Max Verstappen will look to defend his second World Championship title when the 2023 Formula 1 season gets under way next month.
The 2023 season will see a significant change in technical regulations over last year. Ride height and diffusers have to be adjusted to avoid porpoising, where the driver feels a violent bouncing at high speeds, stronger roll hoops must be fitted to stop an overturned car digging into the ground and minimum weight has been reduced from 798kg to 796kg, to name but a few.
New drivers for this season can be seen in the cockpit to go with updated regulations. Fernando Alonso made the move to Aston Martin following Sebastian Vettel's retirement at the end of 2022, with Pierre Gasly joining Esteban Ocon at Alpine and Oscar Piastri moving to McLaren as Daniel Ricciardo's replacement.
Logan Sergeant will make his F1 debut at Williams after securing enough FIA superlicence points to join the fabled grid. He is joined by Anglo-Thai Alex Albon who is heading into his second season with the team.
Between now and the first Grand Prix in Bahrain on 5 March, drivers will be getting used to their teams and new cars for the 2023 season, which are all set to be unveiled over the coming days.
Here are the 10 new cars that have already been revealed and news of when you can expect the rest.
Alfa Romeo C43
The C43 will be the last Sauber-engineered car to carry an Alfa Romeo badge, the branding deal ending ahead of Audi taking over. Launched in Zurich and touted as the most beautiful car on the grid, the C43 uses a 1.6-litre turbocharged narrow-angle V6 and electric motor developed by Ferrari. Like last year’s C42, it will be driven by Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu.
