Session times for 2023 F1 Bahrain GP

Find out when the 2023 Bahrain GP takes place, including the F1 session times for practice, qualifying and the race


The wait is almost over as the 2023 F1 season is almost upon us with the 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix, so make sure you know all of the session times for the first Formula 1 event of the campaign. 

The 2023 F1 Bahrain Grand Prix will be held at the Bahrain international Circuit, a 5.4km track designed by Hermann Tilke, over the weekend of March 3-5, 2023.

Current F1 champions Red Bull look like they are the team to beat after F1 testing, with Ferrari again their closest rivals, as Max Verstappen aims to make it three drivers’ titles in succession. 

Mercedes, although they have addressed many of their issues from last season, could face a challenge to remain in the top three from a resurgent Aston Martin

The Bahrain GP is a 57 lap race with Charles Leclerc leading a Ferrari one-two in the 2022 edition.
