Welcome to the 2018 World Championship of Formula 1.

Competitive state after the 2017 season
  • American media company, Liberty, has bought the rights to Formula 1….they are planning to Americanize the series, so expect music during dramatic racing moments, WWE style entrances, and other American bullshit. This post brought to you by, POWERSLICE - feelin' hungry? Grab a slice.
  • Mercedes ends the season with another crushing victory over Ferrari
  • Lewis Hamilton is the reigning Driver God-Emperor of The Greatest Racing Series Of All-Time as we go into 2018.
  • Hulkenberg still unfulfilled in terms of his potential. Time is the fire in which we burn and he will be jumping out of the flames any year now to claim his own Champion Title.
  • Stroll is still poo poo, so what

What happened in the off season?
  • Williams retains noted binman Stroll and confirms that Russian Sergey Olegovich Sirotkin will be driving alongisde. Williams really want to stress that money didn’t play any factor in this decision at all.
  • Sauber is now partnered with Alfa Romeo, great to see a real Italian automotive brand in the sport for once.
  • Alonso is still the prettiest driver
  • All cars are now mandated to have a “Halo” safety device around the driver’s cockpit - the cars now look like sandals with wheels
  • Literally nothing else happened.

2018 Formula 1 Teams, in order of 2017 Championship results


Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport
The Silver Arrows are back as the 4x reigning champs, and the team to beat this year. Their car is still silver. They still have a black guy and a wet napkin piloting the cars.



Scuderia Ferrari
2017 saw The Scud bring a championship contending car to the season, however about half way through the season they blew it on dumb strategy calls and having a massive petulant child driving one of the cars. Can they seal the deal and bring a WCC back to Maranello this year? Your guess is as good as mine. (which is a nope)



Aston Martin Red Bull Racing
Formerly known as Red Bull Racing-TAG Heuer in 2017, this is the same cunty outfit but with a different title sponsor. Christian Horner still bitches and moans, and no one actually gives a gently caress. They employ a fetus and a smiley bogan to Go Fast.



Sahara Force India F1 Team
This is the team with the pink cars. They have two drivers who each seem to think they are #1 and usually provide for some interesting team conflicts.



Williams Martini Racing
Williams Martini Racing is the Official™ direct deposit account of pay drivers - ROI in the form of a Formula 1 seat. Stroll is their current "veteran" and is being partnered with Russian Formula 1 rookie Sergey Sirotkin. Follow them for the lols as the driver they should have hired, Robert Kubica, sits on the sidelines as a Test/Reserve Driver.



Renault Sport Formula One Team
Now entering their 4th year as the factory backed Renault effort, this is the make or break year. Driving alongside LeMans winner Nico Hulkenberg is Carlos Sainz Jr., son of rally legend Carlos Sainz. With his shot at a factory backed team, this is surely to encourage him to drive his rear end off - but will this get some good drives out of Hulkenberg?



Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda
2018 sees Toro Rosso as the new guinea pig team for Honda. During shakedown and testing they swear there are no issues with the Honda power plant, but who are we kidding, it’s gonna be poo poo come Australia.



Haas F1 Team
America’s F1 Team, they are still thinking they can turn a profit racing in Formula 1. Drivers are still a smelly Frenchman and some caveman looking dude. They buy parts off Ferrari and “build” their own cars. Probably another yawner of a year for them.



McLaren F1 Team Kimoa-Renault Formula One Team
The end of the 2017 season saw them switch engine suppliers from noted failures Honda to slightly less failures Renault. In this time, McLaren folded and is now known as Kimoa. Season looks to be promising as they retain the most gorgeous F1 driver ever, Fernando Alonso, and some bloke Strudel Vandoorne. Fernando is also now a 100% owner of Kimoa, formerly known as McLaren, and has Zak Brown permanently attached to his balls. With all these changes, could this be the year they finally see the top step of the podium again?



Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team
Previously Sauber-Ferrari, this new change in partnership will hopefully bring about a new dawn for the Sauber outfit and bring Formula 1 glory back to Italy, since Ferrari sure as poo poo can’t do it. Will this new partnership bring newfound performance and success to the Sauber team? Time will tell. Their car does look bad rear end though.
