2023 F1 World Championship

Season Summary

The 2023 F1 season was contested over 22 Grand Prix weekends worldwide, starting in March and concluding in November.

The season saw the Las Vegas Grand Prix introduced to the racing calendar in November on a newly constructed street circuit along the Las Vegas Strip. This event marked the return of a Grand Prix to Las Vegas for the first time since the 1981 and 1982 Caesars Palace Grand Prix. The new addition meant a total of three races now feature in the United States for the foreseeable future, another first since 1982.

Sadly, the French Grand Prix was dumped from the 2023 calendar, although its race organisers hope to establish a rotational agreement by sharing its spot with other Grand Prix in Europe. Despite the organisers’ best efforts, the Chinese Grand Prix was cancelled for the fourth consecutive year due to the persistent challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, no replacement was made for this race.

The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix would have extended the championship to 23 races and was slated to take place as the sixth round on May 21st, but it was cancelled on May 17th due to serious flooding in the region.


The 2023 F1 Season saw reigning champion Max Verstappen secure his third straight Drivers’ Championship at the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix. His remarkable drive throughout the season included a historic 19 wins out of the 22 races and 21 podium finishes, setting a new season record for podium appearances. His team, Red Bull Racing, clinched their sixth Constructors’ Championship, and their second in a row, at the previous race in Japan.

Dominating the season, Red Bull Racing claimed victories in 21 of the 22 races. Ferrari was the only other team on the grid to secure a win, with Carlos Sainz triumphing at the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix.

2023 Formula 1 Standings

Points for the 2023 Formula 1 season were allocated to the top ten finishers, along with the driver clocking the fastest lap in the Grand Prix, provided they are among the top ten and to the top eight participants in the Sprint Race. When there’s a tie in points, the tie-breaker involves comparing the number of Grand Prix victories each driver has. If they have the same number of wins, the number of second-place finishes is taken into account, followed by third places, and so on.
