Spanish Grand Prix 2023

Revised starting grid for the 2023 F1 Spanish GP after penalties

Max Verstappen will start the Spanish GP from pole for the first time in his career. Here is the provisional starting grid for the 2023 F1 Spanish Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen will start the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix from pole position, putting him at the front of a surprising grid.

Carlos Sainz joins the Red Bull driver on the front row, while Lando Norris impressed to seal P3.

Many rivals disappointed during qualifying, making the starting line-up look different from what we are used to. Fernando Alonso (8th) and Sergio Perez (11th) fared badly, while George Russell (12th) and Charles Leclerc (19th) also experienced a very poor qualifying session.

Pierre Gasly initially claimed a strong fourth place, but was dropped back to 10th after receiving two three-place grid penalties for impeding other drivers during qualifying.

Meanwhile Charles Leclerc will start from the pit lane after a disastrous session saw him qualify in P19. Logan Sargeant also starts from the pits.
