2021 F1 Grand Prix start times

Published on 01 February 2021 by Stefan Meens

The start times for each of the confirmed races on the 2021 F1 calendar have been revealed, with Grands Prix once again starting on the hour instead of ten minutes past, as was the case last year.

Other changes to the timing format include both FP1 and FP2 from this season onwards being reduced to 60 minutes each – the same as Saturday's FP3 session.
