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.

2016 F1 Season Review

Congratulations to Nico Rosberg who won the 2016 F1 Drivers’ Title after a season long battle with team mate Lewis Hamilton, which culminated with a thrilling race in Abu Dhabi.
Mercedes dominated the headlines in 2016 but we may have seen the first signs that times are changing. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen had an incredible season and has firmly staked his claim as a future superstar. Daniel Ricciardo has his own title aspirations and we could well see a ‘Lewis vs Nico’ style battle between these two drivers next year.

2016 was a year of retirements with Felipe Massa, Jenson Button & Nico Rosberg stepping down, along with McLaren chief Ron Dennis. All four have been a credit to Formula 1 and have brought pleasure to their millions of fans over the years. We wish them the very best in the future.
