F1 2023 Japanese GP Schedule

The 2023 Formula 1 season continues with the Japanese Grand Prix from Suzuka


The Japanese Grand Prix will host the 17th round of the 2023 Formula 1 season. Find out the session times for the event at Suzuka, where all eyes will be on whether Red Bull can return to winning ways.

Suzuka has been hosting F1 races since 1987 and is one of the most loved tracks on the calendar due to its high-speed corners and undulating terrain. The 2023 Japanese GP takes place on the weekend of September 22-24 and will be a 53-lap race.

Carlos Sainz ended Red Bull‘s unbeaten run in 2023 with a superb performance last time out in Singapore but Max Verstappen is confident he can hit back at Suzuka.

Red Bull can secure the constructors’ championship this Sunday if they outscore Mercedes by one point or more and are not outscored by Ferrari by 24 points or more.

When is the 2023 Japanese GP?

The 2023 Japanese GP will take place at Suzuka, which is Honda‘s home circuit and often sees wet weather being a factor during the weekend. Qualifying is scheduled for 07:00 UK time on Saturday and the race at 06:00 on Sunday.
