The first F1 car launches for the upcoming season are scheduled. Which teams are presenting their cars for 2023 and what can we expect from them? You can read it here.

Livery launch for Haas - 31 January 2023

Haas is the first team to pull the curtain off their new car on Tuesday 31 January. However, the team driving in 2023 with MoneyGram as their new title sponsor will only unveil the livery. Only the livery of the car will be new. The car is likely to use last year's model or perhaps even older.

The launch of the VF-23 is at 14:00 UK time. It seems that only online images will become available. It is possible that drivers Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg will speak a little about the new car, and Gene Haas and Guenther Steiner will also voice their expectations for this season.

Red Bull Racing car launch - 3 February 2023

On Friday 3 February, it will then be Red Bull Racing's turn. The reigning world champions are raising the bar, as an event has been organised in New York. There, a so-called 'Season Launch' will be held by Red Bull, where they will present the new car.

The team says they will also present the new car, but as will be the case for the other teams, chances are that this will only be a livery. Adrian Newey and his team will not want to make the competition any wiser than necessary so early on.

There is also another big rumour hanging over this launch. Indeed, the German branch of Sky Sports managed to report that the CEO of the new engine partner for 2026 will be present at the launch. Because of the presentation in the United States, the link with Ford is then quickly established. That possible partnership could also influence the livery of the car, although Red Bull are currently still working with Honda.

The team of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez has the tough task of performing better in 2023 than it did in 2022. The team won both the drivers' and constructors' titles. Christian Horner and his men will be looking for more but will face stiff resistance from Ferrari and Mercedes.
