Max Verstappen has confirmed that he will use race number 1 in the 2023 Formula 1 season.

Verstappen made a switch from number 33 to number 1 following his world championship victory in 2021. The Dutchman won his second title in 2022 which made him eligible to use number 1 again.

Verstappen revealed that he will have number 1 on his car next year as well as in any season when he defends the title.

“Yes, I will use number 1 again next season. For me, starting number 1 is the most beautiful number there is for any racing driver,” he said.

“How often do you get the chance to drive with starting number 1 in your Formula 1 career? You never know.

“I can always go back to number 33 if I am no longer world champion. But as long as I am world champion, I will use number 1 every single year.”
