F1 TEAM PROFILES
Utterly dominant since 2014, winning six Constructors' and six Drivers' Championships. Have the strategic aptitude to match their speed, and based on winter testing performance will be difficult to beat again in 2020.
The marquee team of the sport with history and glamour galore. However has struggled to keep pace with Mercedes in recent years and enjoyed a difficult 2019 when the strategic gulf between the top two teams appeared to widen. Huge challenge awaits again in 2020.

Boast arguably the best driver on the grid in Max Verstappen, and an absolute technical genius in Adrian Newey. Straight-line speed has always hurt them in recent years however when compared to Mercedes and Ferrari at the front of the grid.
Once-mighty team with a glorious history, which hinted at the start of a renaissance by finishing P4 in the Constructors' standings in 2019. Will be hoping to continue that trend in 2020 with two drivers of potential and harmony in the garage.
Failed to take the next expected leap forward in 2019 following the signing of the brilliantly fast Daniel Ricciardo. P4 in the Constructors' standings in 2018 became P5 in 2019 as they were overtaken by McLaren. The pressure will be on in 2020.
The team formerly known as Toro Rosso is coming off a stellar year in which it trebled its all-time podium tally as both Kvyat and Gasly enjoyed a taste of champagne. P6 in the standings equalled their best ever showing, giving hope for 2020.
The team formerly known as Force India could finish only P7 in 2019 - their worst performance in six years. That came after a difficult start partly caused by the previous year's financial issues. Late-season improvement gave hope for the 2020 season.
A rebrand of the former Sauber team which reportedly needs to up the ante in 2020 or risk losing Alfa Romeo. Signing of Raikkonen for 2019 was a statement of intent, but it did not provide the move up the standings the team might have hoped for.
Had a miserable 2019 campaign after appearing to be on an upward curve before that. The season was more notable for Grosjean and Magnussen colliding and Gunther Steiner becoming a Netflix star than any meaningful success on the track.
A team with a hugely successful past but a hugely troubled recent past. Were way off the pace during the 2019 season after failing to get a car to the start of pre-season testing. Will hope 2020 is the start of the long road back to relevance.
