  1. While I wish the Saudi Arabian GP started two hours earlier so that it’d have an Abu Dhabi GP (& Bahrain testing) backdrop, at the very least, I hope the Friday & Saturday timings would be something like the following:
    FP1: 18:00-19:00, FP2: 21:30-22:30
    FP3: 18:00-19:00, QLF: 21:00
    This way, FP1 & 3 would get that backdrop & be even more useful for QLF & race data, even though SA GP FP1 & 3 are already more useful than comparatively Bahrain or Abu Dhabi GP equivalent sessions.
    Additionally, the returned tradition of having 2h30min between standard format Friday sessions would remain, with the Saturday session gap being the previous norm of 2h for this event & the above Middle Eastern events with a similarly structured schedule.

  2. Are those times correct (UK and USA)?
    Did UK skip daylight savings spring ahead? Thats what it looks like.

    1. @David Yes, they’re correct, & UK’s (or Europe’s for that matter) shift occurs on the last March Sunday.

      1. So the UK times are correct and the USA (Eastern) times are an hour early (at least no one will be late). UK is currently a four hour difference from New York, not the usual five.

        1. @David Yes, because the US & Canada have their spring shift two weeks earlier than Europe & Mexico.
          Coincidently, timeanddate is a website I’ve used frequently for a long time, mainly for sunset times.

  3. morning @keithcollantine – any chance of these being pinned posts in the run up to each race, It is a useful feature – and its good that they come out a few days in advance – but they disappear quickly with new stories appearing.

    Maybe pin each race’s time on the menu bar for the week prior to the race it’s self?

    Just a thought.

    There is a big difference between the software and hardware.
