The 2024 Formula 1 sprint race schedule now includes two new locations, Miami and China. The venues for the six events have been confirmed by FOM. Baku and Spa will go back to their regular grand prix schedules, while Brazil, Austria, Circuit of the Americas, and Qatar will stay on the sprint schedule. As replacement races, the Chinese Grand Prix on April 21 and the Miami GP on May 5 will make their debuts. These races were selected intentionally for their appropriateness in the early phases of the campaign. The decision-makers took into account a number of variables, including the fact that Bahrain and Saudi Arabia would have been unsuitable for a sprint in the early season and that timezone variations would have made it difficult for European audiences to engage with a sprint in Australia.
F1: About Formula 1 Sprint Race
Formula 1 has maintained some weekends for sprint races since its beginning in 2021, when the series first began. In 2022, the number of weekends was expanded to six. In 2021, the structure only counted the top three finishers; however, throughout the previous three years, changes have been made to the model, one of which is the revision of the point distribution to the top eight finishers.
China, Brazil, Miami, Austria, and Qatar will host the Formula One sprint events in 2024. Importantly, F1 sprint races will be held in China and Miami for the first time, while Qatar and Austin will return for a second stint after being included in 2023. Austria will receive a sprint race for the third time in 2024, joining Brazil as the only site that routinely hosts a sprint race every year.

Among the most notable changes is the relocation of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix to September and the Japan Grand Prix to April's fourth slot. In April, Shanghai will host the Chinese Grand Prix again. As the last race of the season before the summer break, the famed Spa-Franchorchamps will play host to a Formula 1 event. The circuit is famous for hosting the legendary Belgian Grand Prix. When the summer break ends, Zandvoort will once again kick off the season.
