F1 Belgian GP 2023 Sprint Weekend Schedule

Formula 1 makes its annual appearance at Spa-Francorchamps for the 2023 Belgian Grand Prix, the last race before the summer break


Formula 1 has one last event before the summer break and it’s the third F1 Sprint weekend of the season at the 2023 Belgian Grand Prix, so make sure you know all of the session times for the action at Spa-Francorchamps.

Spa is a classic venue and is one of the four circuits on the 2023 calendar that featured on the original 1950 F1 World Championship schedule – the others being Silverstone, Monza and Monaco.

The 2023 Belgian GP will take place on the weekend of July 28 to 30 and will be a 44-lap race this Sunday

Red Bull have dominated the 2023 F1 season so far, winning every race and broke the record for the most consecutive victories in Hungary as Max Verstappen took his ninth triumph this year.

McLaren were their closest challengers at Silverstone and the Hungaroring, while Mercedes took a surprise pole position in Budapest thanks to Lewis Hamilton‘s stunning Q3 lap.

When is the 2023 Belgian GP?

The 2023 Belgian GP will take place at Spa-Francorchamps but there will be a change to the normal schedule as it’s a sprint weekend.

Friday will see qualifying for the main race scheduled for 16:00 UK time (17:00 local) and the Grand Prix itself at 14:00 UK time (15:00 local) on Sunday. 

Saturday will see another qualifying session, known as the sprint shootout, which will set the grid for the sprint race later in the day, which is at 15:30 UK time (16:30 local).
