Fanteam's Fantasy Formula 1 2023 full season game is now open - £10,000 guaranteed prize pool to be won

This year, we are back faster and more exciting than ever before and cannot wait for our loyal fantasy fans – and new customers – to get stuck in and enjoy the thrills and spills of an F1 fantasy season game.

Managers of our 2023 Fantasy Formula One Season Game will get to choose from F1’s top drivers, such as Britain’s finest Lewis Hamilton – and the current world champion Max Verstappen; to the next crop of stars such as George Russell, Oscar Piastri and Logan Sargeant.

The new season promises to be as dramatic as the last and with the small game rules and scoring tweaks we have added, the action will be as exciting and fast-paced for our season-long managers. 

As always, we will provide you with infographics below which show you our Game Rules and Scoring System – giving you all the info to help you create your strategies and approach.


To play in Fanteam’s £10,000 2023 Formula One Season Game contest, you will need to create and enter an 6-man team, consisting of 5 Drivers and 1 Constructor (eg: Red Bull, Ferrari, Mercedes, ect) – with a budget of 100M.

This contest is a Full Season game, where each race weekend is a Gameweek, and points are scored during Qualifying, Sprint Races and Race events (Grand Prix).

The deadline to make your weekly changes is until the Qualifying starts.

You have one free transfer to use each Gameweek – an unlimited amount of unused transfers can be saved and rolled over to the next Gameweek but you cannot purchase additional transfers.

You can pick a maximum of two from each team – this means you can pick either two drivers from one team, or, 1 driver and 1 constructor from the same team.

Your chosen Captain will score 1.25x points and your cheapest driver will automatically be your Underdog and will also score 1.25x points.

Each Fanteam customer can enter a maximum of 10 teams to this contest, should you wish to enter multiple teams to mix up your strategy and approach.

Price changes are active for this contest. Price changes will occur around midday on the Wednesday before each race.

Late Registration is available for this contest and will be open until the Gameweek 3 deadline, which is the Qualifying session for the Australian Grand Prix on April the 1st.

All Late Registration teams will start Gameweek 2 or 3 with 95% of the overall Average Score.
