Formula 1, a single-seater open-wheeled motorsport where currently 10 teams compete with two drivers per team, is coming back as the first grand prix of the year 2023 takes place in Bahrain on March 5. The pre-season testing from February 23 to February 25 had every F1 team participating with their newly developed cars, having a look at the rest of the competition, and making final changes before the season starts. This pre-season testing was carried out in Bahrain. Red Bull, with its 2023 challenger, RB19, was at the top of the reports after the first day of testing, while Fernando Alonso who drives for the Aston Martin F1 team, completed the most laps than any other driver on the grid.
The 2023 F1 calendar consists of 23 Grand Prix around the globe, starting in Bahrain and having its final GP in Abu Dhabi in late November. Fans in the U.S. are in for a treat this year, as there is a total of three GPs held in the U.S. - the United States GP at Circuit of the Americas in Texas, along with newly added circuits in the form of the Las Vegas GP and the Miami GP. These new circuits are highly anticipated. Miami GP will be the first GP to take place in the U.S. according to the 2023 F1 calendar, followed by the United States GP and lastly the Las Vegas GP. These three circuits will give Logan Sargeant – the only American rookie on the grid, an opportunity to make his fellow citizens proud.
There are a lot of changes this year right from new cost cap rules to new principals for some F1 teams to new drivers. This is sure to make the competition more challenging and equal for all the teams, and a great year of racing for fans.
