FIA reveals 24 date schedule for 2024

NEWS STORY
05/07/2023

F1 returns to China in 2024, as reshuffle sees significant changes for Japanese and Baku events in a calendar that stretches into December.

The schedule, which has been approved by the World Motor Sport Council, features 24 races and begins in Bahrain on March 2 and finishes in Abu Dhabi on December 8.

The schedule includes 5 double headers and 3 triple-headers, while along with the traditional four-week summer break (between Spa & Zandvoort), there is a further four-week break between Singapore & Austin and a 3-week break between Sao Paulo & Las Vegas.

Formula 1 has made clear its intention to move towards greater calendar regionalisation, reducing logistical burdens and making the season more sustainable. By moving Japan to April, Azerbaijan to September and Qatar back-to-back with Abu Dhabi this calendar creates a better flow of races in certain regions, and this work will continue while being realistic to the fact that as a world championship, with climactic and contractual constraints, there will always be travel required that cannot be completely regionalised.

The opening two races of the season in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia will take place on a Saturday. This decision has been taken to accommodate Ramadan which begins on the Sunday of the original Saudi Arabian race weekend.

"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," said Mohammed Ben Sulayem. "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 Domenicali 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."

"I am delighted to announce the 2024 calendar with 24 races that will deliver an exciting season for our fans around the world," added 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."

"@trackrecords - they lent a copy of their world map to Barbie for her movie. It’s the one that upset Vietnam so much. If you look at it carefully their travel itinerary makes perfect sense…

"So how will the Saturday races work? Is this part of their plan to make two day race weekends?"

"Doesn't F1 possess a globe and realise that they could go in straight lines not zig-zags? Austin to Mexico to Brazil to Vegas isn't regional or a straight line!"

"Saturday races suit me just fine as I can watch them on Sunday so that's good for me on a selfish front.
Monza and Baku straights close together might help the teams a bit with their upgrade planning.
Aside from that, it's good to see the schedule out now so those that attend can plan their trips."
