United States Grand Prix 2021

Schedule for the 2021 United States GP

Here's the full weekend time schedule for the United States Grand Prix, which will take place from 22-24 October, as the 2021 F1 season continues.

Formula 1 returns to the United States following last year's cancellation, with Max Verstappen leading Lewis Hamilton by just six points in the standings.

Neither driver took the chequered flag last time out in Turkey, however, as Valtteri Bottas converted his pole position into his first win of the season. Verstappen managed to finish second, while Hamilton had to settle for fifth after serving a 10-place grid penalty.

With no race taking place at the Circuit of the Americas last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are some question marks heading into the weekend due to parts of the track being resurfaced since F1 last visited in 2019.

The weekend will follow the usual format, but note the times, given that the race will take place in the United States. Friday will feature two 60-minute practice sessions, with FP1 scheduled for 17:30 UK time and FP2 following at 21:00.

FP3 will begin at 19:00 on Saturday, with qualifying and the battle for pole going ahead at 22:00. This will determine the grid for Sunday's United States Grand Prix, which starts at 22:00.

RacingNews365.com will be on hand to cover all of the action and you can find our live blog here. We will also have exclusive interviews, news and analysis throughout the entire weekend in the United States.
