Formula 1 has revealed its race weekend schedule for the 2020 season, which includes the start time of the British Grand Prix being moved back an hour compared to 2019.
The start time of the Silverstone race was set at 2.10pm last year, and allowing for the time difference between BST and CET that brought it in line with 3.10pm start times in the rest of Europe - to help TV companies maintain a consistent weekend schedule.
But it has now been moved back to 3.10pm, which means the British GP timetable will be the same as other European races for those working at the track, but an hour later for anyone watching on TV outside the UK.
The practice and qualifying sessions on Friday and Saturday have also been shifted to bring them into line with the normal European schedule.
The start of the US Grand Prix at Austin in October has also been moved back an hour, from 1.10pm to 2.10pm.
No other start times have changed relative to 2019, but some sessions have been altered.
The timetable for the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka has not yet been announced, and according to F1 will be confirmed "in the next few weeks".
The two new races in Vietnam and the Netherlands will start at 2.10pm and 3.10pm local time respectively.
