2023 has only just arrived but already fans are waiting for the F1 23 trailer.
With F1 22 leaving players wanting, the anticipation for the next game is high. Codemasters & EA have a lot to live up to, and thanks to F1 Manager 2023 they no longer have the only major Formula 1 license in town either.
So when will Codies break cover and give us an F1 23 trailer? Let's take a look.
F1 23 trailer
It's a waiting game for wannabe-F1 racers, but for Codemasters too.
They can't unveil F1 23 until teams have locked in sponsors, liveries, and initial car designs, which isn't happening until February.
Even then that's far too early to announce and tease. The expected F1 23 release date isn't until June at the earliest.
As a result, we don't expect to see or hear anything official on F1 23 until April.
This is usually when Codemasters drops an announcement trailer, with a features trailer following in May.
That may seem like a long wait, but with Forza Motorsport expected between now and then there is plenty for racers to enjoy!

So what exactly will change in F1 23?
Well we don't know just yet what Codemasters is planning, but one thing we can be pretty sure of is that story mode will be back.
Having first appeared in F1 2019 with the Feeder Series, it was absent from F1 2020 before returning with Braking Point in F1 2021.
After another year off we expect Codies to bring back this successful game mode for F1 23.
Whether that means the return of Aiden Jackson and Devon Butler we don't know. It would be cool to take Jackson to the championship after navigating his move to Mercedes last time out, but equally another rags-to-riches story would be awesome too.
Some proper upgrades to Career Mode and My Team are a must after a year of stagnation for players that pour their time into the single-player aspect of the game.
Better livery editing for players on console would be great to see too. But that may be outside of Codemasters' control.
