2016 Formula 1 Drivers
Reigning champions Mercedes retain the same driver line-up for 2016, as do most of the other top teams. That doesn’t mean there aren’t big changes, though. Romain Grosjean moves to the all-new Haas squad - the first American-led team to join the grid in three decades - and is partnered by F1 returnee Esteban Gutierrez. At Renault (the French car maker having taken over Lotus), Great Britain’s Jolyon Palmer steps up from his reserve role to partner former McLaren racer Kevin Magnussen. And at Manor, two new names make their debut - Mercedes protege Pascal Wehrlein and Indonesia's first F1 driver, Rio Haryanto.
