SHANGHAI AND MIAMI WILL HOST F1 SPRINTS FOR FIRST TIME IN 2024

The United States will host two of next year's six Formula One sprint races with Miami joining Austin's Circuit of the Americas in embracing a format likely to undergo further changes before the start of the season. Miami and China's Shanghai circuit, the latter returning for the first time since pre-pandemic 2019, will be hosting a sprint for the first time. Austin, Austria, Brazil and Qatar all hosted sprints this season and will do so again in 2024.

China, round five on the calendar, will host the first sprint in April with Miami in May, Austria in June, Austin in October, Brazil in November and Qatar in November/December. Red Bull's Max Verstappen clinched his third title in the sprint in Qatar last October, the first time since the 1980s that a championship had been won on a Saturday instead of Sunday. Brazil's Interlagos in Sao Paulo is the only circuit to have hosted a sprint since the format was introduced at three rounds in 2021 as qualifying for the main grand prix.
