Formula 1 is one of the most popular motorsports events in the world, attracting millions of fans globally. For many of our clients, attending a Formula 1 race is a special experience that they have looked forward to for a long time. Therefore, in this article, we'll showcase what to expect at this year's Grand Prix and how Abeona can assist you in seizing the best possible travel experience.
The Grand Prix 2023
In 2023, there are twenty-three Grands Prix in the sprint format that take place in Azerbaijan, Austria, Belgium, Qatar, the United States and São Paulo. This year, we celebrate the 74th edition of the Formula One World Championship, featuring high-speed races with breathtaking Formula One cars.
Being the highest class of competition for open-wheel racing cars, this championship is recognized by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The FIA is the governing body of international motorsport.
The championship will span a record twenty-three Grands Prix across the world, commencing in March and concluding in November. Respectively, the drivers and teams will compete for the titles of World Constructors' Champion and World Drivers' Champion. Max Verstappen, the driver for Red Bull Racing-Honda RBPT, holds the current title of Drivers' Champion, while his team remains the reigning Constructors' Champion.
Spilling The Tea: Exciting Developments and What To Expect
What is there to know about this year's Grand Prix, and which developments are worth talking about?
After 16 seasons in Formula One, Germany’s Sebastian Vettel retired at the end of the 2022 championship, bringing his career to a close. His seat at Aston Martin was filled by Fernando Alonso, who left Alpine after two seasons.
Alpine initially announced that their 2021 Formula 2 Champion and reserve driver Oscar Piastri would take Alonso's place, but shortly after the announcement, Piastri confirmed that he had not signed a contract for 2023 and would not be joining Alpine. The FIA Contract Recognition Board later ruled that he did not have any contractual obligations to race for Alpine. As a result, Pierre Gasly, who had a contract to drive for AlphaTauri, was brought in to replace Alonso at Alpine. Gasly's place was then taken by Nyck de Vries, the 2020-21 Formula E and 2019 Formula 2 Champion.
Daniel Ricciardo, who had spent two seasons with McLaren, left the team. Although he had a contract to drive for the team in 2023, it was mutually agreed to terminate the contract during the 2022 championship. To fill Ricciardo's seat, Piastri was chosen, making his debut in Formula One.
Nicholas Latifi, who had spent three seasons with Williams, left the team, and Logan Sargeant was brought in to fill his spot. Sargeant made his Formula One debut by graduating from Formula 2, becoming the first American Formula One driver to compete since Alexander Rossi in 2015 with former team Marussia. He was also the first to compete full-time since Scott Speed in 2006 with former team Toro Rosso.
Finally, Mick Schumacher, the son of the GOAT Michael Schumacher, left Haas after two seasons. Nico Hülkenberg, who last competed in Formula One as a full-time race driver in 2019 with former team Renault, was brought in to take his place.
