Austrian Grand Prix 2023

Revised starting grid for the 2023 F1 Austrian Sprint after penalty

Here is the starting grid for the 2023 Formula 1 Austrian Sprint, which will be held at the Red Bull Ring on Saturday afternoon.

Max Verstappen will start from pole position for the F1 Sprint at the Austrian Grand Prix, with his time of 1:04.440 putting him nearly half a second clear of Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez.

Lando Norris lines up in third, with an equally impressive Nico Hulkenberg sharing the second row in P4.

The Ferrari duo of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc claimed fifth and sixth, but Leclerc has since been demoted to ninth after receiving a three-place grid penalty for impeding Oscar Piastri during the Sprint Shootout.

Meanwhile, Mercedes had a nightmare session. George Russell was unable to participate in SQ2 due to a hydraulic problem, while Lewis Hamilton was eliminated in SQ1, putting them in P15 and P18 respectively.

The starting grid below is provisional until confirmed by F1's governing body, the FIA.
