Session times for the 2023 F1 Azerbaijan GP

The 2023 Azerbaijan GP is set to have a new F1 weekend format


After an extended break, F1 is back with the 2023 Azerbaijan GP and with a new format being introduced in Baku, make sure you know all of the F1 session times for the action at the Baku City Circuit.

Baku has been on the F1 calendar since 2016 and mixes both long straights with a tight old town section which skirts the city’s medieval walls as it covers just over 6km in length. 

The 2023 Azerbaijan GP will take place on the weekend of April 28-April 30 and will be a 51 lap race. 

Red Bull have dominated the 2023 F1 season so far, finishing first and second in the opening two races, with Max Verstappen then adding a third win in Australia. 

Their closest challenger has been Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin, but Mercedes took something of a leap forward in terms of performance Down Under with Lewis Hamilton coming in second.
