F1 calendar 2024: Chinese Grand Prix returns as part of major schedule change

The season starts with races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia to be held on Saturdays, because of the impact of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. In the quest for greater sustainability, the Japanese race moves to 7 April from its usual autumn date. The calendar features what would be a record 24 races – exactly the same number as were due to be held this year before the cancellation of the Chinese and Emilia-Romagna Grands Prix. Earlier this year, Australian Grand Prix organisers announced that Saudi Arabia would hold the opening race of the 2024 season. Ramadan starts on the evening of 10 March, the day after the Saudi event.
