What time do F1 races start in 2023?

The season-opener in Bahrain is on March 5th, with lights out planned for 15:00 UK time, or 12:00 Eastern Time.

Races in Europe will begin at 14:00 local CET time throughout the season, with the exception of the British Grand Prix, which is a 15:00 start.

Events in Australia and Japan are both set to be early starts for those in Europe or America with 06:00 UK starts scheduled.

There are also set to be three Grands Prix in America, with Miami set for a 20:30 UK start and the United States Grand Prix at Austin 20:00 UK.

The final and third Grand Prix on American soil is in Las Vegas on November 18th - a Saturday night and the first race not held on a Sunday since the 1985 South African Grand Prix.

Lights out in Vegas is planned for a 06:00 UK start time on Sunday morning, but due to the time differences involved, it will be a 22:00 local start in Nevada - in prime time.

That is a 01:00 start on the East coast.

The season-finale in Abu Dhabi is set for a 13:00 UK start.
