Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Australia to rotate season opener

Saudi Arabia will receive the opening round of the 2024 Formula One World Championship, the news being broken by an indirect source, as it was the Australian Grand Prix promoter who made in information public in the statement put out to announce the Melbourne race will remain in the calendar until the end of 2037, as the contract with Formula One was extended by another two years. But with the Ramadan holiday starting on March 10th and ending on April 8th, there is no way Bahrain can have its Grand Prix after the Melbourne event, so Formula One will have to bring forward to the last weekend of March another race, so that Bahrain can get its event done on the weekend ending on April 14th. Then, from 2027 until 2037, Melbourne will host the inaugural race of the Formula One season on another three occasions, rotating with Bahrain and Saudi Arabia in that position, according to sources from Formula One.
