Formula One is at the pinnacle of international single-seat motor racing. Watched by millions of viewers around the world, it is the ultimate test of man and machine, team-work and strategy, technical know-how and ingenuity, combines to produce a fascinating spectacle. The first FIA Formula One World Championship took place in 1950 since then it has evolved significantly to become the most watched sporting event on the planet with the exception of the Olympic Games and the FIFA Football World Cup.
Ten teams will contest the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship over a record schedule length of 24 races that cover five continents. The season starts in Bahrain on March 2 and finishes in Abu Dhabi on December 8. There are two championships up for grabs, one for the driver who accumulates the most points in a season, and the other for the constructor who amasses the most points cumulatively from both of its drivers.
There will be four double-headers and three triple-headers scattered throughout the calendar, ensuring an enthralling campaign. As Formula 1 continues to aim for greater calendar regionalization to help the logistical challenges of the global sport, several Grand Prix have shifted from what could be considered their traditional spots on the calendar such as the Japanese Grand Prix and Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
