2023 F1 season recap

The 2023 Formula 1 season culminated with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, marking a historic year, especially for Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen. Verstappen’s triumph in the championship was confirmed at the Qatar Grand Prix in October, securing his third consecutive title. At just 26, Verstappen’s victory in Abu Dhabi marked his 54th career win, positioning him behind only Michael Schumacher (91 wins) and Lewis Hamilton (103 wins) in the all-time list.

Additionally, Verstappen established two new F1 records this season. He achieved an unprecedented 19 race wins in a single season, surpassing the previous record of 15 wins he set last year. Moreover, he set a record for consecutive wins within a season, with 10 straight victories, eclipsing Sebastian Vettel’s record of nine consecutive wins in 2013 with Red Bull.

Red Bull Racing also set a team record, amassing 860 points in a season. The team’s dominance was evident as a Red Bull driver topped the podium in all but one race this season, the exception being the Singapore Grand Prix won by Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz. This level of dominance is reminiscent of McLaren’s performance in 1988, led by Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna.

While Verstappen led Red Bull’s charge, his teammate Sergio Perez experienced a mix of triumphs and challenges, securing only two wins and finishing second in the Drivers’ standings. Despite showing promise, including victories in Saudi Arabia and Azerbaijan, Perez’s season was marred by qualifying mishaps and race day incidents.

Aston Martin, with Fernando Alonso at the helm, emerged as a strong contender, achieving podium finishes seven times, including second-place finishes in Monaco and the Netherlands. McLaren also surprised many with a significant performance improvement in the latter part of the season, thanks to Lando Norris and rookie Oscar Piastri, who emerged as the most successful rookie driver of the season.

Among other notable developments, Alfa Romeo announced its departure from F1, marking the end of its third stint in the sport. The Sauber team, which represented Alfa Romeo, will continue under its own name and is set to become Audi’s official factory team in 2026.

The final standings for the 2023 F1 season are as follows:

Drivers’ Championship:
