Formula 1 is well-known for its globe-trotting with drivers and teams jetting off to five continents over the course of the year in pursuit of being crowed World Champions.

What starts in Bahrain ends a little over 500 miles away in Abu Dhabi, but in the eight intervening months there will be 24 more races held in 20 countries traversing the globe.

You might be wondering, which races features the largest distance between each?

RacingNews365 has compiled a list of races on the calendar and ranked them from lowest to highest travelling distance. Each features a figure that is a direct route, not taking into account flight travel time.

Unsurprisingly the smallest distance is between the races in Belgium and Netherlands, while the distance between Austria and Great Britain is surprisingly larger than expected.

Check out the full list below!
