2018 F1 drivers and teams

A list of teams and drivers which have been confirmed or are expected to take part in the 2018 F1 season.

Where a driver had not been confirmed the occupant of the seat for 2017 is listed and marked TBC. Where a team have previously announced a driver has a contract with them for the year this is marked “has contract”. However it is not unusual for contracts to be subject to clauses which can permit them to be broken.

The reigning world champion has the option of adopting the number one or continuing to use his career number.
