The 2018 Formula 1 World Championship season is shaping up with calendar dates almost set and most driver line-ups for the various teams finalised.

Next year’s season is set to feature 21 races. although the Chinese Grand Prix has yet to be confirmed, with talk doing the rounds that the Shanghai race may be swapped with the Bahrain round.

Seven race seats remain to be filled, however it is expected that Lance Stroll will remain at Williams and Fernando Alonso likely to remain with McLaren.

Sauber may field two Ferrari young drivers Antonio Giovinazzi and Charles Leclerc, while at Toro Rosso, who will be powered by Honda for the first time, anything can happen.
