The F1 launch season is one of the busiest times of the year as teams reveal their new rivals and lay out important goals for the upcoming season. Check out our comprehensive table below for the confirmed 2023 car launch dates. As of right now, all teams except Haas have announced the launch date for their new vehicles. AlphaTauri will debut their new livery for the first time in New York City on February 11. Williams will launch their 2019 season online on February 6 before Alfa Romeo on February 7 in Zurich. The unveiling of their new vehicles at their respective Silverstone and Woking factories on February 13 has been selected by Aston Martin and McLaren.

The following day, Ferrari will reveal its as-yet-unnamed vehicle, and on February 15, Mercedes, the eight-time constructors’ champions, will reveal their W14. The Alpine car will be revealed in London on February 16. Red Bull, the reigning world champions, has confirmed that their 2023 “season launch” will take place on February 3 in New York.

Champions Red Bull will be the first to unveil the vehicle they are hoping will help them retain their constructors’ championship and lead Max Verstappen to a third straight world championship. The technical rules that cars had to follow underwent a significant overhaul in 2022, leading to a variety of interpretations on the grid. By the time the season begins, with the first race taking place in Bahrain on Sunday, March 5, the first cars you will see at these launches may have a very different appearance.

Ferrari initially had the upper hand after a furious start to the season, but Red Bull soon pulled away from their erstwhile rivals. Due in part to porpoising, an aerodynamic phenomenon that caused cars to dip and rise at high speeds, Mercedes struggled for a significant portion of the season, but by the end of the year they had clawed their way back into contention.
