Almost three-quarters of the 2023 Formula 1 season has been completed and along the way there's been a fair few crashes.

There is high pressure on drivers at all times, but going into the barriers in the current era is even more painful for the teams amid the operation under a budget cap.

But who has caused the most headaches for the teams? Below is an overview of the top 10 drivers that have caused the most crash damage so far in 2023.

Compiled by Reddit user basspro23chevy, the list keeps track of both the drivers and the teams that have spent the most on crash damage so far this season.

The list is limited to parts and excludes engines and gearboxes and the costs of each component is an estimate.

Logan Sargeant

Logan Sargeant has found himself at the top of an unfortunate Formula 1 list, officially costing his team the most money regarding crash damages so far this year.

The Williams driver has been enduring a difficult form of late, and has found the barriers on numerous occasions over the last handful of race weekends.

Sargeant has racked up almost $4 million in damages, leading the list by some way.

Lance Stroll

Lance Stroll has also endured a difficult year, having been consistently out paced by teammate Fernando Alonso.

Stroll currently sits second on the list of highest damage costs having had one of the biggest crashes of the year in Singapore during qualifying.

How about Hamilton and Verstappen?

Lewis Hamilton hasn't had the season that he wanted with Mercedes, who continues to struggle in the pecking order.

However, the seven-time World Champion has largely been clean this year. However, he endured a costly stint in the trio of races starting with Miami where he damaged his front wing.

At the following round in Monaco, he crashed out of FP3 before colluding with his teammate George Russell during qualifying in Spain.

At the very bottom of the list sits Max Verstappen, who has picked up $200,000 in damages for Red Bull.

The Dutchman is enjoying a dominant year and is en route to a third F1 World Championship with a ding into the Silverstone pit-wal and Baku Sprint collision with George Russell contributing to his costs.
