Changes from last seasonEdit

Team changesEdit

  • Sauber formed a technical partnership with Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo for the 2018 season onwards, with Alfa badging across the car and their Ferrari engines.[42]
    • Sauber had originally revealed a deal to use Honda engines for the 2018 season, breaking their decade long relationship with Ferrari.[61][62]
    • However, their Honda plan was publically dropped on the 27 July 2017, quickly followed by the announcement of a multi-year deal with Ferrari to use their 2018-spec engines.[63][64]
  • McLaren signed a three-year engine supply deal with Renault, ending their long-term contract with Honda prematurely.[18]
  • Honda's sole customer for 2018 was revealed to be the Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso, with the potential for a deal with the senior Red Bull effort from 2019.[46]
  • Red Bull would have British car manufacturer Aston Martin as their title sponsor.[31]

Technical RegulationsEdit

Sporting RegulationsEdit

  • The pre-season tests will consist of seven days overall, and the mid-season test will be held at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, after being held at the Bahrain International Circuit the previous year.[75][76]
  • If a driver receives a grid penalty for exceeding the allowance of power unit components and it is worth more than fifteen places, they will automatically start from the back of the grid.[77] If more than one driver has the same penalty, their position will depend on who changed their components first.[77]
  • Most European Grands Prix will have their sessions held an hour later, while every race will also start an extra ten minutes later, in order to gain larger television audiences and enable broadcasters into spending more time interviewing drivers and teams during the pre-race build-up.[78]
