F1 Japanese GP 2023: Updated timings and schedule
After Carlos Sainz’s victory at the Singapore GP, which marked the end of Red Bull and Max Verstappen’s winning streak, the Dutch driver now returns to the very circuit where he secured his 2022 world championship title. After ending a 14-month wait for another race win, Ferrari goes in search of back-to-back race victories and three poles in a row.
In this race, all eyes will be on Red Bull to determine whether the last race performance was only an exception in 2023 or an end to the RB19 dominance in motorsport.
In another part of the racing landscape, George Russell aims to bounce back from his devastating last-lap collision at the Marina Bay circuit, which cost him a seemingly guaranteed podium finish. Meanwhile, his Mercedes team, alongside competitors such as McLaren and Aston Martin, are also setting their sights on claiming the coveted top positions.
Now, we’ll take a closer look at the updated schedule for the Japanese Grand Prix:
