Things get started in Bahrain
As in previous years, the 2024 Formula 1 season will open in Bahrain. The 2023 race was a resounding success for Oracle Red Bull Racing as World Champion Verstappen secured victory, followed by team-mate Sergio Pérez. Third place went to Fernando Alonso for Aston Martin.
Second stop is Saudi Arabia
The race on the Jeddah Corniche Circuit in Saudi Arabia celebrated its premiere in the 2021 season and Verstappen finished second. In the 2022 season, the Dutchman got his first win on his way to becoming a double world champion. At the GP in 2023, victory went to Pérez, who celebrated his fifth triumph in Formula 1 - the fourth at a street circuit.
Eyes down for a trip Down Under
The third race of the season will take us Down Under. After a break in 2021, the Australian Grand Prix returned to the Albert Park circuit in 2022.
In a turbulent 2023 race, Verstappen secured pole position and victory. Pérez, who started with penalties due to maintenance work, was also in top form and triumphantly caught up to finish in fifth place. With 10th place, Yuki Tsunoda scored the first point of the season for Scuderia AlphaTauri.
Going big in Japan
The Suzuka International Racing Course is the mostly on, sometimes off, home of the Japanese Grand Prix. Verstappen took maximum points from Japan in 2023 with the race win as well as the fastest lap and pole position. We head back to the 5.807km Suzuka racetrack on April 7, 2024.
Heading back to China
The Chinese Grand Prix returns to the F1 calendar after a four year absence. The last running of the Chinese Grand Prix was in 2019 and now in 2024 were finally heading back to the Shanghai International Circuit. Will Oracle Red Bull Racing get their first victory at the circuit since Daniel Ricciardo's win in 2018?
The Miami Grand Prix made its debut in 2022 and was back the following year to determine a winner on the tight and narrow circuit. Verstappen again showed his dominance. Although the Dutchman started the race from 10th place, he secured victory in the end. Again in front of team-mate Pérez, who had started on pole.
Monaco is the one they all want to win
Of course, the cult race par excellence on the narrow circuit in Monte Carlo can not be missing from the 2024 F1 season. After Pérez was successful in 2022, victory last year went to serial world champion Verstappen, who played to his strengths in unpredictable race conditions that switched between sun and rain.
Heat hits the Red Bull Ring in late June
On July 2, 2023, the Austrian Grand Prix took place at the Red Bull Ring and Verstappen sent the crowd wild with his fourth win at the venue. For good measure, the Dutchman also won the weekend's Sprint Race. You can be sure he'll be pushing for win number five in 2024.
The best of British
The British Grand Prix was first contested in 1926 and is fast approaching its centenary year. The most recent racer to create history at Silverstone was Verstappen. In 2023 he finished ahead of British drivers Lando Norris and Lewis Hamilton to top the podium. That was Verstappen’s first win at the British Grand Prix and he’ll be out to make it two in a row in 2024.
Zandvoort has a crowd favourite
It’s been great to have the Dutch Grand Prix back on the F1 calendar, returning as it did in 2021 following a 35 year hiatus. Since it’s been back there’s only been one driver that the locals want to see win… home hero Verstappen. He won a wet weather race from pole in 2023 and the partisan crowd will want the same result in 2024.
The Italian Grand Prix never disappoints and the 2023 race was no exception. Verstappen’s victory was his tenth consecutive race win in a row, breaking Sebastian Vettel's record of nine consecutive race victories in 2013. Verstappen, Pérez and polesitter Carlos Sainz Jr. of Ferrari made up the podium.
Marina Bay is getting a great rep
In the 2023 World Championship this was the first race of the season not won by an Oracle Red Bull Racing driver. Here’s where Verstappen's record streak of ten consecutive wins and the team’s record streak of fifteen consecutive wins both ended. It wasn’t all bad news though, AlphaTauri driver Liam Lawson scored his first points in Formula One by finishing ninth in the race. Still, there’s room for improvement here in 2024.
We're heading back to Vegas
We were treated to a real premiere at the penultimate race of the 2023 Formula 1 season. The Las Vegas Grand Prix was the third and last race of the 2023 season to take place in the USA.
The 6.12 kilometre long street circuit returns in 2024. It features six right-hand and 11 left-hand corners as well as three long straights. Expect top speeds of up to 342kph.
What will be waiting for us in Abu Dhabi?
The nerve jangling finale of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix remains the most remarkable conclusion to any sport season in recent years. Verstappen’s final lap pass on Hamilton clinched the Dutchman his first World Championship and he hasn’t looked back since. Will Verstappen be lifting championship number four when we return to Abu Dhabi in 2024?
