Belgian Grand Prix 2023

When does the 2023 F1 Belgian GP Sprint race start?

The third F1 Sprint of 2023 will take place ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix. Here are all the important timings you need to know.

Formula 1 welcomes its third Sprint race of 2023 ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix at the Circuit Spa-Francorchamps.

A change to the running order this year sees the Sprint now standing alone – rather than deciding the grid for Sunday's Grand Prix – and the starting order will be set in the Sprint Shootout earlier on Saturday.

That session is scheduled to start at 12:00 local time (11:00 BST) on Saturday.

This will be followed by the 15-lap Sprint, which begins at 16:30 local time (15:30 BST), while Sunday's Grand Prix is set to start at 15:00 local time (14:00 BST) and run for 44 laps.
