2024 Chinese Grand Prix: How to watch, schedule and odds for sprint race weekend

After a brief break from Max Verstappen's dominance over the sport, Formula 1 got back to the typical results last time out in Japan. Verstappen's third win in four races continues the dominant run he started mid-way through the 2022 season.

This weekend, the sport heads back to China for the first time since 2019. Five years ago, the race at the Shanghai International Circuit marked the sport's 1,000th event. Since then, much has changed, but the track remains a favorite among drivers and fans.

This weekend's Chinese Grand Prix is also the first sprint race weekend of the season. Here's a look at the broadcast schedule:
