Changes from last seasonEdit

Team changesEdit

  • Haas F1 Team began competing in the F1 World Championship Series after founder Gene Haas cancelled his entry for 2015.[48] Power units supplied by Ferrari were used.[49] The team also had plans to shake their car down in December 2015 before the beginning of the pre-season testing in 2016,[50] and Dallara made the chassis,[51] having previously made the chassis for HRT in 2010.[52]
  • Following Red Bull's claim that Renault's engines were not making much performance, they were originally ending their nine-year partnership with Renault,[53] but eventually continued using Renault engines, though their engine name had the TAG Heuer brand.[54][16]
    • Christian Horner, team principal of Red Bull, revealed that the team had talks with Volkswagen, but they have been put on hold after the reports of Volkswagen causing emission scandals.[55] The team also had plans to use engines from either Mercedes, Honda or Ferrari, but those failed.[56][57][58]
  • Marussia had their engines supplied by Mercedes instead of Ferrari.[11] However, they have to do a management reshuffle following resignations of John Booth and Graeme Lowdon.[59] On 19 January 2016, they confirmed their team name to be "Manor Racing".[10]
  • In September 2015, Lotus was under threat by HM Revenue and Customs for not giving enough money for their PAYE tax.[60] A letter of intent was later signed by Renault to buy Lotus, although the team's identity was not confirmed to have changed.[61] On 29 November 2015, Gerard Lopez said that the team did not manage to secure the deal, adding that they still had Mercedes engines available as part of the contract.[62] However, on 3 December 2015, Carlos Ghosn confirmed that Renault had bought the team.[21]
  • Before the Hungarian Grand Prix, Sauber was bought by Longbow Finance, though Sauber's team founder Peter Sauber confirmed he was retiring.[63]
  • After Renault announced that they would not supply engines to any other teams,[64] Toro Rosso went ahead to use Ferrari's 2015 engine, due to that the decision was made at the last minute.[26]

Driver changesEdit

  • Romain Grosjean departed from Lotus,[65] and join the Haas F1 Team.[37][66]
  • Kevin Magnussen left McLaren after the team chose Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso for the season.[67][68] He will race for Renault,[69] while Pastor Maldonado confirmed that he will not take part,[43] despite having a contract with Lotus before they were bought by Renault.[70]
  • Following Grosjean's departure from Lotus, Jolyon Palmer will take his seat.[39]
  • On the 30th of October 2015, Esteban Gutierrez was announced as a driver for Haas F1 in 2016.[40]
  • Pascal Wehrlein raced for Manor for the whole season,[8] along with Rio Haryanto.[47] They both replaced Will Stevens, Roberto Merhi and Alexander Rossi. Stevens and Merhi went to compete for Manor Motorsport in the FIA World Endurance Championship,[71][72] while Rossi, meanwhile went to race for Andretti Autosport in the IndyCar Series,[73] but remained as Manor's test and reserve driver.[74]

The United States Grand Prix, at the time the calendar was released, was yet to be confirmed by Formula One Management and the event promoters, following low attendance at the 2015 race during poor weather conditions.[78] Subsequently, on 9 March, the Circuit of the Americas, the circuit at which the United States Grand Prix is held, confirmed that the race would go ahead as planned.[79]

Changes from last seasonEdit

Races not on 2015 calendarEdit

Races removed from calendarEdit

Schedule ChangesEdit

Other changesEdit

TestingEdit

Regulation changesEdit

General ChangesEdit

  • The FIA and Formula One Management will have more power of the sporting and technical regulations and make decisions to change the sport's governance.[96]
  • Starting from the Monaco Grand Prix, drivers are allowed to choose a different crash helmet design for one race,[97] after they were previously not allowed to change their helmet design at all during the 2015 season.[98]

Technical RegulationsEdit

  • Cars have a requirement of separate wastegates so that the exhaust gases can pass through, called the "screamer pipe", making them louder than the 2014 and 2015 cars.[99]
  • An "ultrasoft" tyre compound was introduced,[100] with the colour of purple following the most votes on Pirelli's social media channels.[101] However, it can only be used on street circuits.[102]
  • Three dry compounds will be brought to each race instead of two, and would be announced two weeks before each race.[101][103][104] Pirelli makes the choice of two compounds, and a third in Q3 that is the softest tyre available. Drivers can choose their last ten tyre sets between the three dry compounds, but must make sure they use at least two dry compounds during a dry race, and use at least one of the compounds chosen by Pirelli.[105]
  • The numbers of tokens that can be used to develop power units will be increased to thirty-two, so to allow struggling manufacturers like Renault and Honda to make improvements, as well as adding development on car parts that were originally going to be closed off.[106]

Sporting RegulationsEdit

  • There were two pre-season tests rather than three, starting in 2016.[107]
  • The FIA have allowed up to twenty-one races each season instead of twenty, so to support the 2016 calendar, which has twenty-one races.[105]
  • Drivers must not go off the white lines on the edges of the racetrack unless they make an error.[99] The FIA also looked into other ways to prevent drivers from exceeding track limits, such as having GPS tracking and high-speed cameras included, reprofiling kerbs, and pressure-sensitive sensors installed.[108]
    • In the Austrian Grand Prix, "baguette" kerbs were put at the curves where it is easy for drivers to go wide and gain time while off the track, though they resulted in damaging a couple of cars during practice.[109]
    • In the Hungarian Grand Prix, electronic detection systems were added.[110]
  • If an extra formation lap takes place, any driver responsible must start from the pit lane.[99]
  • Grid penalties for changing a gearbox or going to a fifth power unit will take effect depending on the times they are given.[99]
  • To prevent unneeded red flags and session stoppages, practice sessions will include the virtual safety car.[103]
  • Following the controversy of Max Verstappen being qualified for a super licence at 16 years of age after competing in only one season of European Formula 3,[112] there will be a change in new drivers' process for the FIA Super Licence,[113] with extra restrictions included. Drivers must be no younger than 18, have to carry a valid road driver's licence, and need to race in at least two seasons of recognised feeder series. The FIA have also introduced a point system for the junior motorsport series, where new drivers will need to score 40 points within a three-year period from these series, and complete at least 80% of two complete seasons outside any notable point-paying championships like the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship,[114] so to get a super licence.[112][115] The Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters and World Touring Car Championship were later added.[116]
  • The FIA formally retired car number 17 following Jules Bianchi's death.[117]
  • Two weeks before the start of the season, the FIA made notable changes to the qualifying session. One of these is having the slowest drivers eliminated throughout each session.[118]
  • Restrictions were made for pit-to-car communications in a way of having drivers race without help, and race control would listen to the radio feeds in real time, although having to be extra careful about coded messages.[128]
    • Following the British Grand Prix, the rules were updated so that if the team have to give serious advice on an issue with the car, the driver must bring their car to the pits for an investigation or to retire from the race.[129] After the Hungarian Grand Prix, it was agreed that the the restrictions would be removed for every part of a race except the formation lap.[130]
