Formula 1: 2024 Chinese Grand Prix qualifying, full starting lineup

For the first time since 2019, China has successfully managed to remain on the Formula 1 schedule all the way through race weekend, and Shanghai International Circuit, which hosted a race each year from 2004 to 2019, is set to host its first Chinese Grand Prix in a half-decade.

The 16-turn, 3.388-mile (5.452-kilometer) road course in Jiading, Shanghai did host a 19-lap sprint race earlier in the weekend, the first of six sprint races on the schedule, but the venue hasn't hosted a full-length Grand Prix since Formula 1 celebrate its 1,000th all-time race in April 2019.

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, who was as five-time world champion when Formula 1 most recently visited China, is the reigning winner of the Chinese Grand Prix.

Who will line up where on Sunday before the Shanghai International Circuit lights go out for the first time in more than five years?
