Three rookie racers join the F1 2023 line-up; one veteran makes a comeback, and two drivers switch teams. Mick Schumacher will be replaced at Haas by Nico Hülkenberg, who will return to a full-time Formula 1 ride for the first time since 2019. Logan Sargeant, a young American driver, took Nicholas Latifi’s slot at Williams. Oscar Piastri and Nyck de Vries, the targets of a contract dispute between Alpine and McLaren, will join him as rookies.
The Dutchman, Piastri, has landed an AlphaTauri seat thanks to his outstanding backup drive for Williams at Monza the previous year. For the time being, Daniel Ricciardo’s Formula 1 racing career is over with this signing. He is back with Red Bull as a backup driver. In place of Fernando Alonso, Pierre Gasly has relocated to Alpine, while Nyck de Vries has taken his position. The Aston Martin seat previously occupied by Sebastian Vettel, a two-time champion, has been taken by Alonso.

Major Rule Changes for F1 2023
The FIA has made several adjustments and revisions to the rules. They are as follows:
The minimum ride heights for F1 2023 have been increased by 15mm, and the diffuser throat is also adjusted to account for the modification. The automobiles’ minimum weight of 798kg has decreased by 2kg to get 796kg. And to precisely detect the vertical forces acting on vehicles, additional sensors will get added. Moreover, as a consequence of Zhou Guanyu’s terrible Silverstone collision, roll hoops are tightened.
- Sprint Races
There will be twice as many sprint races in 2023. Six sprint weekends will occur in Azerbaijan, Belgium, Austria, Qatar, Brazil, and the United States.
- Grid Penalties
Drivers who have been penalized for starting at the rear of the grid or who have earned more than 15 total grid position penalties start behind all other drivers.
- Fuel Temp
Teams can now get more flexibility when it comes to cooling fuel. After departing the allocated garage zone, the gas in a car must never be colder than the lower of either 10° C under ambient temperature.
Formula 1 will test different tires during qualifying. All drivers will be obliged to utilize only hard tires in Q1, medium in Q2, and soft in Q3 for two races.
F1 has strengthened the regulations governing gearbox changes. With no performance advantage, modifications are only allowed “in the event of materials, techniques, or patented parts becoming unavailable.”
- Mirror Modifications
The rearview mirrors have changed as F1 2023 attempts to increase visibility. The reflecting surface’s breadth has expanded by 50mm from 150mm to get 200mm.
- Work Hours
Over the following two seasons, the time that Formula 1 team employees put in the GP race weekends will get cut. In 2023, the third of the three limited periods (on Fridays) will begin one hour earlier, with an hour getting eliminated in 2024. Finally, the number of curfews permitted on the first Wednesday and second Thursday will also get halved; to cut down on work hours in the paddock.
