Sauber to race with Alfa Romeo branding next year

They're be using 2018-spec Ferrari engines, as opposed to the year-old engines they used this year, plus with a big cash injection from the Alfa Romeo branding, we should expect them to make a big push into the mid-feild next year.

Torro Rosso will be using Honda engines, and as Honda still seem to be running around like headless chickens, with another personnel shuffle and no signs of any immediate improvement, it looks like the Torro Rosso pair could be fighting it out for the wodden-spoon.

McLaren will be racing with Renault engines, so it'll be interesting to see if they can make some steps forward. Williams will be racing their first car designed under Paddy Lowe (former Mercedes) so they also might be worth keeping an eye on.

What's new for 2018?

https://www.formula1.com/en/championshi ... anges.html

After the rules revolution of 2017 – one that saw F1 cars become wider and faster – this season’s changes are relatively few in number. That doesn’t mean, of course, that they aren’t important – and some will be very obvious indeed…


Technical regulations:
- T-wings and shark-fin style engine covers outlawed
- halo cockpit protection device mandatory
- suspension systems that could alter the car’s aero performance over a lap not allowed

Sporting regulations:

- drivers allowed three rather than four power units per season
- simplified grid penalties for power unit changes
- wider range of dry tyre compounds

IN DETAIL - Technical.....................>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil know`s you`re dead!
