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

The 2024 Formula 1 season has a record-breaking 24 races with the return of the Chinese Grand Prix this weekend.

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 9 of the 2024 Formula 1 season is the Canadian Grand Prix. The event is held on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Notre Dame Island in Montreal. 

The Canadian Grand Prix will take place between 7-9 June, with Sunday’s race starting at 7pm BST – 2pm local time.  

The race has been held 58 times since 1961, with Canada’s own Peter Ryan in the Lotus winning the inaugural grand prix. The event was initially held at the Mosport Park in Ontario between 1961 and 1978, alternating with the Circuit Mont-Tremblant in Quebec in 1968 and 1970.

The Canadian GP moved to the Circuit Ile Notre-Dame in 1978 (renamed the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 1982 in honour of the Canadian driver) due to safety concerns around the other two tracks, with Gilles Villeneuve taking home the win in his home race. Michael Schumacher has taken home the most wins at the event, with seven podiums between 1994-2004.  

The 2011 Canadian Grand Prix holds the record for the longest race in F1 history, after Jenson Button crossed the finish line in four hours and five minutes, which included a red flag period.

Where is the Canadian Grand Prix being held?

The Canadian Grand Prix will take place at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. The event moved to the 4.361 km circuit in 1978 and was named after the Canadian F1 driver Gilles Villeneuve, who died in 1982.  

One of the most notable parts of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is the Wall of Champions, which is the final corner on the track. It is known for crashes that involve former world champions, including famously in 1999 when Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve all crashed into the same wall.

In more recent years, the Wall of Champions has seen crashes from Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel, as well as former Formula Renault 3.5 champions Carlos Sainz and Kevin Magnussen. 

Valtteri Bottas set the lap record in 2019, when he set a time of 1:13.078 in his Mercedes W10.
