What time is the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix and how can I watch it?

DOHA, QATAR - NOVEMBER 21: Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain driving the (44) Mercedes AMG Petronas

The drivers are getting set for another Sprint weekend, this time at the Lusail International Circuit ahead of what is set to be an exciting three days of action at the Qatar Grand Prix. Here is what time you can watch the weekend's events unfold.

Max Verstappen only needs to outscore his Red Bull team mate Sergio Perez by three points to become a three-time world champion this weekend, meaning the Dutch driver could take the title on Saturday in the Sprint.

Last time we raced in Qatar it was back in 2021, when Lewis Hamilton took a dominant victory ahead of Verstappen and Fernando Alonso. He will be hoping to repeat that same trick this weekend, but the likes of Ferrari, McLaren, and Aston Martin will also be eyeing a Red Bull upset.

The action in Lusail gets going with FP1 and Qualifying on Friday, October 6, ahead of the Sprint Shootout and the 100KM dash on Saturday, October 7, with the the Qatar Grand Prix itself on Sunday, October 8.
