2024 F1 Bahrain GP: How to watch, TV times on ESPN

This year’s Bahrain Grand Prix breaks from tradition, occurring on Saturday, March 2nd, at 10:00 am ET at the Bahrain International Circuit. The deviation from the usual schedule stems from Ramadan starting on Sunday, March 10th, prompting the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix to be moved forward by a day, scheduled for Saturday night.

The alteration in the Bahrain Grand Prix date also ties into Formula 1 regulations, which mandate a minimum one-week gap between races. Consequently, the Bahrain season opener was rescheduled a week earlier, necessitating adjustments to accommodate this rule.
