Formula 1® Drivers

All the top teams have unchanged line-ups for 2018, but there are some exciting moves further down the grid. At Williams, Lance Stroll gets a new team mate in Sergey Sirotkin, while Toro Rosso retain the newcomers Pierre Gasly and Brendon Hartley, both of who made their F1 race debuts with the Italian squad late last year. And joining Sauber is reigning F2 champion and Ferrari Driver Academy member Charles Leclerc.
