Formula 1 reveals 2019 race start times

Formula 1 has revealed the full schedule for the 2019 season, which will stick to the slightly later start times introduced last year.

Formula 1 reveals 2019 race start times

For 2018, F1 shifted each part of the weekend schedule back by one hour, moving European races away from their traditional 2pm start time.

Every grand prix also started at 10 minutes past the hour to aid commercial television channel coverage.

F1 has revealed that the 2019 schedule will follow the same pattern.

The main change is the French Grand Prix moving forward one hour, to start at 3.10pm.

That brings it in line with other European races, having started one hour later in 2018 to avoid a clash with an England FIFA World Cup game.

Max Verstappen’s star quality in Formula 1 is clear. Now equipped with a Red Bull car that is, right now, the world title favourite and the experience to support his talent, could 2021 be the Dutchman’s year to topple the dominant force of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes?

Nikita Mazepin’s Formula 1 debut at the Bahrain Grand Prix lasted mere corners before he wiped himself out in a shunt, but his financial backing affords him a full season. Back in 1993 though, Marco Apicella was an F1 driver for just 800m before a first corner fracas ended his career. Here’s the story of his very short time at motorsport’s pinnacle.
