Your Ultimate Guide to the 2023 F1 Season – Everything You Need to Know about Teams, Drivers, Rules, and Race Calendar

With Red Bull and Ferrari expected to contend for the championship again, will Mercedes be able to bounce back and rejoin the battle for the top spots on the grid after their struggles in the 2022 season?

Despite a dominant run of success, winning eight consecutive Constructors’ World Championships and seven of the last eight Drivers’ titles, Mercedes had a difficult season in 2022 with issues related to the car’s balance and difficulty adapting to new regulations.

But Mercedes have since made progress and improvements, raising hopes for Lewis Hamilton and George Russell for a strong comeback in 2023 season.

There will be a lot of focus on Aston Martin as Fernando Alonso joins to replace the retiring Sebastian Vettel. Will teams like Aston Martin, McLaren, and Alpine be able to narrow the gap to the front-runners? And will Williams be able to improve their performance after another challenging season?

There will be no new teams entering F1 in 2023, but Porsche continues to investigate the possibility of joining the sport, despite the collapse of their talks with Red Bull. Audi has announced its entry for 2026 and Andretti have also expressed their interest in joining the F1 grid in future seasons.

F1 2023 Rules 

F1 will continue to use the new-generation cars that were introduced in the last season, which features the latest aerodynamic designs and other technological advancements.


Due to safety concerns raised by the porpoising issues encountered with the 2022 cars, the FIA has introduced new technical regulations to address the problem. The new rules will aim to improve the stability of the cars on the track.

To address the porpoising issues, the FIA will increase the height of the car’s floor edges by 15mm, raise the diffuser’s throat, and make the lateral floor deflection tests more strict. These changes are expected to enhance the stability of the car on the track and improve safety.

Despite some teams expressing opposition to the changes, the FIA’s new regulations were approved by the World Motor Sport Council on Wednesday, August 16th. The new rules will be implemented for the 2023 season, in an effort to improve safety and stability of the cars on the track.

The F1 2023 season will include six sprint events, a significant increase from the three held in 2021 and 2022. This decision was made by the FIA in late September, with the intention of bringing more excitement and variety to the championship

At two of the race weekends in 2023, the number of sets of tires available to drivers will be reduced from 13 to 11. This is part of the FIA’s initiative to reduce the number of tires used over the course of a Grand Prix weekend, and it will be trialled at two as yet unnamed events in the upcoming F1 2023 season.

In addition to reducing the number of sets of tires, the FIA will also mandate the tire compound choice for each session of the qualifying. Drivers will be required to use the hard compound tire in Q1, the medium compound tire in Q2, and the soft compound tire in Q3. This is expected to add an extra layer of strategy to the qualifying sessions and to create a more exciting racing experience.
