F1 schedule 2024: Dates, start times, TV channels, live stream and how to watch every Formula 1 race this year | Sporting News

An unparalleled season of F1 is well up and running following an electrifying opening three races in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Australia. Max Verstappen is the defending champion having won his third consecutive title at a canter in 2023, and started the new year with two dominant victories before withdrawing just three laps into the Australian Grand Prix.

Beating his own record for number of races won in a single season with a massive 19 from 22 on offer, the flying Dutchman came into the new campaign as a three-time champion, and has already won two of the three meetings so far in 2024 — with another 21 to go before the end of the year.

His Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez and Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, the only other winners of races in 2023, have pushed Verstappen closest so far this year, with Perez finishing as runner-up behind the Dutchman in the opening two races before Sainz stormed to victory in Australia.

The Sporting News is the place to be for all the latest F1 news and updates, and with more races and storylines on show than ever before, we’ve got you covered with all the details you’ll need to ensure you don’t miss a second of the action.

2024 Formula 1 season schedule

The 2024 F1 season began in Bahrain, before a short trip across the Persian Gulf to Saudi Arabia the following week. The Albert Park Circuit in Melbourne, Australia was next up, and was the first race of the campaign to take place on a Sunday after the opening two were held on Saturdays to accommodate the start of Ramadan.

Staying in the Asia-Pacific region, the next two races will take place in Japan and China, the latter hosting their first Grand Prix since 2019 after four years off the calendar following the covid-19 pandemic.

The middle portion of the season sees seven back-to-back races held in Europe, beginning with June’s Spanish Grand Prix and ending with the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, before heading east to Baku for the Azerbaijan circuit.

Following the only the second Grand Prix in Las Vegas since 1982 at the end of November, this record 24-race season concludes in the Middle East, with Qatar and Abu Dhabi hosting the final two circuits of the campaign.
