Why F1 Bahrain and Saudi Arabian GPs are Taking Place on Saturdays in 2024

The 2024 F1 season features two races on Saturday – the Bahrain and Saudi Arabian GPs – due to the start of Ramadan. The entire schedule has been brought forward by a day, with free practice sessions on Thursday and qualifying on Friday before the Saturday races. The Las Vegas GP in November will also be held on a Saturday due to a large time difference. The last time F1 raced on a Saturday was in 1985.
