The season will start for all categories in Bahrain at the beginning of March (02.03). Then, Formula 2 will move to Saudi Arabia the following week alongside Formula 1. Formula 3 will be back on track at the end of March in Australia for another weekend full of racing with both F2 and F3.

While Formula 1 will go on to race in Japan, China, and Miami between April and May, the feeder series will have a first break, only regaining the track in mid-May for the first Italian race of the season with the Emilia Romagna GP in Imola (19.05). The following weekend, all categories will also take the track for the Monaco GP (26.05), after which F1 will fly out solo to Montreal for the Canadian GP.

All drivers will take the wheel in Barcelona (25.06), Spielberg (30.06), Silverstone (07.07), Budapest (21.07), and Spa-Francorchamps (28.07) before the summer break.

Summer break and winter hiatus

Formula 2 will then follow the Circus in the Netherlands at the end of August to race in Zandvoort. The Formula 3 calendar will then host its final races of the season in Monza (01.09) for another full weekend with both F1 and F2 racing as well at the Temple of Speed.

Formula 2 will then fly to Baku for the Azerbaijan GP (15.09) to then enter a long hiatus until the beginning of December. In the meantime, F1 will take the track alone in Singapore and then move to the Americas for the races in Austin, Mexico, Brazil, and Las Vegas.

The end of the season will finally see the return of Formula 2 for the final races in Qatar (01.12) and the traditional season finale in Abu Dhabi (08.12).

Sulayem: ‘Feeder series of vital importance for the sport’

Commenting on the news, FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem reiterated the importance of the presence of feeder series for the Federation: “The FIA junior single-seater categories are of vital importance to the success of motorsport at the very highest levels, and for the young drivers to develop on the global platform of Formula 1 is, without doubt, the right pathway.

The calendar that we are very pleased to confirm today provides a broad range of circuits, including some of the most challenging and iconic racing venues anywhere in the world, on which the potential stars of the future will give the drivers the best possible preparation for the next step up the ladder.”

To sum up, the calendar will see Formula 2 lined up for fourteen rounds and twenty-eight races in 2024. On the other side, Formula 3 will support Formula 1 for ten weekends and across three continents. Moreover, with seven remaining weekends in which F1 is currently planned to take the track alone, it will be interesting to see whether the new F1 Academy will also pair the Circus more in the next season.
