Japanese Grand Prix schedule | Very early start for European fans!

18 September - 08:37

The Japanese Grand Prix is next on the schedule, bringing a very different schedule to the European races. The 2023 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit will take place on Sunday, September 24, at 06:00 BST. It will be the 16th race in the 2023 Formula 1 season and is on one of the most loved tracks by drivers and fans.

Verstappen and Red Bull Racing have had their winning streak ended. Carlos Sainz won the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix as Red Bull sat in the midfield. All eyes will be on Red Bull this weekend. Will they return to form? Will they win the Constructors Championship? Or will Ferrari, Mercedes and McLaren continue to close the gap? 

When will the drivers be in action?

The Japanese Grand Prix weekend will see the traditional format of Formula 1. Two practice sessions will take place on Friday, with a third on Saturday. Qualifying will occur on Saturday morning in the UK, and the race will occur on Sunday, September 24, at 14:00 local time (06:00 BST).
