There are three important differences regarding past seasons or the current Formula 1 season with what we will have in 2024.

Saturday races

Already in 2023 we will have the first race since 1985 that will start on Saturday, when it will take place on November 18th at the track in Las Vegas, USA.

However, for 2024, what’s new is that the first two circuits of the season will have an official competition on Saturday.

In 2024, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia will join Las Vegas to make it three Saturday races on the calendar, the former two taking up Ramadan.which is a period of fasting, prayer and meditation that Muslims around the world adhere to, which begins on Sunday, March 10, one day after the Grand Prix in Saudi Arabia.

This means that all Grand Prix-related events will be moved up for one day, starting with Thursday’s two free practice sessions.

Calendar supports localization

Formula 1 strives to make motorsport more sustainable and travel between countries more efficient, which is why it decided to move some dates in the calendar.

China returns to the F1 calendar

Formula 1 has announced that China will once again take the Grand Prix, something that has not happened since 2019, when it left the calendar due to the difficulties presented by Covid-19.

This means Formula 1 will have 24 Super Grands Prix, with the traditional three-week summer break remaining in August, plus an additional three-week break between Singapore and Austin and a two-week break between Brazil and Las Vegas.
