Never so many races
24 races in 2024: with these numbers, we are getting closer to the next Formula 1 season, representing an absolute record in the number of scheduled races. Never before in the history of the Circus had such a high number of championship events been reached, to the delight of fans but also with criticism from drivers and teams who have often deemed the number of races and transfers between continents excessive.
The contract issue
The fact remains that, barring disastrous events such as the flood that hit Emilia-Romagna last May, forcing the organizers of the Imola Grand Prix to cancel the weekend, 2024 will go down in history as the richest championship ever. In this context, attention is focused on the calendar and the circuits that will host Formula 1, with some of them needing to conclude negotiations with F1 to extend their stay in the coming years.
Who is at risk and who has more guarantees
Indeed, there are two nations that risk exiting the calendar as early as 2025: Japan and Great Britain, with Suzuka and Silverstone, respectively. At the same time, 2025 will necessarily require many other organizers to work towards the continuation of their races, including the two Italian circuits, Imola and Monza, both expiring that year along with other great classics of this sport. The races in the Middle East are temporarily out of danger, as their contracts will ensure hosting F1 from 2030 onwards (except Saudi Arabia), but none more so than Australia, which, with Melbourne, will remain on the calendar until 2037, representing a record in this regard at least until this moment.
