Bahrain Grand Prix 2024 - F1 Race

Prepare for the roar of engines in the desert as Formula One embarks on its most ambitious journey yet – a record-breaking 24-race calendar, kicking off at the
Bahrain International Circuit. The curtain rises in the familiar desert heat of Bahrain, with the Grand Prix kicking off on Saturday, March 2nd.

This year sees a shake-up on the grid with two new teams joining the fray. Alfa Romeo departs, leaving behind Stake F1 Team Kick Sauber, while Visa Cash App RB F1 Team replaces Alpha Tauri. 

However, driver changes remain surprisingly static – all teams retain their top pairings from 2023. This provides a sense of continuity but also brings up the question: can any team dethrone Red Bull and their reigning champion, Max Verstappen?

One eye-catching development this year is the return of the Chinese Grand Prix after a four-year hiatus. Fans can expect high-octane action on the iconic Shanghai International Circuit.

All the race enthusiasts out there, mark your calendars! 

Due to the holy month of Ramadan, the Bahrain race is pushed a day forward, making it a Saturday night spectacle.

The action begins on Wednesday with driver briefings and season previews, followed by practice sessions on Thursday. Qualifying takes centre stage on Friday, and the 57-lap Bahrain Grand Prix explodes onto the scene on Saturday at 3 PM local time.

Gear up for an unforgettable start to a record-breaking season of high-speed drama and strategic battles!
