The 2019 Formula 1 World Championship is the 70th running of the FIA’s premier single-seater series, and here is the confirmed entry list for the 21-round schedule.

The season begins in Australia on March 17, and finishes with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 1. The third round, the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai on April 14, will be the 1000th world championship F1 race.

The entry list features Lewis Hamilton defending his title with Mercedes and bidding to become the sport’s second-ever six-time F1 champion – plus a raft of wholesale driver changes up and down the grid.

Former world champion Kimi Raikkonen moves from Ferrari to Sauber, switching places with Charles Leclerc.

Seven-time grand prix winner Daniel Ricciardo defects from Red Bull to Renault, replacing Carlos Sainz who moves to McLaren in place of Fernando Alonso. Pierre Gasly steps up from the Toro Rosso team to Red Bull, and is replaced by the returning Daniil Kvyat.

Robert Kubica also rejoins the F1 grid, after a much longer absence of eight years, with Williams.

An influx of rookies is led by Formula 2 champion George Russell, who will partner Kubica. F2 runner-up Lando Norris replaces Formula E-bound Stoffel Vandoorne at McLaren, while third-placed F2 racer Alexander Albon has been favoured at Toro Rosso over Brendon Hartley.

Antonio Giovinazzi, who started two races for Sauber in 2017, gets his full-time graduation with the renamed Alfa Romeo Racing squad – replacing Marcus Ericsson, who will instead race in IndyCar.

Lance Stroll has moved from Williams to Racing Point at the expense of Esteban Ocon, after his father Lawrence bought the team – formerly known as Force India – last August. It is expected to have another name change before the season begins.

Red Bull Racing switches to Honda engines for 2019, joining its sister team Toro Rosso.

How Red Bull endured its second car crash in two weeks

OPINION: Red Bull was justified to be upset that Lewis Hamilton survived his British GP clash with Max Verstappen and went on to win. But its attempts to lobby the FIA to reconsider the severity of Hamilton's in-race penalty were always likely to backfire, and have only succeeded in creating a PR disaster that will distract from its on-track efforts

The ‘screaming’ F1 engine future that may not be out of reach

OPINION: It wasn't just the Verstappen/Hamilton clash that had the Red Bull and Mercedes bosses at loggerheads at Silverstone, with the nature of Formula 1's 2025 engines also subject for disagreement. But hopes to have loud, emotive engines that are also environmentally friendly don't have to be opposed.

OPINION: Changes to the layout of Abu Dhabi’s circuit aim to reverse the trend of insipid Formula 1 races there - the promoter has even described one of the new corners as “iconic”. And that, argues STUART CODLING, is one of this venue’s abiding failings
