Formula One 2023 Team and Driver Lineup


Justin Byers, Author

With only a few months until March and China recently announcing that it has been canceled for the 3rd straight year, the F1 teams have finally announced their full lineup for 2023.

Red Bull

Max Verstappen – #1
Sergio Perez – #11

Last year’s champions will keep their lineup with their reining champion keeping the number 1 on his car for 2023.


Charles Leclerc – #16
Carlos Sainz — #55

Ferrari is continuing with the same line-up for a third straight season. They started well in 2022 before their challenge faded, but now have two proven race winners in their ranks thanks to Sainz’s 2022 triumph at Silverstone.


Lewis Hamilton – #44
George Russell – #63

It’s more of the same at Mercedes as well, as the Silver Arrows look to bounce back from a disappointing campaign in 2022. It was the first season in his career that Hamilton failed to either get a pole or a victory, but Russell managed both and is well-placed to build on that experience in 2023.


Pierre Gasly — #10
Esteban Ocon – #31

Alonso has departed for new pastures, leaving Gasly to come into his seat at Alpine and join an all-French line-up alongside Ocon.


Lando Norris – #4
Oscar Piastri – TBC

Norris begins his fifth season at McLaren alongside a rookie in Piastri. The Australian is hot property, with McLaren securing his services over Alpine after their legal dispute over contracts.

Alfa Romeo

Zhou Guanyu — #24
Valtteri Bottas – #77

A strong start for Alfa Romeo in 2022 helped to net them sixth in the championship, despite running an all-new driver pairing. That duo continues for 2023.

Aston Martin

Fernando Alonso – #14
Lance Stroll — #18

Stroll is still at Aston Martin, but has replaced one experienced teammate for another. The Canadian now has to go toe-to-toe with two-time world champion Alonso, who swapped blue for the green in 2023 and replaced the retired 4-time F1 champion in Sebastian Vettel.


Kevin Magnussen – #20
Nico Hulkenberg – #27

It’s a pairing that had many tongues wagging when first announced, with perennial ‘super sub’ Hulkenberg making a return to a full-time F1 drive after sitting out the past three seasons. He joins Magnussen at Haas, the Dane himself a bit of a comeback king. Haas is banking on experience to get them up the order in 2023, after managing to come home a much-improved eighth in 2022, with a pole position to their name to boot.


Yuki Tsunoda – #22
Nyck de Vries — TBC

It’s time for Tsunoda to step up as team leader in his third season in F1, with the experience of Gasly having left for Alpine. The Japanese racer is joined by a rookie in De Vries, who comes highly rated from the Mercedes family.


Alex Albon – #23
Logan Sargeant — TBC

Albon remains at Williams for 2023, but he has a new teammate to guide in the form of American rookie Sargeant, who got the nod after picking up the required number of Super Licence points with a stellar rookie performance in the F2 championship.

The season opens on March 3rd in Bahrain. Get excited Canes! This will be a great season!
