F1 sprint races to come to Miami and Shanghai in 2024

Miami and Shanghai are slated to host two of next year’s six Formula One sprint races, a first for both cities, per the 2024 sprint calendar published Tuesday.

“I am delighted to announce six exciting venues for next season’s F1 Sprint events, including two new hosts China and Miami, both of which will be fantastic additions and provide great racing for all our fans at the race and watching at home,” said F1 President and CEO Stefano Domenicali in the announcement.

“Since its creation in 2021, the Sprint has been consistent in delivering increased audiences on TV, more on track entertainment for the fans at events and increased fan engagement on social and digital platforms, and we are looking forward to the exciting events next year.”

The first sprint race of the next season will be held in April at the Chinese Grand Prix, which is returning for the first time since 2019 due to the pandemic. Miami’s sprint race will be held in May at the third year Miami Grand Prix.

“The addition of Shanghai will be a challenge for the teams and drivers as Formula 1 heads back to China for the first time since 2019, while a Sprint in Miami will add a new dimension to an enthralling weekend,” FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem added.

Other sprint races scheduled for the 2024 season include Austria in June, Austin in October, Brazil in November and Qatar in November-December. The Azerbaijan Grand Prix and Belgian Grand Prix, which saw sprints this year, will return to regular formats.

Due to a proposal approved in November, the new season will also see sprint races held before the qualifying session, changing up the typical schedule of F1 racing weekends.
