Here at Teamworks, we’re revving our engines for the upcoming Formula 1 season, kicking off on the 5th March in Sakhir. If, like us, you have a need for speed, you’re probably on top of the latest news – but we thought we’d draw everything together into one convenient place. After all, making sure things run as smoothly as possible for you is sort of our thing.
More Races Than Ever
The race calendar has continued to expand after the changes that were brought in to handle COVID, and the current calendar is the biggest-ever, with a whopping 23 races scheduled for the upcoming season. (Last year there were only 22, after the Russian GP was cancelled.)
Not having enough races is an issue close to our heart here at Teamworks, which is why we designed our Unlimited Karting package to make sure a visit to our track always leaves you satisfied. For the Karters who just can’t get enough, Monday nights at our karting venues provides a solution for drivers who are sixteen years or older.
The Dream Team
Red Bull aren’t changing their line-up this year, which makes three seasons in a row with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez behind the wheel. Mercedes are following suit, with Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, while Ferrari are sticking with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.
If your dream team is feeling the itch to put the pedal to the metal, you might want to consider our Team Racing package, which is perfect for adult groups of 30+ drivers. You’ll be guided through qualifying rounds followed by a 2 hour Le Mans style race – it’s the ultimate corporate event.
Reinventing the Wheel
F1 teams will have been putting the finishing touches on their new cars – after all, they should have been ready to run by the 25th February. With Red Bull launching theirs on February 3rd, F1 fans have been given plenty of time to anticipate the upcoming season. In 2022, a new set of rules were introduced to ensure “dirty air” was kept to a minimum without affecting the aerodynamics too much.
The cars were only a second slower overall in comparison to 2021, a gap which was largely addressed by their pace in the higher-speed corners. However, porpoising and bouncing caused discomfort and visibility issues for the drivers. In 2023, the FIA has introduced changes to mitigate that, ensuring wild oscillations are kept in check.
At Teamworks, our karts are fast! Our adult karts can hit 40mph, while our cadet karts can reach up to 25mph. We’ll always start a karting session with a security briefing to make sure everybody on the track is driving safely. We also have Public Liability Insurance and Risk Assessments – if your business or school requires those documents, you can get in touch with your Event co-ordinator or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send them over.
