The 2023 F1 Drivers' Championship Contenders

The 2023 F1 Drivers' Championship will see a lot of new faces entering the sport, however, the championship can only be contended in its true terms by a few. With Max Verstappen's unstoppable victory in the past season, it is quite apparent that he will try and win his third title in a row, however, Ferrari's Charles Leclerc is expected to present a challenge to him, too. It could also be their second driver, Carlos Sainz as the team has not yet chosen a number 1 driver.

At the same time, Mercedes will try to recover from the downhill season they faced in 2022 and Lewis Hamilton is expected to fight for his eighth world championship.

This makes these three drivers the most important contenders for the championship.
