The start of Saturday’s Belgian Grand Prix Sprint Race has been pushed back by 35 minutes.

It is now scheduled to begin at 17:05, rather than 16:30, due to the start of Sprint Shootout being delayed by adverse weather.

Heavy rain began to fall during the build-up to the Sprint Shootout, which was meant to begin at 12:00, and the session was delayed by 35 minutes.

Per Formula 1’s regulations there is a fixed window of 4.5 hours between the start of Sprint Shootout and the start of the Sprint Race.

Because Sprint Shootout began at 12:35 it means the Sprint Race is scheduled to begin at 17:05.

The Sprint Race is due to take place across 15 laps of Spa-Francorchamps.
