2019 Formula 1 calendar

Lewis Hamilton was the drivers champion for 2018 after a season long battle with Sebastion Vettel in the Ferrari and now we look ahead to the 2019 season.

It promises to be interesting with the introduction of significant new F1 technical rules in an attempt to bring about more overtaking and improve the show.
They include :-

Driver changes - George Russell and Robert Kubica join Williams replacing Lance Stroll (who moves to Racing Point) and Sergey Sirotkin. Daniel Ricciardo has moved to Renault from Red Bull to replace Carlos Sainz who has moved to McLarenAt Toro Rosso Alex Albon replaces Pierre Gasly (who has moved to Red Bull) and Brendon Hartley is replaced by Daniil Kvyat. Charles LeClerc leaves Sauber to replace Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari, while Kimi moves to Sauber where he will be joined by Giovinazzi in place of Leclerc.
So driver's leaving F1 are Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne (McLaren), Esteban Ocon (Force India), Brenden Hartley (Toro Rosso), Marcus Ericsson (Sauber) and Sergey Sirotkin (Williams).

The Force India team are now called Racing Point.
The Sauber team are now called Alfa Romeo.
  • Will the McLaren Renault be competitive at last ?
  • Will the Honda engine improve and make Red Bull more competitive ?
  • Can Ferrari beat Mercedes this year ?
  • How will drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly get on ?
  • Will Daniel Ricciardo's move to Renault pay off ?
  • Will overtaking be any more likely this season ?

All these questions and more will be answered during the 2019 season.
