Reigning champions Mercedes retain the same driver line-up for 2015, however a number of high profile drivers have switched teams. Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel joins Ferrari from Red Bull, while the man he replaces, Fernando Alonso, returns to McLaren to partner Jenson Button. Daniil Kvyat, meanwhile, departs Toro Rosso to take Vettel’s vacant seat at Red Bull. A number of new faces have also joined the grid, including teenager Max Verstappen and fellow rookie Carlos Sainz who together form F1 racing’s youngest ever driver line-up at Toro Rosso.
