➡ Five of the ten teams participating in F.1 already have their pairs confirmed.
After knowing the renovations of the Finnish Valtteri Bottas us Mercedes and the Mexican Sergio Pérez us Racing Point and the incorporation of French Esteban Ocon us Renault, the team of pilots of the F1 for Season 2020 takes shape little by little. In fact, Of the ten teams participating in the Maximum, half already have their pairs confirmed.
At the top of the list is Mercedes, undefeated since 2014 both in the World of Pilots as in the Builders Cup. The German brand trusted Bottas to be an English partner Lewis Hamilton for the fourth year in a row. As has happened since 2017, the new agreement with the Nordic has a duration of 12 months, something unusual in the specialty.
Ferrari also supports this year's couple, the German Sebastian Vettel and the Monegasque Charles Leclerc. The same happens with Racing Point, who extended his relationship with Pérez until 2022 to be the Canadian's partner Lance stroll (the son of the team owner ...) and McLaren, who ratified the Spanish in their posts Carlos Sainz and to english Lando Norris.
Renault is the fifth team that already has its two riders, although with a change compared to this year. Ocon joins the Australian as a new partner Daniel Ricciardo replacing german Nico Hülkenberg.
En Red Bull the only one confirmed is the Dutch Max Verstappen. Your partner may be the Thai Alex Albon, who replaced the French Pierre Gasly from Belgian GP after starting the year with Toro Rosso. Everything will depend on your performance.
Alfa Romeo Racing, Haas y Williams they also have a secured seat. The Italian brand maintains the services of the Finnish Kimi Räikkönen, while the Italian Antonio Giovinazzi you must raise your aim if you intend to continue in the structure.
The Yankees gave the OK to the Dane Kevin Mangunssen and it seems that they lowered the thumb to the French Romain Grosjean, which would be replaced by Hülkenberg. While the Grove team will give continuity to English George Russell and I would be looking for a substitute for the Polish Robert Kubica, who did not perform as expected.
Finally, Toro Rosso has not appointed any driver, but that is not a problem due to the large number of talents that exist in the Red Bull development program. Everything points to the continuity of the Russian Daniil Kvyat and Gasly, who after starting 2019 with the RBR was "demoted" to return to the Faenza team due to his poor performance.
