Session times for the 2023 F1 Spanish GP

The 2023 Spanish GP is set to provide one of the most exciting qualifying sessions of the season


The Spanish Grand Prix will host the seventh round of the 2023 Formula 1 season. Find out the session times for the event at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Max Verstappen‘s victory at the Monaco GP, coupled with Sergio Perez‘s failure to score points, puts the Dutchman 39 points ahead of his teammate.

Fernando Alonso is another 12 points behind and will be racing on home soil this weekend, as will Ferrari‘s Carlos Sainz, who had a frustrating Sunday in Monaco.

In February, Spanish GP organisers announced F1 will revert to the pre-2007 layout of two fast right-handers ending the lap, rather than the slow-speed chicane. It was a decision fans and drivers praised.

When is the 2023 Spanish GP?

The 2023 Spanish GP will take place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, which has hosted the event since 1991.

Qualifying is scheduled for 15:00 UK time on Saturday and the Spanish GP GP at 14:00 on Sunday.
