(Motorsport-Total.com) – A record will surely be set in the 2023 Formula 1 season: Even if the Chinese Grand Prix is now canceled without replacement, we have the longest season of all time with 23 races ahead of us.

Will Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen set some records?
Of course, any driver who doesn’t miss a race will hold the record for most World Championship races completed in one season – and drivers in the early years of Formula 1 often did more races in a year, but most of them didn’t. t countdown to the official World Cup.
But we don’t want to deal with such nonsense records at this time. There are also real records that may fall this year. Of course, multiple wins, pole positions or podiums in a season are always statistically possible, but given Max Verstappen’s consistency over the years, they would certainly be a debt.
Nico Hülkenberg should continue to extend his unpopular streak of many races without a podium finish in Haas. But even if he managed to finish in the top 3, then he would have a new record for most races to the first podium.
But the German has another record that you shouldn’t have and that could be challenged by Lando Norris in 2023. you can find in our photo gallery. There are ten Formula 1 records that could be broken in 2023.
Outside of this photo series, we would also like to mention Fernando Alonso, who will set a new record in Bahrain: together with Michael Schumacher, Kimi Räikkönen and Rubens Barrichello, he has participated in 19 different Formula 1 seasons, 2023 will be his 20th. – and this should not be the end of it for a long time.
Unfortunately, the Spaniard also holds the career record with 281 finishes. He could lose that record, however, with Lewis Hamilton lurking and finishing one short. And with what is expected to be a Mercedes and Brit showdown, Aston Martin must stretch out a bit if the Spaniard is to stay ahead.
