Racing set to flag off Thursday as Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2024 weekend gets underway at BIC

  • Three days of racing and entertainment to celebrate ’20 Years of a Modern Classic’, showcasing Kingdom of Bahrain’s landmark 20th anniversary in F1
  • BIC to begin welcoming fans at 9am on Thursday morning, with gates scheduled to remain open until 11pm
  • First day of on-track action to be highlighted by two hour-long F1 practices, with sessions also taking place in F2, F3, and PCCME

The wait is finally over! The highly anticipated Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2024 gets underway Thursday (29 February) at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), officially kicking off the 2024 FIA F1 World Championship and the Kingdom of Bahrain’s 20th anniversary celebrations in motorsport’s top flight.

The global spotlight will be shining on “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East”, as F1’s superstar drivers hit the track for the first time this race weekend, showcasing “20 Years of a Modern Classic”.

BIC will be welcoming fans from 9am on Thursday morning and gates will remain open until 11pm.

Spectators will be able to enjoy a full day’s programme of racing and entertainment, highlighted by the two F1 practice sessions. The first is scheduled to flag off at 2.30pm in daytime conditions, and then the second will take place at 6pm under BIC’s bright, state-of-the-art floodlights. The two F1 practices will be held over an hour apiece.

All 10 F1 teams will be putting their contenders through their paces in order to get them ready for the season’s first qualifying session on Friday, which will be preceded by a third practice.

Qualifying will determine the grid for the first-ever Saturday night race in Bahrain—the weekend’s 57-lap main event, marking the culmination of an historic occasion in Sakhir as well as the long-awaited start to the new F1 campaign.

Ahead of Thursday’s start to racing, F1’s superstar drivers conducted their customary pre-event track walk on Wednesday, accompanied by team members around BIC’s 5.412-kilometre Grand Prix circuit.

F1, International Automobile Federation (FIA), BIC (BIC) and Bahrain Motor Federation officials also completed their behind-the-scenes work on Wednesday, include a track inspection; checks on all timing, marshalling, and broadcasting systems; a high-speed track test involving both the F1 safety and medical cars going out onto the circuit; and other tasks.

These essential activities help ensure the highest levels of safety for all participants this weekend, and the smooth running of all the racing action.

F1 is set to be joined on track by the FIA Formula 2 Championship, the FIA Formula 3 Championship, and the Porsche Carrera Cup Middle East (PCCME).

F2 and F3 are both holding their season-opening rounds in the Kingdom, while the PCCME will be staging the fifth and penultimate meeting of its 2023/2024 campaign.

All three support series will also be on track Thursday. F2 and F3 will each hold a practice and qualifying, while the PCCME will have two practice sessions.

The PCCME will be the first out onto the circuit with practice one scheduled for a 9.45am start. Practice two will then follow in the evening starting at 7.30pm.

The F3 practice will be held at 10.55pm, and then qualifying will take place at 4pm. The F2 field will first hit the tarmac for their practice session at 12.05pm, and then qualifying will follow at 4.55pm.
