It has notably undergone a number of renovations in recent years.

Ahead of the 2022 race, seven corners were adjusted – with two removed entirely – in an effort to enable more overtaking opportunities and promote faster and more competitive racing.

The chicane at Turns 9 and 10 was also removed, with these changes set to remain long-term.

Formula 1 schedule 2024

F1 have released a 24-race calendar for the 2024 season, set to take place between March and December next year.

The action will kick off in Bahrain and finish in Abu Dhabi.

With a focus on greater calendar regionalisation to help the sport to cut down on CO2 emissions and meet its own sustainability strategy goals, a number of races have been moved to new slots – most notably the Japanese, Azerbaijan and Qatar Grands Prix.

The 2024 calendar will also see the opening two races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia take place on a Saturday as opposed to the traditional Sunday slot.
