The lineup for the upcoming season of the Formula One World Championship has been finalized, and some teams have added new drivers to their lineups. There have been some significant departures from the paddock, but there have also been some new arrivals who have the potential to shake off the entire World Championship. The whole roster of Formula One drivers for the 2023 season is presented here without further ado.
F1-2023 drivers: the complete list
According to the hard law of Formula One, there are those who go and those who enter. In 2023, the sport will also see some new faces take to the track to replace those who had to greet the most significant stage of motorsport. Before getting into the details of the season’s happenings, let’s take a look at the whole list of Formula 1 drivers for the year by going through it team by team.
F1 2023 lineup: what’s new?
There are six new additions to the 2023 Formula 1 lineup: McLaren, Alpine, Aston Martin, Haas, Alpha Turi, and Williams. On the other hand, the first three teams from last season have kept the same lineups, which should also keep the internal rankings the same.
Oscar Piastri has arrived at McLaren following the chaos that saw him ready to get on the new Alpine following Fernando Alonso’s departure. There is nothing to do, however, because the Australian team will compete together with the British team to help them return to at least the top three in the constructors’ championship. It will be a difficult task, but not impossible for a team that has achieved great results in the past. Piastri, who is the youngest driver in the lineup, replaces another Australian: the departing Daniel Ricciardo, who has moved to Red Bull to be the third driver.
In Alpine, however, there is Pierre Gasly, who will form an all-French team with Esteban Ocon. A fantastic opportunity for the former Alpha Tauri, who will be driving a single-seater that is undoubtedly more capable than the one he drove last year. For him, it will be an excellent opportunity to return and compete for points consistently every weekend.
Two well-known pilots, Fernando Alonso and Nico Hulkenberg, join Aston Martin and Haas. The Spaniard will have the tough task of replacing an important figure for Formula 1 like Sebastian Vettel, but his resume already speaks for itself, so he won’t have many problems in this respect. The German, on the other hand, took the place of Mick Schumacher, who ended up behind the Mercedes as the third driver. The American team, with its drivers, has chosen to focus on experience.
The two new additions, Alpha Tauri and Williams, complete the lineup. The former team up with Yuki Tsunoda and the young and talented Nick de Vries, who already proved his worth in Williams last season by replacing Albon. The Dutchman immediately scored points on the first opportunity he had, and it cannot be ruled out that in 2023 he should be able to overtake the Japanese in the hierarchy of the team. Logan Sargeant is instead the new face of Williams, which has chosen to focus on him to replace the Canadian Nicholas Latifi.
