Max Verstappen is the man to beat, with the Red Bull driver winning his second consecutive world title last season, as he dominated the F1 field. The Dutchman easily fended off the Ferrari challenge and will hope to do so again in Bahrain.
Ferrari again looked strong in F1 testing, with Mercedes seemingly having more problems with many tipping Aston Martin to provide the Silver Arrows with a strong challenge in 2023.
