Belgian Grand Prix 2023

Starting grid for the 2023 F1 Belgian Grand Prix Sprint

Here is the starting grid for the 2023 Formula 1 Belgian Sprint, which will be held at Spa-Francorchamps

It's Max Verstappen who will lead the field to green in this afternoon's Belgian Grand Prix Sprint race at Spa-Francorchamps - but only just.

With the very last lap of Sprint Shootout Qualifying, Verstappen pipped McLaren's Oscar Piastri by just 0.011s to earn a second Sprint pole of the season, following on from Austria.

Belgian GP pole-sitter Charles Leclerc is fourth after a mistake on his final lap, with Lewis Hamilton set for seventh after a squabble with Mercedes teammate George Russell on his final lap cost him time.

Below is the starting grid for this afternoon's Sprint race at Spa, which will be delayed owing to the 35-minute rain delay that started the session. It is due to start at 17:05 local time.
