The calendar: 24 races for 2024

Formula 1 will scale new heights in 2024 with a record schedule length of 24 races for the first time. All race weekends will be live on Sky Sports F1.

The season again starts in the Middle East with back-to-back races in Bahrain (March 2) and Saudi Arabia (March 9). They will both take place on a Saturday in 2024 due to Ramadan.

China returns for the first time since 2019, as the season’s fifth round, while the British GP at Silverstone is on July 7. The season will finish in December with the Abu Dhabi GP on December 8.

The number and identity of 2024’s Sprint events are not yet confirmed.

Pre-season testing will again take place in Bahrain the week before the opening grand prix at the same circuit from February 21-23.

The drivers: A rare unchanged grid

If the make-up of the 2024 field looks familiar, then that’s because it is. The 20-driver grid that lines up in Bahrain on March 2 will be exactly the same as the one that finished the 2023 campaign in Abu Dhabi.

While such winter stability is highly unusual, don’t expect that to last long-term given as many as 15 of the field are out of contract at the end of 2024.

Only Lewis Hamilton, George Russell, Lando Norris (all 2025), Oscar Piastri (2026) and Max Verstappen (2028) officially have deals in place beyond 2024 so far.
