In a season dominated by Red Bull's unparalleled success, it's the misfortunes of Ferrari that have taken centre stage in the eyes of F1 fans.
According to the latest poll by GPFans, Ferrari has been overwhelmingly voted as the unluckiest team of the 2023 F1 season, claiming a staggering 49 per cent of the votes.
The unluckiest F1 team category certainly shed light on the challenges faced by Ferrari throughout the season. While Red Bull soared to new heights, Ferrari grappled with bizarre issues that impacted their performance.
The GPFans poll results also revealed Aston Martin as the second unluckiest team, securing 23 per cent of the votes. The British team faced disappointment at the Monaco Grand Prix, where Fernando Alonso, driving for Aston Martin, missed out on a potential victory due to an outstanding lap by Max Verstappen, securing pole position for Red Bull and ultimately gaining a decisive advantage on race day.
AlphaTauri, with 14 per cent of the votes, found themselves in the unluckiest category after mid-season replacement Daniel Ricciardo fractured his hand just two races into his comeback. Meanwhile, Haas endured a challenging season, finishing with 12 points, claiming the unwanted record of the most points ever in a season while finishing at the bottom of the constructors' championship.
Mercedes, a team accustomed to success, secured 6 per cent of the votes in the unluckiest F1 team category.
