Formula 1 heads to Spa-Francorchamps for the Belgian GP this weekend and the final race before its four-week summer break – and you can watch all the action live on Sky Sports F1.

And it is another Sprint weekend – the third of the 2023 season – so Qualifying for the Grand Prix will take place on Friday afternoon, before the Sprint Shootout and Sprint on Saturday and then the main Belgian Grand Prix at 2pm Sunday.

Max Verstappen could become just the second driver in F1 history, after Sebastian Vettel, to win eight consecutive races.

The Dutchman overtook Lewis Hamilton to claim his seventh win in a row at last weekend’s Hungarian GP to extend his world championship lead to 110 points.

And Red Bull will be seeking to round off an unbeaten first half of the season and extend their record-breaking win streak to 13 races.
