Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are closing in on their fourth World Championships, Fernando Alonso has at long last confirmed his return to McLaren in a Honda-less world, Brendon Hartley’s making his F1 debut at Toro Rosso, Carlos Sainz Jr. is switching to Renault and the Haas F1 Team looks to bring home the bacon on home soil between Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen as they look to solidify a grasp on seventh place in the Constructor’s Championship.
