F1 returns to the Lusail International Circuit for the Qatar Grand Prix as Max Verstappen aims to seal his third Drivers' title.

The country has held just one F1 race in its history - acting as a late call-up to the calendar in 2021 before missing last year's schedule due to its hosting duties for the FIFA World Cup.

Upon its return to the schedule, Qatar has been awarded a Sprint race, meaning qualifying takes place on Friday evening.

Below are Qualifying start times for the 2023 F1 Singapore Grand Prix from around the world.
