New F1 sprint format

The Sprint format for 2024 has changed in an attempt to create a better spectacle.

Following free practice on a Friday, Sprint qualifying (also known as the Sprint Shootout), rather than qualifying for Sunday's full-length race, will take place as the day's second session.

The Sprint will follow first thing on Saturday, before traditional qualifying comes later in the day, ahead of the race on Sunday.

The teams and drivers: A rare unchanged grid

If the make-up of the 2024 field looks familiar, then that's because it is. The 20-driver grid that lined up in Bahrain on was exactly the same as the one that finished the 2023 campaign in Abu Dhabi.

While such winter stability is highly unusual, don't expect that to last long-term given half the field are still out of contract at the end of 2024.
