What time does the F1 Canadian Grand Prix 2023 start?

All the details for the start of the 2023 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal


The 2023 Formula 1 season moves across the Atlantic Ocean for the Canadian Grand Prix, so for those of you in the UK, USA and Australia, make make sure you know the start time of the 2023 Canadian GP from the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. 

Max Verstappen took his fifth victory of the 2023 F1 season in Barcelona which gives the Red Bull driver a 53-point lead over this teammate Checo Perez in the Driver Standings. With the Dutchman threatening to run away with this season’s drivers’ championship, the Mexican is in need of a positive result from Canada. 

Mercedes will be looking to build on their strong showing in Spain, where they bagged a double podium, as their fight with Aston Martin in the Constructor Standings intensifies. Fernando Alonso has already issued a warning to the Silver Arrows for the 2023 Canadian GP. 

The 2023 Canadian GP is due to start at 2pm local time in Montreal, which is 7pm for those fans in the UK. F1 fans in the USA will see lights out at 2pm on the east coast, while those in the west have an 11am start. Australians in Melbourne will have an early 4am start on Monday morning if they are to catch the race live.
