F1 2023: Confirmed drivers and team lineups for Formula One season

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso’s switch to Aston Martin on a long-term deal has been arguably the most high-profile move made so far ahead of the 2023 Formula One season.

“He will demand a lot from us, but that’s to be expected from a multiple world champion,” Team Principal Mike Krack told Aston Martin’s official channels, calling the deal a “statement of intent” that he expects will help them make success “the norm”.

Alpine appeared to have signed Oscar Piastri before he publicly denied joining the team, and Williams tied Alex Albon to a multi-year deal.

How does that leave the F1 lineups for 2023? Which places are yet to be decided? Here’s what we know for sure.

Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, Lewis Hamilton: stick or twist?

The latest on Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton for 2023 is that all three are staying with their teams, as is Sergio Perez, who partners Verstappen at Red Bull.

George Russell will still be alongside seven-time champion Hamilton at Mercedes, and Carlos Sainz will continue to be Leclerc’s accomplice at Ferrari.

Hamilton considered retiring after the controversial end to the 2021 season but has now hinted that he could agree new terms with his team.

Which driver changes could there be in 2023?

There are questions to be answered across the field — most notably at Alpine. They believe they have signed Piastri, but he has been linked with McLaren.

Williams Driver Academy star Logan Sargeant could replace Nicholas Latifi if he leaves the team, although Nyck de Vrie is thought to be in pole position to step in.

Mick Schumacher’s position is likely to come under scrutiny at Haas and Zhou Guanyu or Theo Pourchaire are thought to be the options for Alfa Romeo.
