F1 2024 schedule: When is the next Formula 1 race?

The 2024 Formula 1 season has a record-breaking 24 races, following the return of the Chinese Grand Prix.

The FIA has regionalised some of the F1 calendar in an attempt to make the series more sustainable. This included moving the Japanese Grand Prix from its mid-to-late-season spot to April for a more defined Asian leg, with the return of the Chinese Grand Prix following two weeks later. 

The Qatar Grand Prix was also moved to become the penultimate race on the calendar, to make it easier to transport cars and equipment to the Abu Dhabi finale. This should also help combat the extreme heat issues that were faced by the drivers in 2023 during the race at the Losail International Circuit, as it is expected to be cooler at the start of December. 

When is the next Formula 1 race?

Round 6 of the 2024 Formula season will be the Miami Grand Prix. The event is held at the Miami International Autodrome which sits in Miami Gardens’ Hard Rock Stadium.

The Miami Grand Prix made its debut on the F1 calendar in 2022 with a contract of ten years. It is also currently one of three American races alongside the United States Grand Prix in Texas and the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has won both races in 2022 and 2023, as well has holding the fastest lap record of 1:29.708.

Where is the Miami Grand Prix being held?

The Miami Grand Prix is being hosted at the Miami International Autodrome which is a purpose-built temporary track around the Hard Rock Stadium which is home to NFL team the Miami Dolphins.  

Despite not hosting an F1 race until recently, Miami has been home to sportscar and IndyCar races since the 1980s – organised by racing promoter Ralph Sanchez – with races taking place on the city's streets before the construction of the Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Once the track had opened, Bernie Ecclestone began discussions about the potential for an F1 race in Miami, but nothing initially came from these talks. Formula E made its return to Miami in 2015 with a one-off event which re-ignited the interest in bringing F1 to the city.

Liberty Media – the owners of Formula 1 – announced in 2018 that a full race would take place the following year but unfortunately the race was postponed by the city commissioners. The deal was extremely controversial amongst organisers of other races across the calendar after it was revealed that Formula 1 had offered the Miami City Commission to run the event with no hosting fee.

After numerous battles surrounding the track layout and the impact on local residents, the city commissioners approved a deal in 2021 and the race would finally take place the following year.

The track was designed by Apex Circuit Design who trialled 36 different layouts with a simulation test before finalising the 19-turn circuit. The track is 5.412km long and has an average speed of around 140mph, with top speeds of around 198mph – it is also home to one of the fastest and one of the slowest corners on the current F1 calendar.

The circuit is centered around the Hard Rock Stadium with the paddock built on the football field, making it one of the most unique paddocks on the 2024 grid.

Will the Miami Grand Prix be a sprint weekend?

The Miami Grand Prix is the second Sprint weekend of the 2024 season. The sprint race format has changed this year, with the sprint qualifying being moved to Friday after FP1 and the race qualifying moving to Saturday after the sprint race.

This means the sprint race will now take place on Saturday morning and has addressed complaints from the teams that their cars were locked into parc ferme conditions from Friday after just one practice session.

The changes to the format ensure that the parc ferme can be reopened between the sprint race and qualifying, allowing teams to make any fixes to the cars set-up.

There are six sprint weekends in the 2024 season: China, Miami, Austria, United States, Brazil and Qatar.
