It is officially Formula 1 car launch season. Red Bull Racing got the ball in motion when unveiling its 2023 challenger during a ceremony in New York City on February 3rd. The live show was broadcast to over 30 countries across the globe and streamed by thousands of fans worldwide.

After winning both the World Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships in 2022, the Red Bull team produced an experience which put fans at the heart of the launch wherever they were in the world.

During proceedings Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner and Drivers Max Verstappen, Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez and Daniel Ricciardo presented a host of unique moments. You can watch the launch show in full below.

Emerging Market

Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner said: “At Oracle Red Bull Racing we always strive to do things first and do things differently. This is the first time we have launched our season outside of the UK and the first time any F1 Team has launched in the USA.”

“The growth of our sport in America cannot be ignored, there are over 50 million F1 fans in the USA, of which 72% follow us, and the way the fans have embraced our Team here has been very special to see.”

“Oracle Red Bull Racing will be Stateside more than ever in 2023, not just racing but also running Red Bull Showruns and the first F1 Team-led road trip in America, the USA Grand Tauro, later this year.”

Ricciardo is Back with the Bulls

Ricciardo’s appearance on the Red Bull stage may surprise many but the Australian has rejoined the team as its third driver for 2023. His wealth of experience and character means he “will assist the team with testing and Sim work, as well as commercial activity”.

With 29 trophies to his name, there were plenty of high points in an excellent first run with Red Bull Racing. Immediately making an impact in his first year in 2014, finishing third in the Championship and securing wins in Montreal and Budapest.

In 2016, he was also the only driver to finish all 21 races. 2017 saw Daniel win a wild Azerbaijan Grand Prix and take eight other podiums, before rolling into the 2018 season with a bang. He won two of the first six races that year, storming through the field in China and then Monaco.

Former Racers in Reserve

Since Ricciardo left Red Bull at the end of 2018, he has spent two years respectively at Renault and McLaren. But he did not enjoy the success he had become accustomed to.

He is not the only former racer that will act as a reserve or ‘third driver’ in the year ahead. Former Sauber and Alfa Romeo racer, Antonio Giovinazzi – boasting a career best of fifth from 62 race starts – could find himself at the wheel of a Ferrari during 2023.

Mick Schumacher – a 44 race veteran – transfers from a race seat at Haas to be Mercedes reserve driver. Stoffel Vandoorne had two unspectacular seasons at McLaren, nevertheless, he could be called up at Aston Martin. And Pietro Fittipaldi, who took part in two races for Haas in 2020, has been retained by the team as its reserve driver in 2023.
