Everything You Need To Know About The 2024 F1 Season 

Formula 1 is an exhilarating sport that requires bravery, commitment, and intense strength.  

As the 2023 F1 season has come to an end along with Red Bull and Verstappen’s dominance, let’s talk about everything that you need to know about the upcoming 2024 season! 

Drivers and Teams 

In 2024 the following teams will permanently change their names: Alpha Tauri, Aston Martin, and Alfa Romeo. 

Firstly, let’s talk about Alpha Tauri. Previously named ‘Torro Rosso’ between 2006 and 2019, and its latest name-change to the fashion brand Alpha Tauri in 2020. As Red Bulls’ sister team, it will undergo the Red Bull name treatment, as the likeliest tweak to the name would be ‘Racing Bulls’.  

Aston Martin is also subject to a name change, currently known as Aston Martin Amarco Cognizant F1 Team, the British racing team will drop ‘Cognizant’ from their name in 2024, and the new name will be confirmed in the early months of 2024 so keep an eye out! 

Finally, Alfa Romeo is the final team that will undergo a team name change. With the team having a 6-year partnership with Sauber Motorsport, and the change to the Audi banner in 2026, there are only 2 years left of Alfa Romeo. The name was revealed as ‘Stake F1 Team Kick Sauber’, but it did not go down well with the fans of the sport. This may result in a second change to the name soon. 

There are no current changes from the end of the 2023 lineup but there have been big changes at some of the teams, with Franz Tost standing down as Alpha Tauri team principal and Bradley Scanes standing down as Verstappen’s personal trainer. 

The teams and drivers are as follows:

Red Bull Max Verstappen (until end of 2028) Sergio Perez (until end of 2024) 
Mercedes George Russell (until end of 2025) Lewis Hamilton (until end of 2025)

F1’s pre-season testing for 2024 will begin on the 21st of February in Bahrain. This will last three days ahead of the first grand prix the following week. Each pre-season test will approximately run each day between the times of 10 am to 7 pm rather than 7:30 pm which happened in 2023.

2024 F1 Car Launch Dates 

The car launch dates are yet to be confirmed, however, we can predict that it will be between the 31st of January and the 16th of February as this is when the 2023 cars were revealed. We also know that they will all definitely be before the 21st of February as this is the pre-season testing begins.

2024 F1 FIA Regulation Changes 

The FIA has made a change to the regulations around the testing of old cars ensuring that any components must be used at a race weekend before being able to be used at testing. The regulation changes will ensure that teams cannot run any brand-new components on an old car to try and gain any advantages outside of testing restrictions. 

We hope that you all enjoy the 2024 season as much as we do! 

What do you think, will Red Bull and Verstappen show of their dominance once again or will a new team take over this season?
