How Has the F1 Calendar Changed in 2024?
The theme for this year is regionalisation, with consolidated travelling marking a large step towards sustainability and the Formula One Net Zero 2030 commitment. In terms of new circuits, we have one. As Formula 1 returns to the Shanghai International Circuit in Jiading, China, on April 19-21. We’ve broken down all the schedule changes, dates, and midseason breaks in the guide to the 2024 Formula 1 schedule below. The first three races will remain at the same locations in 2024. Starting with Bahrain and Saudi Arabia on Saturdays (to accommodate Ramadan) before skipping a weekend and heading to the first street circuit of the calendar year at Albert Park in Australia.
Then the changes begin, where instead of heading to Baku in Azerbaijan, we’ll be travelling to Japan and the crowd favourite Suzuka International Racing Course. A clear indicator of the regionalisation of the calendar in an effort to make the season more sustainable as part of the Formula One Net Zero 2030 commitment.
After Japan, we have our first new circuit of the year in China at the Shanghai International Circuit in Jiading where the F1 teams will return for the first time since 2019. Then it’s back to America at the Miami International Autodrome – the first of three races to be hosted in the United States during the 2024 F1 Calendar year.
The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola and Monaco are next (same as 2023) before things change again and we head to Spain and then Canada (flipped from 2023) and then onto Austria at the Red Bull Ring and The United Kingdom for Silverstone on July 5-7 marking the halfway point of the Formula 1 season and the midseason break.
After the break, we return to Hungary, Belgium, Netherlands, and Italy before Azerbaijan and the Baku City Circuit that pushes the Singapore GP back a weekend onto September 20-22. The second of three races to be hosted in the USA is up next in Austin, Texas, before Mexico and Brazil.
The ending of the 2024 Formula 1 season is a threesome of (what can only be described as) extremely expensive calendar events. First is the Las Vegas Grand Prix, where the F1 made a $240 Million investment for the Grand Prix site alone. Before we head to the most expensive contract of the season in Qatar at the Losail International Circuit where the Qataris are paying upwards of $40 Million a year just to host the event, according to Reuters. Finally, the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi for the final race of the season where Max Verstappen can finally touch the trophy he won 10 races ago.
The first race of the 2024 F1 season will be on February 29th at the Bahrain International Circuit in Bahrain.
The Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi will host the final race of the season on December 6-8.
The 2024 F1 calendar season will host 24 races. Adding 1 race at the Shanghai International Circuit in Jiading, China, on April 19-21.
