Driver press conferences will take place on Thursdays starting from the British Grand Prix, subject to the FIA World Motor Sport Council approval.

In 2022, driver press conferences took place on Fridays before the start of FP1. However, it is likely to be changed.

The conferences will be moved back to Thursdays and will occur 23 hours before the beginning of FP1.

The changes imply that 10 drivers will be split into two groups in separate 30-minute sessions. The other drivers will have to participate in sessions organized by their teams the same day.

The modification is yet to be approved by the FIA World Motor Sport Council, but it is expected to happen in the near future.
