FIA Prize Giving Gala for 2023 gets a date as Max Verstappen and Christian Horner confirm attendance to represent Red Bull

The 2023 Formula 1 season has come to an end with Red Bull displaying a masterclass performance having won 21 out of the 22 Grands Prix this year. The Milton-Keynes-based outfit has seen enormous dominance throughout the recently-ended season where neither of their rivals like Mercedes and Ferrari could catch up to them. And this winning streak of the Austrian team is mostly because of their marqueé driver Max Verstappen who clinched his third World Championship title in 2023.

Max Verstappen started off the season a strong footing with a roaring win at the Bahrain GP. While he did lose at some street circuits like in Jeddah and Baku to his teammate Sergio Perez, he reasserted his dominance at the Miami GP. From then on, Max went on to widen the gap between him and Checo as he won back to back races. Max even broke the record of the highest number of consecutive Grand Prix wins in a single season as his winning streak continued till Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz disrupted it with his Singapore GP win.

Owing to Adrian Newey’s ‘rocketship’ RB-19 and Max Verstappen’s masterful racing skills, Red Bull will be presented with the World Championship trophy at the FIA Prize Giving Ceremony. The dates for the event have been revealed now. It will take place in Azerbaijan on December 8, at 8:00 PM CET. The program will be broadcast live all over the world on YouTube.

Red Bull are set to take home several awards from the FIA Prize Giving Ceremony which will take place to mark the end of the 2023 season. Representing the reigning World Champion team will be none other than their supremo Christian Horner and team drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez. The three will feature at the pre-ceremony carpet reception and press conference too.

Max Verstappen broke several records in 2023 as he asserted huge dominance over all his rivals. And recent reports also suggest that the Dutchman is the most economical driver of the recently-ended season as he took home the highest point even after causing his team to incur the least repairing costs (only $345,000 as opposed to Logan Sargeant who cost Williams $4.3 million).

While 2022 and 2023 yielded Red Bull a couple of overwhelming World Championships, their campaign next year might not turn out to be so successful. Mercedes Boss Toto Wolff has already revealed they would be completely changing their approach to build the W15 racecar with the sole purpose of bringing the challenge to Red Bull. Ferrari and McLaren have also talked about their targets to bridge the speed gap to Red Bull’s car in next year.
