With the new year upon us, the time is fast approaching for Formula 1 teams to officially unveil the cars with which they will do battle in the 2023 season.

The Haas team will kick off launch season by unveiling their 2023 livery on 31st January, with a 'full' 2023 car launch expected closer to testing, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Reigning World Champions Red Bull will then unveil the RB19 on February 3rd in New York, eight days before sister team AlphaTauri do the same with their AT04 challenger.

Williams are set to launch on February 6th, but this will just be a 'season launch' with the livery set to be unveiled with the car itself at a later date.

A day later Alfa Romeo will reveal their C43 in Zurich with drivers Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu.

Both Aston Martin (AMR23) and McLaren (MCL37) are launching their new cars on February 13th, with Ferrari set to make their new machine public one day later - on Valentine's Day.

Following the Ferrari launch, Mercedes will reveal the W14 E Performance on the 15th February.

Alpine's machine is the last confirmed car, with February 16th the date the A523 will be released.

In 2022, Red Bull, Alpine, Alfa Romeo and Haas waited until the morning of the first pre-season test to reveal their new cars, and it would not be a surprise if several teams did likewise this year.

F1's three days of official winter testing take place from February 23 to 25 at the Sakhir Circuit in Bahrain, with the same venue hosting the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix on March 5.
