This 2023 F1 Turbo Attax review looks at whether it’s worth collecting the entry-level Formula 1 Topps release. We’ve included key stats and lots of information about the set, as we take a detailed look at a product that disappeared off the shelves instantly.
2023 F1 Turbo Attax is the latest continuation of an exclusive worldwide agreement for Topps to be the Official Sticker and Trading Card Licensee of Formula 1. Topps says:

Formula 1 2023 Turbo Attax: What We Packed
We found nothing of note in our packs, but it was still a fun rip. The F1 card market might be smaller than other sports like football or baseball, but it’s always fun to hunt for parallels.
The set is great if you’re looking for cheaper cards featuring the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, along with rising stars such as Lando Norris, George Russell and Mick Schumacher. You’ll also find cards featuring the next round of rookie racers like Logan Sargeant.
Serial numbered parallels are one reason why the set is so popular. You’ll be able to identify them easily enough, as the serial number will be found on the front of the card, on the lower left corner.
For example, the David Coulthard Legend card seen above is limited to 500 copies. Serial numbered cards are most likely to be some of the more valuable options in the long term.
Formula 1 2023 Turbo Attax: Summary
2023 Turbo Attax is a great place to start your F1 collection, if you’re able to get your hands on packs now that they’re out of stock with some retailers. The addition of numbered parallels this year is likely to be the reason why, but it should lead to higher values long term.
As with any ‘Attax’ product, it’s a cheap rip, and it’s a good idea to set your expectations accordingly.
No 2023 Turbo Attax review would be complete without a checklist, but Topps have yet to make that information available online. We’ll update this space if and when a full 2023 Turbo Attax checklist is released.
