“F1 Shifts Gears: Chinese Grand Prix Back in 2024 as Schedule Lights Up”!

F1 fans rejoice – the Formula 1 calendar is undergoing a major shake-up for 2024, with a record 24 races set to be held. China will be making its long-awaited return, after missing out earlier this year due to Covid restrictions. Bahrain and Saudi Arabia have been chosen as the first two events of the season, kicking off on Saturdays to accommodate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The Japanese Grand Prix has moved to April, while Singapore has been twinned with Azerbaijan in September.

This new schedule marks a huge step towards greater sustainability for F1, introducing new opportunities for fans all around the world. Earlier this year, it was announced that Saudi Arabia would become the opening race in 2024 – but F1 has found an inventive way to make room for both Bahrain and Jeddah before Melbourne by turning these two events into Saturday night races.

Regardless of local lockdowns, we can now look forward to seeing Chinese cars tearing up the track once again, as social restrictions have now been lifted. It’s sure to be a thrilling experience for fans – bringing us back together in our shared love for one of the most exciting sports in the world!

As Formula 1 sets its sights on becoming net-zero carbon by 2030, a move towards regionalisation has been made to reduce carbon emissions from flights. Despite this, Canadian organisers have resisted F1’s attempts to twin the Montreal Grand Prix with Miami in May, keeping the traditional June date for the Canadian race. This means teams must cross the Atlantic twice in a span of weeks.

“Our journey to a more sustainable calendar will continue in the coming years as part of our Net Zero 2030 commitment,” commented F1 Chairman Stefano Domenicali. FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem echoed those sentiments, sharing that “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.” The pre-season tests are set to take place in Bahrain on 21-23 February, pending approval from the FIA world motorsport council.
