2023 Formula One Racers

The line-up for Formula One Racers for 2023

With next season's regulations in place, it will be interesting to see which drivers are able to take advantage and make their mark on the F1 2023 grid.

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez remain unchanged at Red Bull for the third consecutive season. In addition, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell at Mercedes, as well as Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz at Ferrari. This lineup of drivers promises to be one of the most competitive ones in the history of the sport, with all teams poised to fight for the championship title. 

Even so, many changes are happening outside the top three teams, as their driver lineups remain unchanged. With numerous teams fielding brand-new drivers and revised strategies, this season is sure to be an exciting one.

At the end of 2022, Sebastian Vettel retired, leaving a void at Alpine after Fernando Alonso moved to Aston Martin to join Lance Stroll. Lance Stroll joined Formula One in 2017. He made history as the second-youngest driver to start a race and finish on the podium.

To form an all-French connection with Esteban Ocon, Alpine opted for Pierre Gasly from AlphaTauri after the contract saga that saw Oscar Piastri move to McLaren to replace Daniel Ricciardo. Gasly's move to Alpine has seen the creation of an all-French lineup, with the two drivers joining forces to represent the team's home country on the grid.

Logan Sargeant has replaced Nicholas Latifi in Williams' starting lineup. Albon was retained and Latifi was replaced by a rookie. This indicates that Williams has faith in Albon's ability to perform, while also introducing a new talent to the team in Sargeant. Nico Hulkenberg will replace Mick Schumacher as a reserve driver for Haas alongside Kevin Magnussen, now a reserve with Mercedes. This reshuffle of drivers means that the Haas team are hoping that the new combination of Hulkenberg and Magnussen will bring them the success they have been searching for since their debut in 2016.

Even with an all-new driver pairing, Alfa Romeo reached sixth place in the championship in 2022 as a result of a strong start. With Bottas' experience and Zhou's exuberance, that duo will continue into 2023. With the combination of two drivers with different strengths, Alfa Romeo will be looking to build on their strong start and aim for a podium finish in the 2023 championship.
