Changes from last seasonEdit

Team changesEdit

  • After much speculation, Sauber originally planned to used engines powered by Honda, after previously using Ferrari engines.[22][23] However, on 27 July 2017, the team decided to withdraw from the plans,[24] and a day later announced a multi-year deal with Ferrari to use latest engines, following their use of 2016 engines in 2017.[18]
  • After three unsuccessful seasons, McLaren put an early end to their deal with Honda to supply engines for the constructor, and signed a three-year deal with Renault.[9] Toro Rosso also chose to use Honda engines.[20]
