When is the Chinese Grand Prix? Full F1 2024 calendar and schedule

The first sprint race of the Formula One season will be held at the Chinese Grand Prix later this month.

Shanghai will welcome F1 back for the first time in five years with the race scheduled for Sunday, April 21.

Max Verstappen leads the championship after cruising to another Red Bull 1-2 victory in Japan.

However, the Dutchman has never won in China with Red Bull’s last triumph at the circuit coming via Daniel Ricciardo in 2018. Lewis Hamilton has claimed the chequered flag six times, far more than any other driver.
