F1 Practice Today: Spanish Grand Prix 2023 start times, schedule and TV

F1 practice continues on Saturday at the Spanish Grand Prix with the final two sessions ahead of Sunday's showdown at the Circuit de Catalunya.

There was little surprise on Friday as Max Verstappen dominated for Red Bull going faster than his team-mate Sergio Perez in FP1 before edging out home favourite Fernando Alonso in FP2.

With the installation of the fast final right hander back to the track though, many drivers saw the old problem of porpoising during Friday's action.

Elsewhere, Mercedes showed little sign of their upgrades working that were introduced in Monaco, floundering in the midfield.

The surprise package of the day was Nico Hulkenberg who ended Friday third fastest for Haas.

Today we continue with the final free practice session - FP3 - followed by Qualifying to set the grid for Sunday's huge race.
