With the 2024 season less than two months away, we have prepared our top three somewhat realistic wishes we hope to come true this year.
There are multiple things that we would like to see, but we had to narrow our list down to the top three. If you have different wishes for the upcoming season, share them with us in the comments below!

3. Changes To Sprint Weekend Format

The topic of the sprint weekends has already been discussed quite a lot throughout the 2023 season. Some people like them, and some don't, but almost everybody agrees there is space for improvement.
Formula 1 announced six venues that will host Sprint races in 2023, and it is clear they are not going away. However, FIA president Ben Sulayem asserted he will work on potential improvements with F1 teams and management.
What would we like to see? Perhaps one of the most interesting suggestions was the reversed or semi-reversed grid for the sprint race.
One qualification would determine the starting order for the race on Sunday, and drivers would be motivated to finish first, but then the order would be changed for the Sprint race.
This way, we might see some more exciting battles as drivers try to fight their way up the grid. Moreover, it wouldn't spoil the race on Sunday.

2. Grand Prix Wins For Alonso And Norris

Almost everybody in the F1 community loves both Fernando Alonso and Lando Norris. What do these two drivers have in common? Both haven't won a single race in a very long time and in the Brit's case, never.
It sounds almost unbelievable when we say it, but the Spanish Matador recorded his last win 11 years ago. Nevertheless, both drivers had quite competitive cars in 2023 and missed the podium's top step by a whisker.
Going into 2024, both drivers should have quite competitive cars again (based on the end of 2023), and many fans would like to see the celebrations of the two drivers once they finally achieve the Grand Prix victory.

1. Three-Way Battle For The Championship

This is something that we haven't had in Formula One for quite a long time. The last exciting battle for the Championship was in 2021 between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.
Red Bull has recorded the most dominant season in the history of F1 during 2023. Therefore, it seems like a quite ambitious wish to see a three-way battle for the Championship.
However, it isn't as crazy as it sounds. There are four teams right behind Red Bull that were all more or less equal in 2023, and all of them closed the gap to the team from Milton Keynes quite significantly.
We need only two of these teams to make a big enough step forward to be able to go toe-to-toe with Verstappen and Red Bull. Is Red Bull still most likely to win the 2024 Championship? Sure.
We wouldn't mind if Verstappen and Red Bull won the championship again, but to see a close battle between multiple drivers and teams would be quite exciting!
