19 drivers confirmed for 2016 Formula One World Championship

10 Feb 2016 13:23

Pascal Wehrlein is the latest name to be added to the 2016 Formula One roster after he was confirmed by Manor on Wednesday.

The highly-rated German driver will be one of only two new faces on the grid this season - the other being Britain's Jolyon Palmer - following a winter of relative status quo.

Indeed eight of the 10 teams have named an unchanged driver line-up for the new campaign which gets under way in Melbourne on March 20.

And with only one more seat to be confirmed - also at Manor - Press Association Sport looks at who will be racing where when the lights go out in Australia next month.
