For those new to the sport, this may already feel like an era of dominance from Red Bull, but many teams have enjoyed sustained periods of F1 success since the championship's inception in 1950.

In this series of explainer articles, RealSport101's Harry Smith will take you through the basics of F1, whether you're new to the sport, or just looking for a refresher.

Who is the most successful team in F1 currently?

Red Bull dominated the 2022 Formula 1 season, racking up a phenomenal 759 points and winning 17 of the 22 races.

This looks to be the start of another F1 dominance era, although the impending sanctions from Red Bull's cost cap breaches will likely prevent them from running away in the development race.

Here are the 2023 F1 teams in order of race wins:

  • Ferrari - 243 race wins (16 WDCs)
  • McLaren - 183 race wins (8 WDCs)
  • Mercedes - 116 race wins (8 WDCs)
  • Williams - 114 race wins (9 WDCs)
  • Red Bull - 92 race wins (5 WDCs)
  • Alpine (formerly Renault) - 21 race wins (2 WDCs)
