The 2018 season of Formula One is just around the corner. And all of the cars fighting for glory have finally been revealed. Let's take a look at the vehicles that will be taking their places on the starting grid this year...
Mercedes W09 EQ Power+
Mercedes AMG Petronas is determined that this new racer will be the fastest car it has produced to date, which suggests it may break a few more lap records set by the V10s of 2008. Complete with the so-called EQ Power+ system, the W09 will be piloted by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas once again.
Scuderia Ferrari 71H
Ferrari?s 64th single-seater racer, to be driven by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, is primed to fight the Germans once again. The new model boasts an array of aerodynamic improvements and an overall mass of 733 kg.
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing RB14
Back in matte, the Red Bull Racing contender bears a design that can be traced all the way back to the 2005 RB1. The new car will again be driven by Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo.
Force India VJM11
Decked out in pink, the new racer from Force India retains BWT as its major sponsor. The VJM11 will be driven by Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon.
Formula Williams 41
Williams claims that the new car is significantly different to last year?s competitor, but at first glance, they look more or less the same, largely thanks to the Martini livery. With rookies Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin at the helm, fans will be see whether this car can live up to the manufacturer?s legendary history.
Renault Sport 18
The RS 18 features a darker livery for this season, with Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz taking the wheel. Interestingly, the new car was revealed via hologram projection, allowing fans to have a full 360? view of it.
Scuderia Toro Rosso 13
Bearing a metallic blue livery, the STR13 now employs a Honda engine, which proved to be quite problematic for McLaren last season. It?ll be interesting to see how Brendon Hartley and Pierre Gasly fare with the new powertrain.
Dressed in black and red, the VF-18 is Haas?s third Formula One car. With the North American team finishing in eighth last year, the world will be watching Romain Grosiean and Kevin Magnussen to see whether they can build on the team?s performance.
The MCL33 goes for an orange-and-blue livery this time, much like the brand?s CanAm cars of the 1970s. With the new car dropping Honda?s engine for a hopefully more reliable Renault mill, fans will be paying close attention to the driving of veteran Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne.
Alfa Romeo Sauber C37
Probably the most anticipated livery of the season is the C37, mainly because it now bears the legendary Alfa Romeo badge. With this prestigious name making its way back into Formula One, there?s going to be a lot of pressure on Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc to fly the flag high.
