Bahrain Formula 2 F2 2024

FIA Formula 2 gets the 2024 season underway with Round 1 in Bahrain this weekend, but when will the new cars hit the track for competitive action?

The season opener has a different schedule than normal as the Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix is taking place on Saturday, rather than the customary Sunday.

It’s been moved forward to accommodate the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, something which will happen again next weekend in Saudi Arabia.

As a result, the F2 drivers will have their single practice session and Qualifying on Thursday 29th February, with the Sprint Race, with the top-10 qualifiers reversed, on Friday 1st March.

The Feature Race, which offers 25 championship points to the winner, is on Saturday 2nd March.
