The 2018 Formula One season is upon us and we have the full calendar of 2018 events for you to check out.
There have been a lot of changes during the offseason and this season should look much different. McLaren has switched power unit suppliers from Honda to Renault this year as they didn’t think that they were supplying competitive power units. This led to Toro Rosso parting ways with Renault and replacing them with Honda units. In order to amke that deal work, Red Bull Racing loaned Carlos Sainz Jr. to Renault.
Toro Rosso also singed 2016 GP2 series champion Pierre Gasly as well as 2-time World Endurance champion Brendon Hartley to their team as full-time drivers for the 2018 season. The Formula 2 champion, Charles Leclerc, will make his Formula One debut with Sauber.
This season will also see the introduction of a new cockpit protection device known as the “halo” for the 2018 season.
