The lineup for the 2016 F1 season is confirmed. While there has not been a major reshuffling of the lineups amongst the top teams, some of the teams in the middle of the pack have shaken their lineups.
A look into the drivers who will have something to prove or to continue their work from the 2015 season for the upcoming championship.
Lewis Hamilton- Mercedes AMG
Lewis Hamilton has had the best 2 years of his F1 Career. He won the title in 2015 with several races to spare. It’s no surprise that he would be the first favourite for the 2016 title as well, followed by his teammate.
Mercedes know their competitive advantage will be diminishing as other teams also come to grips with the new engines. Ferrari and Vettel are likely to finally mount a sustained title challenge, and it’s up to Hamilton to soak up the pressure from an experienced challenger, and avoid off-track distractions as such a thing mid-season could seriously dent his title run.
Don’t count Nico out from being the biggest rival, this year Hamilton will have his hands full. He should ideally be targeting at least 10 race wins and sustained podium finishes in the other races.
