From Lewis Hamilton becoming the first man to score 400 points in a single season to a certain Kimi Raikkonen setting the fastest lap in F1 history, last season was record-breaking for various reasons.

The push to get rid of the ‘outwash’ effect of the old wing designs, and help reduce the turbulence for following cars, is aimed at trying to help improve the chances of overtaking.
Some big changes for 2019, not least Ferrari protege Charles Leclerc stepping up from Sauber to partner Sebastian Vettel – with former champion Kimi Raikkonen heading in the opposite direction. Daniel Ricciardo begins a new life at Renault, with Pierre Gasly taking over his Red Bull seat. Lance Stroll swaps Williams for Racing Point, while Carlos Sainz goes from Renault to McLaren. Robert Kubica and Daniil Kvyat make comebacks, plus we have four F1 rookies.

Watch ex-Formula 1 driver-turned-TV-pundit Karun Chandhok talk his way through the grand prix grid at Autosport International, and give his verdict on what to watch out for in testing and the upcoming season.
Joined by F1 Racing magazine’s executive editor Stuart Codling for their ‘grid walk’, Chandhok begins by talking about the upheaval at Ferrari – with the arrival of Charles Leclerc and promotion of technical director Mattia Binotto to team principal.
We went to the Monaco GP in 2017 and instead of staying in Monaco this time, we used a wonderful Campsite in Ventimiglia, Italy. It’s just over the border and very reasonably priced. The owners run a shuttle service to the train station and back making this a very practical and economical option. We ended up at the train station in the city after a 20 minute train ride and a 5 minute walk brought us to the gates. The site is called Camping por la Mar. Great people and nice site. Was very convenient and we will definitely visit them again. Their site is here. http://www.campingporlamar.com/

Join Toro Rosso on the grid at the 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix to see what the Italian squad actually get up to in the moments before a race begins.
