It may be prudent for Red Bull to cross champagne off their immediate shopping list after watching a Ferrari one-two let it fly in Australia.


Neutral fans across the world dread the idea of a 2024 season-long procession to another Max Verstappen coronation, but brake failure and subsequent race retirement from the Dutch superstar in Melbourne will have dampened the mood in the camp – for now at least.

In contrast, Ferrari showed tremendous pace to hold on for a Carlos Sainz victory with Charles Leclerc coming in second. Perhaps even more impressively is that their car appeared to show threatening pace even before Verstappen's race was scrubbed.

The calendar is a bumper-length adventure in 2024 with, aptly, 24 races to savour between March and December.

The globe-trotting tour will soak up the Middle East, the Far East and Australia before a predominantly European summer and final stretch across the Americas, with plenty of other locations scattered throughout the campaign.

More like this brings you up to speed with the next F1 Grand Prix on the schedule for 2024.
