the South African Grand Prix regularly from 1967 to 1993. Unfortunately, as is often the case, financial constraints led to the race's discontinuation.

A deal to bring back Kyalami for next season fell through earlier this year, so it looks unlikely a return will come any time soon.
