2017 Formula 1 Season Preview
So who will Mercedes choose to replace Nico Rosberg? Pascal Wehrlein is in prime position but lacks experience. We believe the Silver Arrows may overlook him in favour of a more headline name. Valtteri Bottas, Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz have all been touted. An announcement is expected before the end of the year so watch this space…
Driver experience is certainly a key concern for all teams next season because Formula 1 will introduce its biggest overhaul of aerodynamic regulations in nearly 20 years. The key changes are: wider cars; wider tyres; wider front & back wing and faster cars. Force India’s Sergio Perez was recently quoted as saying Formula 1 drivers will be “destroyed” after pre-season testing due to the heavily-revamped cars. These changes are likely to result in a major shakeup in F1’s pecking order and it promises to be a thrilling spectacle.
EDGE offer the most exclusive hospitality in Formula 1 and we are proud to work with Red Bull Racing, Sahara Force India & Ferrari. We believe that all of these teams could provide a serious challenge to Mercedes reign at the top of Formula 1 next season.
