Four F1 teams have confirmed that they will be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard in 2023. The teams will arrive straight from the British Grand Prix the weekend before, ready to show off a mixture of current and historic racing cars.
Which F1 teams are coming to FOS 2023?
Last year’s Festival saw drivers including George Russell, Esteban Gutierrez, Marc Gene and Zhou Guanyu driving up the hill in a mixture of F1 and road cars, while Lando Norris, Daniel Ricciardo, Pierre Gasly, Esteban Ocon, Robert Kubica, Nico Rosberg and more have all wowed the crowds over the last few years.
Currently confirmed for the 2023 Festival are Williams, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG and Ferrari. All our F1 teams will be at the event over thall three days of the weekend, with several confirming that they will appear on Thursday – only the second time that those with tickets to the first day will be able to see the F1 teams.
The news of our first four F1 teams comes just a week after it was confirmed that four-time F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel will be at the Festival, driving some of his own historic F1 cars on sustainable fuels.
All the F1 teams at Goodwood this year will be housed, as usual, in the F1 Pit Lane presented by Sky. This unique space will be shared by drivers, teams and the public as the engineers and mechanics prepare their cars to drive up the Hill. It was also be a place that young people and local schools can explore STEM subjects and see behind the scenes of a motorsport team.
Formula 1 has been an integral part of the Festival of Speed ever since the very first edition, and in the year of the event’s 30th anniversary that will be no different. The teams will join us in celebrating our theme this year Goodwood 75, commemorating three-quarters of a decade of motorsport at Goodwood.

“As we look to the next 75 years of motorsport at Goodwood, the future of Formula 1 will play a big part in our storytelling as we all look to preserve the passion of the sport, but also enter the next phase of innovation and the role of alternative fuels.”
