F1 Qualifying Today: Bahrain GP 2024 start times, schedule and TV

The long-awaited 2024 Formula 1 season kicks off with the Bahrain Grand Prix at the Bahrain International Circuit for the fourth consecutive year.

A unique scheduling adjustment occurred due to the rescheduling of the second race in Saudi Arabia to March 9th, aligned with Ramadan starting on March 10th.

This shift prompted changes to the Bahrain Grand Prix schedule, with qualifying taking place on Friday rather than the usual Saturday, setting the grid for the season opener.
