Record-Breaking 24 Races

Formula One has revealed that the 2024 season will feature a record-breaking 24 races, one more than this year's 23.

Controversial Sprint Race Format Returns

Despite its divisive nature, F1 bosses have decided to expand the Sprint Race format for the 2024 season. This move is likely to upset reigning world champion Max Verstappen, who has previously expressed his dislike for Sprint Races.

New Venues Added to the Calendar

The 2024 Sprint Race calendar will include two new venues: China and Miami. The Chinese Grand Prix, which was cancelled in 2023 due to Covid-19, will now host a Sprint Race, along with Miami. The format will also return to Austria, America (COTA), Brazil, and Qatar.

Verstappen's Criticism of Sprint Races

Max Verstappen has been vocal about his distaste for Sprint Races, stating that they make the race weekends too intense. He has even threatened to quit F1 if further changes are made to the rules.
