The Azerbaijan Grand Prix is the first Sprint event of the 2023 F1 season, and there have been some changes to the standard weekend schedule.

Instead of qualifying taking place on a Saturday, the one-hour session setting the grid order for Sunday's Grand Prix instead happened on Friday.

A separate qualifying session, dubbed the Sprint Shootout, will replace FP2 on Saturday morning to set the grid order for the 17-lap Sprint later that day.
