Formula 1 drivers

20 F1 drivers, all with proven track records in the junior series below Formula 1. In 2020, the 20 strongest racers in the world will once again be eager to join the 10 teams in an attempt to gain eternal fame by becoming world champions. Lewis Hamilton has everything to lose but also has an opportunity to write history; he can equal Michael Schumacher in terms of the number of titles won.

Driver changes did take place after the 2019 season, but even during 2019 itself drivers swapped seats. Pierre Gasly got his chance next to Max Verstappen, but was swapped for rookie Alexander Albon as the Thai driver manned the second seat at Red Bull Racing from the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix onwards.

In 2020, Esteban Ocon will also return to the grid with Renault. The Frenchman was linked to a seat at reigning world champions Mercedes but ended up at the French team, taking Nico Hulkenberg’s seat. He will partner up with Daniel Ricciardo, who will likely be the French team’s number one driver.

After his comeback in 2019, Robert Kubica gave up his seat to Nicholas Latifi at Williams. Whether the Grove-based team can recover in 2020 remains to be seen, but they looked stronger in pre-season!
