F1 TEAM PROFILES
Utterly dominant since 2014, winning seven Constructors' and seven Drivers' Championships. Have the strategic aptitude to match their speed and will be very much the team to beat again in 2021.

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 at the front of the grid.
Once-mighty team with a glorious history. Continued down the long road to recovery with their best finish in the Constructors' Championship since 2012 with a P3 finish in 2020. Swap from Renault power to Mercedes power in 2021.
The team previously known as Force India became Racing Point after Lawrence Stroll purchased the cash-strapped team in 2018. They ran under the Racing Point moniker until the end of 2020, where they then fully rebranded as Aston Martin.
The Renault has been in and out of Formula 1 ever since first joining the sport as a constructor in 1977. Their latest fully-fledged return lasted five seasons from 2016 to 2020 before undergoing a full rebrand as Alpine.
The marquee team of the sport with history and glamour galore. However has struggled to keep pace with Mercedes in recent years and suffered their worst result in 40 years after a dismal 2020 campaign. They are confident of some improvement in 2021.
The team formerly known as Toro Rosso are heading into their second season under their AlphaTauri guise and will be hoping for magic in 2021 after Pierre Gasly's stunning victory at Monza in 2020.
A rebrand of the former Sauber team which has Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi behind the wheel of their cars for a third year. Looking for some highlights this year after a rather dismal 2020.
Haas are taking a risk in 2021 by bringing in two rookies in the form of Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin. Given the weight of the Schumacher name and Mazepin's indiscretions, it certainly won't be a quiet campaign for the American team.
A team with a hugely successful past but a hugely troubled recent past. With the Williams family selling the team in 2020, new owners Dorilton Capital and their resources give the team a better chance of a slow but steady climb up the Formula 1 ladder again.
