F1 2023 Azerbaijan GP – Practice 1 results

Max Verstappen topped the timesheets for FP1 at the 2023 Azerbaijan GP in Baku


Max Verstappen continued his rich run of form with the quickest time in the only practice session for the 2023 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Verstappen was pushed all the way by Charles Leclerc and teammate Sergio Perez with Carlos Sainz fourth fastest ahead of Lando Norris in the ever-improving McLaren.

Nyck de Vries had a fine start to the weekend with the sixth fastest time ahead of Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso. Alex Albon and Zhou Guanyu rounded off the top 10.

Yuki Tsunoda and Pierre Gasly had their running cut due to incidents during the session, with the former having to end his session early because of an overheating issue bringing out the red flag.

Kevin Magnussen too also had his session end prematurely after losing fuel pressure at Turn 1.
