The session times for the 2020 Formula 1 season have been confirmed, with new events in Vietnam and the Netherlands falling in line with other races.

F1 confirmed its 22-race calendar at the end of August, adding races in Hanoi and Zandvoort to the schedule, with the new season due to start in Melbourne on March 15.

In an updated statement issued by F1 on Friday, series officials confirmed the timeslots for all practice, qualifying and race sessions through the season, which is unchanged from previous years.

Vietnam will follow the rubric set out for the majority of other races, staging FP1 at 11am on Friday and FP2 at 3pm.

Final practice in Hanoi will run at midday on Saturday ahead of qualifying at 3pm, with the race start time set for 2:10pm on Sunday. With sunset not until 6:12pm, no issues over light levels are anticipated.

F1’s return to Zandvoort will see the Dutch Grand Prix follow the same layout as the other European events, with the race starting at 3:10pm on May 3.

The British Grand Prix had previously run its schedule one hour earlier than its European counterparts, but has shifted its session times to fall in line with the other events.

Other tweaks include a one-hour shift later for Friday’s running in China, Canada and Mexico, while the United States Grand Prix will start one hour later on raceday.

The schedule for the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka remains TBA, but is due to be confirmed in the near future.
