What time does the 2021 F1 Belgian GP start?

After a few weeks of rest and relaxation, the 2021 F1 season resumes with Red Bull looking to hit back against Mercedes at the Belgian Grand Prix.

The final few races before the summer break weren't kind to the Milton Keynes outfit, as they now find themselves trailing Mercedes in the Constructors' standings while Max Verstappen sits eight points behind Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers' table.

That's because the Briton managed to work his way through the field last time out and finish second behind first-time winner Esteban Ocon in Hungary, while Verstappen could only muster a ninth-place finish after damage suffered early on derailed his race.

Both drivers will be keen to add another victory to their tally this weekend at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, a race that's been known to throw up a few surprises along with unpredictable weather.

When is the Belgian Grand Prix?

The Belgian Grand Prix will be held on August 29 around the 7.004km Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. The race weekend will follow a traditional format with qualifying taking place on Saturday ahead of Sunday's race.
