Let’s take a look at each Formula 1 team’s points change in the 2023 F1 season as compared to the last year:
Mercedes was impacted by the new competition (Aston Martin and McLaren).
Interesting to note that for the teams at the back (Haas/Williams/Alfa Tauri) the points swing has been limited. Goes to show how difficult it is to make that jump from the back of the field to the midfield/subtop.
Ferrari literally botched it. Having the fastest car in the start of year only to end up with a very unstable and unreliable SF-23 this year. The Maranello team really needs to understand why they wouldn’t keep the development from last year. Now, they’re changing the whole concept again in 2024.
