How To Prepare For The Formula 1 2023 Season?

The Racing Trend team is delighted to share with you the Formula 1 passion and to share its own secrets on how to get closer to the race. Let’s begin with the order.
Starting the Formula 1 car’s engine is the first call of the 2023 season. Though the event in most cases is private, race fans will be able to see the launching of the F1 cars, which signifies the countdown has begun.
F1 car launches 2023 dates
Remarkable that Haas F1 had been delaying their car launch dates. The team will reveal the car first, on the 31st of January.
|February 3||Red Bull||RB19||New York|
|February 7||Alfa Romeo||C43||Zurich|
|February 11||AlphaTauri||AT04||New York|
|February 13||Aston Martin||AMR23||Silverstone|
|February 13||McLaren||MCL37||McLaren Technology Centre|
|February 14||Ferrari||F1-76 (TBC)||TBC|
The Most Anticipated F1 Car Launches of 2023
The car launch shows in Formula 1 have stars. According to predictions, Red Bull’s RB19 will be the most powerful car among the others and will be the star of the car launches. Remarkable that the team decided New York as the car launch location, which means the show is promised! Red Bull’s younger sister AlphaTauri presents AT04 at the same destination.
Scuderia Ferrari, which has kept details secret for the second year in a row, will also present the most luxurious car. However, Formula 1 is not about beauty, it’s about speed. A heated argument rages as the team realizes there is no way to repeat the failures of 2022. The brilliant start and fascinating speed of the F1-75 were no match for the fast and reliable Red Bull RB 18.
Mercedes rounded out the top three of the most anticipated F1 car launches in 2023. There are no possible outcomes in the W14 case, as this car got used to us wondering in both directions. Possibly, they have fixed all of the car bouncing problems and now Mercedes will be back to its former glory with the W14. It’s correct, as is the following assumption. It’s possible that the lack of pace for the whole year affected their performance, and overcoming it wouldn’t be easy. Both theories are right.
Therefore, all F1 car launches in 2023 are scheduled for the first half of February. We do not have much time to rest as it is important to remember who is who in the new Formula 1 season in 2023. Furthermore, there are significant changes in the driver’s line-up.

F1 drivers line-up 2023 outline
The driver line up for the Formula 1 2023 season has changed, due to some drivers switching teams, rather than seeing fresh faces joining the main grid.
Thus, there are three rookie F1 drivers in 2023 and that will bring noise.
Following the scandalous story and announcement, Oscar Piastri has joined McLaren and promises a good start as Lando Norris’ teammate.
Nyck de Vries is another rising star. Talented, fast and highly recommended by Mercedes, what could be better than debuting in Formula 1? Nyck de Vries has reasonable chances of starting well at AlphaTauri as Yuki Tsunoda’s teammate. The lucky ticket no less.
Logan Sargeant, the new F1 driver for 2023, does not have the same cards in his pocket. He joined the Williams F1 team as Alex Albon’s teammate.
Another great news is that Nico Hulkenberg is finally back in Formula 1. It is difficult to remember every detail of what he was doing all the time. He’s been a Mercedes reserve driver as well, as well as Racing Point (Aston Martin). The spice of this contract is that Hulkenberg has very different relations with Kevin Magnussen. However, they promised to behave themselves. This will be a real headache for team principal Guenther Steiner.
Red Bull, Ferrari, Mercedes and Alfa Romeo kept the same driver line up.
Pierre Gasly and Fernando Alonso made significant moves. Gasly finally left AlphaTauri. Fernando Alonso also occupied the vacant seat immediately after Sebastien Vettel retired from Formula 1.
Who is leaving F1 in 2023?
As a result, Sebastian Vettel left Formula 1 as well as Nicholas Latifi. As a result, both Mick Schumacher and Daniel Ricciardo have lost their main seats and are now reserve drivers. Schumacher is with Mercedes, while Ricciardo is with Red Bull.
Besides, Mattia Binotto left the role of Ferrari team principal.
F1 team principals 2023.
Therefore, former Alfa Romeo team principal Fred Vasseur took his place. While Alessandro Alunni Bravi became Alfa Romeo’s team principal for the 2023 season.
Andrea Stella has also taken on new duties and a new call. The former race manager of Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso joined McLaren to replace Andreas Seidl as team principal.
Former Mercedes AMG Petronas chief strategist James Vowles has joined Williams as the new team principal.
The 2023 season will see changes not only to the switching and replacement inside Formula 1, but also to the sport’s regulations.
F1 testing 2023 dates
Time passes by while you try to solve the puzzle of who is who in Formula 1 and why it happened. F1 pre-season testing is already underway.
From 23-25 February, F1 preseason testing 2023 begins in Bahrain, leaving us without a way to make out the F1 cart before the first race. Three days of eight hours: four hours in the morning and four hours in the afternoon. All drivers, including reserves, will test the F1 cars 2023.
Have fun with “Drive to Survive”
Netflix will release the fifth season of the Drive to Survive series on the 24th of February. Moreover, they promise to include never-before-seen footage and interviews with the greatest drivers on the Formula 1 grid

From that point on, it will only be a week before the first race of Formula 1 2023. Thus, the F1 2023 season starts on 5th March in Bahrain at Sakhir International Circuit and finishes on November 26 in Abu Dhabi.
In spite of the previously announced 24-race F1 calendar 2023, the Chinese Grand Prix originally scheduled for April was removed from the schedule due to continuing difficulties created by COVID-19.
Well, to sum up, it’s just a few days before the start!
