Season highlights:

Bahrain: Aston Martin shock everybody and fight for a podium. Fernando Alonso makes a glorious overtake without DRS on Lewis Hamilton in a tricky part of the circuit. McLaren look like the worse car on the grid. Charles Leclerc retired with car issues.

Australia: A few laps before the end of the race, Kevin Magnussen causes a red flag. The standing race restart creates chaos, with Carlos Sainz taking a 10 seconds penalty, Niko Hulkenberg getting up to 4th place and the two Alpines coming together and taking each other out of the race.

Monaco: Max Verstappen makes one of the greatest 3rd sectors in history and clinches pole position from Fernando Alonso. During the race, rain brings chaos and Alonso has a chance for the win, but changes the tires one lap too late and gets overtaken by Max Verstappen.

Silverstone: McLaren brings much expected upgrades and the car that was the slowest in the first race of the season, takes the lead in the first corner, with Lando Norris at the wheel.

Zandwoort: Rain brings chaos on the track. All cars started on dry tires, while the rain started during the formation lap. Some of the cars decided to continue on slicks, while others changed to wets or intermediates. At Zandwoort we experienced the most overtakes in Formula 1 history.

Monza: The Ferrari drivers, battle for a podium, in a wheel-to-wheel battle during the last laps.

Singapore: A four car battle for the win, during the last laps with a twist. None of the cars fighting for the win was a Red Bull. Carlos Sainz takes the only non-Red Bull win of the season.

Qatar: Piastri gets his first win as a rookie, in a Sprint Race. It was the only non-Red Bull sprint win of the season.

Brazil: Alonso fight Perez for a podium during the last laps of the race. After being overtaken by Perez, he comes back and overtakes him right on the finish line. The FIA released a photo finish image, a rare image in Formula 1, to demonstrate who crossed the line first.

Las Vegas: Charles Leclerc passes Perez on the last lap of the race, finishing 2nd. Without the safety car, Leclerc would have had a chance for the win.

The 2023 Formula 1 season was a season to remember. From the record-breaking performance of Max Verstappen to the constant changes in the Driver and Constructor's Championships, we witnessed a real spectacle. What do you think? Are you ready for the 2024 Season?
