The 2024 Canadian Grand Prix has been confirmed as happening from 7-9 June 2024. It’s one of 24 stages in the recently announced F1 2024 calendar. Although the calendar partly reflects F1’s attempts to regionalise, the Canadian Grand Prix is an exception. It takes place between two European races, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Spanish Grand Prix, as you can see in the full calendar provided below.

F1 looking to reduce its carbon footprint

Given the significant amount of information confirming F1’s significant carbon footprint it’s not surprising the organisation is attempting to make changes. It has created a plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. Regionalising the calendar is part of this plan. This regionalisation aims to reduce distances travelled during the F1 Championship.

Despite F1’s dedication to regionalising its events, the Canadian Grand Prix is still taking place in June, right between two races in Europe. This positioning has always been the intention of promoter François Dumontier, partly due to the climate in Montreal, where the Canadian Grand Prix is held.


Will Verstappen triumph again in 2024?

This year’s Canadian Grand Prix was won easily by Max Verstappen as he came closer to achieving a third straight World Drivers Championship title. The result was also a big achievement for Red Bull as the constructor kept up its 100% winning record for the season.

Given Verstappen’s previous performances and betting odds prior to the Canadian Grand Prix, the Belgian’s success is not surprising. Odds on Verstappen were -400, with odds of +450, and +850 for second and third place Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, respectively.

Looking forward to the recently announced 2024 Canadian Grand Prix, we considered information from concerning betting and odds on the race. It’s hard to see past Verstappen as the winner again. Although, this year’s placed drivers, including Alonso and Hamilton, as well as Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz, and Sergio Perez, should not be overlooked.

The odds on drivers placing for next season’s race will become clearer as we reach the end of the 2023 season in November and head towards the 2024 calendar.
