Ranking the top 10 Formula 1 drivers of 2023

There can only be one choice for the top spot after such a season. But the rest of our top 10 Formula 1 drivers of 2023 proved much harder to decide

In many regards, 2023 was a one-dimensional F1 season as Max Verstappen crushed his competition decisively to cruise to the title, winning 19 of the 23 races in the process of claiming his third world title on the trot.

Scratch beneath the surface, however, and it was an engrossing season amid the best-of-the-rest all vying to be second best, along with the back of the field scrap over seventh in the constructors' championship. Carlos Sainz claimed the bragging rights with the sole non-Red Bull victory, echoing Ferrari's encroachment on McLaren's otherwise clean sweep of wins in 1988, but the competition he faced to do it mirrored the battle between Ferrari and Mercedes to sit behind the dominant Red Bull in the championship.
