The 2013 Formula One season was the 64th season of the Formula One World Championship. Eleven teams and twenty-two drivers competed in nineteen Grands Prix.[2] The season started in Australia on 17 March and ended in Brazil on 24 November.

The 2013 season was the final year for the 2.4 litre V8 engine setup.[3]

Sebastian Vettel was the defending World Drivers' Champion. He was Champion again in 2013.

Signed teams and drivers[change | change source]

At the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix, Bernie Ecclestone said that the "majority" of teams in the 2012 season agreed to compete in 2013.[4]

On 30 November 2012, the FIA published a provisional entry list for the 2013 season.[5]

Lewis Hamilton—seen here at the 2012 Bahrain Grand Prix—left McLaren to join the Mercedes works team in 2013.

Team changes[change | change source]

In November 2012, the owners of HRT F1 placed the team for sale.[30] The team needed to find a buyer by 30 November to remain in the sport.[31] HRT failed to find a buyer and the team was not included in the 2013 entry list.[32]

Driver changes[change | change source]

In September 2012, seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher said that he was retiring from the sport for a second time. 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton agreed to take Schumacher's place.[33] The move ended his fourteen-year career with McLaren.[34]

Driver Sergio Pérez left Sauber to join McLaren.[35] Nico Hülkenberg filled the vacant seat at Sauber. Hülkenberg was joined by Esteban Gutiérrez, who was Sauber's testing and reserve driver in 2011 and 2012.

Charles Pic moved from Marussia to Caterham. Max Chilton took his place at Marussia.

Calendar[change | change source]

The following nineteen races appeared on the 2013 race schedule. The number of races on the Formula One calendar is dictated by the Concorde Agreement.

The calendar was originally meant to host twenty races. This would add the new Grand Prix of Jersey.[36] The race in New Jersey was delayed to 2014.[37]
