F1 Racing Teams 2019

  • Mercedes

Very logically, Hamilton has extended with Mercedes and for two years. The German team has chosen to renew its confidence in Bottas for just one year, keeping its options open for the 2020 season. So Ocon hasn’t had a chance yet, while Russell, who has just won a Formula 2 title, is still too young and has been placed on Williams.

  • Ferrari

Vettel has a contract that lasts until the end of 2020. To support the German, the Scuderia did not renew Raikkonen, who will make his significant return at Sauber, eighteen after having started there.

Ferrari made a sensation by promulgating his young pilot Charles Leclerc. The Monegasque has established itself as a credible candidate thanks to its excellent results at Sauber, not to mention its legendary Formula 2 races, crowned with a title.

  • Red Bull

Verstappen is still under contract in 2019. On the other hand, Ricciardo, not in a hurry to continue with the Austrian team, leaves his ranks. Rumors linked the Australian with Ferrari; it is finally with Renault that he joined.

To replace Ricciardo, Red Bull had hoped to bring Sainz back, whom she had lent to Renault for one season. Only, the Spaniard chose to sign at McLaren’s. Author of a successful season with Toro Rosso, Gasly was therefore logically promoted. The French rider also has the advantage of having already ridden with the Honda engine, which will equip Red Bull in 2019.

  • Renault

The French team took a big hit when they recruited Ricciardo. After spending his entire career, the Australian leaves the nest. There is no doubt that he has been seduced by Renault’s growth since the Lotus takeover in 2016.

So Hulkenberg will have to face a teammate like Ricciardo. Ocon was a prospective moment to join Renault, but it will not be anymore.

  • Haas

As the young American team continues to climb the ladder, its packs are becoming more and more attractive. Despite this, she chose stability by trusting Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen again.

After a difficult start to the season, the Frenchman was able to straighten things out and show how fast he could be. Danish was much stronger than last year, especially at the accounting level.

  • McLaren

Alonso decided to pause his career in Formula One. Tired of driving single-seaters and not allowing him to play in the first places, whether with McLaren or with Ferrari before, the Spaniard moves to another car discipline after having tasted Le Mans and WEC.

To replace his star pilot, McLaren didn’t hang around and enlisted another Spaniard, Carlos Sainz. He made a hell of a bet because he could claim a bat at Red Bull after Ricciardo left for Renault.

In a stable amid restructuring, Vandoorne, rightly or wrongly criticized for his performance, failed to keep his baton. McLaren had many options, including Perez and Ocon, which threatened to lose their tub to Stroll. The British team finally chose to promote their young rider Lando Norris, runner-up of the Formula 2 championship in 2018. She had anticipated this by offering free practice to the British as early as the summer Test.

  • Racing Point

Things are becoming more transparent around the Indian stable. In financial difficulties, it was bought by a consortium of investors, foremost among them Lance Stroll’s father, Lawrence. This ensures a more competitive tub than Williams for his son Lance.

With the support of his sponsors, Sergio Perez was logically returned. This leaves Esteban Ocon, supported by Mercedes, on the sidelines.

  • Alfa Romeo

Eighteen years after his Formula One debut, Raikkonen made his significant return to Sauber, or rather Alfa Romeo! Indeed, Hinwil’s team changes its name as the Italian manufacturer further strengthens its presence. So Raikkonen replaces Leclerc, who will take the Finnish baton from Ferrari. Raikkonen would also take shares of the team.

Ericsson, who had shareholder support, will serve as the third driver and Ambassador of the Alfa Romeo brand. Ferrari pushed to place one of his young drivers Antonio Giovinazzi, who will be starting. The Italian finished dauphin De Gasly in Formula 2 (ex-GP2) in 2016, before taking part in two Grand Prix races in 2017.

  • Toro Rosso

The departures of Ricciardo and Sainz’s lap Red Bull vacate seats. In the middle of a transition period for its young drivers, Red Bull is having a hard time replacing them, especially since Hartley, who suffers from the comparison with Gasly, did not give satisfaction.

Pierre Gasly was promoted to Red Bull, so there are two packages to be filled. The Austrian team decided to hire an elder from the House, Daniil Kvyat. Promoted to Red Bull, then demoted to Toro Rosso before being fired, the Russian made his significant return in Formula 1 after a season of absence.

An alumnus of the House, ousted from the young driver’s program in 2012, is making his big comeback. This is Alexander Albon. The young Thaïlandais has just completed two seasons in Formula 2, finishing last in the third position behind Russell and Norris. Previously, he had been crowned vice-champion of GP3, behind a certain Charles Leclerc.

  • Williams

Stroll, bringing a significant portion of the team’s budget, left Williams for Force India. To choose its drivers, the English squad worked differently. If financing is still the order of the day, she has not sold her packages to the highest bidder.

George Russell was first announced. Supported by Mercedes and GP3 champion then in Formula 2, the young Briton has successfully climbed all levels and seems to have a good future, which is not unlike that of Gasly or Leclerc.

Everything remained open for the second bat and Sirotkin, after one season, will no longer be part of the adventure. Williams called on experienced Kubica, who made his return after eight seasons of absence in the top class. A victim of a terrible rally accident and diminished in the right arm, the pole seems to have convinced on the track when he took the wheel in freestyle in 2018. He would have lost nothing of his speed, he who was very close to getting a steering wheel at Ferrari at the time and would have even done better than the starting goalkeepers.
