Explanation/News Clippings (transfers)
Mercedes have retained both of their drivers for the 2018 season despite the increasing tension between the two drivers.
Ferrari have rolled the dice and have put their faith in Sergio Perez and Sebastian Vettel, with Kimi's eventual departure happening at the end of last season.
The newly branded Red Bulls have kept their driver lineup for this year, with Horner stating that it's best for them to work with drivers that they're familiar with.
Renault were impressed with Hulkenberg's help with their efforts last year and have kept him for this season, with them signing Rookie Sergey Sirotkin-who did significant amounts of testing last year, alongside the German.
Williams have kept Bottas and Stroll for this year, having been impressed by the pair. Force India have turned into a "Mercedes B team" recently with both of their drivers a part of the Mercedes Academy, who are Pascal Wehrlein and Esteban Ocon. Pierre Gasly showed potential last season and has been placed into Toro Rosso to continue his development, Carlos Sainz has renewed his deal and will stay for a 4th season at Toro Rosso. Sauber, who have been bought out by Ferrari, and is now Scuderia Alfa Romeo, have promoted Giovinazzi and Leclerc to a full time F1 seat. Haas F1 Team have fulfilled their dream in having an American driver by signing Alexander Rossi, who raced with Andretti Autosport last year in the Verizon Indycar Season. He will race alongside Romain Grosjean. Manor Mercedes have signed Lynn and King, both of who have been involved with the team. Lynn has tested with Manor and Lynn raced with Manor's WEC team previously. Manor, who have teamed up with Mercedes, were looking to sign Mercedes talent. But with Ocon and Wehrlein needing a drive higher up the grid, and with other prospects not ready, they have decided to sign an all british lineup and go ahead with Manor's initial driver lineup before the partnership. Maximillian Günther and Mick Schumacher will be looking to impress in gp3 to earn a seat next season. McLaren have kept Fernando Alonso, who has decided against retirement. Nyck De Vries will instead spend this season as a reserve driver, and will race with Docomo Team Dandelion racing in the Super Formula series. Nyck will be looking to impress in the Honda powered car after a disappointing season in GP2.
Stoffel Vandoorne has been impressive and has been kept for this season.
Feature 3: New teams
Ever since Red Bull's relationship with Renault broke down in 2015, they have been looking for a new engine supplier who will supply first class engines to make them a works team, and not a customer team. Audi have been developing their f1 engines for 3 years and have joined Red Bull, to start a new era for both Audi and Red Bull.
With a massive lack of funds and another year at the back, we all thought that we would lose Sauber completely. But Ferrari, who have been wanting to start a team to develop talent, have bought out all of Sauber's assets and will run under the name of Scuderia Alfa Romeo. The team will act like a Ferrari B team, just like Toro Rosso.
Manor have struck an improved engine deal with Mercedes and have teamed up with AMG to become Manor Mercedes, the team will be used to develop Mercedes young talent, but with Ocon and Wehrlein requiring drives higher up the grid, the team has decided to go ahead with the team's initial driver plans before the partnership started. The team will keep it's original name for this season but the car will race with Mercedes colours. The team will become Manor-Mercedes for next season in 2019.
Feature 4:Skin Packs (FILE 2)
Arvaimate001 and I have been spending a lot of time making new skins for the whole grid.
Arvaimate has made all the skins for Red Bull and Alfa Romeo, and the skins include the garages and overalls too!
