Lewis Hamilton, the defending World Drivers' Champion and current championship leader
Mercedes is the defending World Constructors' Champion and current championship leader

The 2016 Formula One season is the 67th season of the FIA Formula One World Championship, a motor racing championship for Formula One cars which is recognised by the sport's governing body, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), as the highest class of competition for open-wheel racing cars. Teams and drivers are scheduled to take part in twenty-one Grands Prix—making for the longest season in the sport's history—starting in Australia on 20 March and finishing in Abu Dhabi on 27 November as they compete for the World Drivers' and World Constructors' championships.[1]

The 2016 season saw the grid expand to twenty-two cars with the addition of the Haas F1 Team entry.[2] Renault returned to the sport as a constructor after a four-year absence following their takeover of Lotus prior to the start of the season.[3] The calendar has similarly expanded, with the return of the German Grand Prix. The European Grand Prix was also revived, with the event visiting a new circuit in Azerbaijan.[1]

Lewis Hamilton started the season as the defending Drivers' Champion for the second year running, after winning his third World Championship title at the 2015 United States Grand Prix.[4] His team, Mercedes, started the season as the defending Constructors' Champion, having secured its second championship title at the 2015 Russian Grand Prix.[5] After thirteen races, Hamilton leads the Drivers' Championship, nine points ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg, while Mercedes leads the Constructors' standings by one hundred and eighty one points.

Team changes[edit]

Gene Haas, founder of NASCAR team Haas CNC Racing (top), entered a new team in 2016 (VF-16 pictured bottom).
Lotus (E23 Hybrid pictured top) were purchased by Renault (RS16 pictured bottom).
  • Haas F1 Team, a team formed by NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team owner Gene Haas, joined the Formula One grid, becoming the first American team to compete since the unrelated Haas Lola team competed in 1986.[21][N 1] The team uses power units supplied by Ferrari and a chassis developed by Dallara.[23][24] Dallara last participated in Formula One as the chassis manufacturer for HRT in 2010.[25]
  • Marussia applied for their team name to be changed to Manor Racing, a request granted on 19 January 2016.[26] The team switched from Ferrari to Mercedes power,[27] with the team upgrading to a 2016-specification engine after having used a year-old Ferrari engine in 2015.[28] The team underwent a management reshuffle following the resignation of team principal John Booth and sporting director Graeme Lowdon.[29]
  • Red Bull Racing formally ended their nine-year partnership with engine supplier Renault at the end of the 2015 season,[30] with the team citing the lack of performance from the Renault Energy-F1 2015 engine as a leading factor in the change.[31] The team continued using Renault engines, however they were rebadged as TAG Heuer. Team principal Christian Horner named Renault's partnership with Mario Illien and his company Ilmor as a reason for staying with the manufacturer.[32]
  • Renault returned to Formula One as a full factory-supported team after they purchased Lotus from Genii Capital,[33] the venture capital firm they had originally sold the same team to in 2010, and supplied engines to up until the end of 2014. Lotus's participation in the 2016 season was in question pending the resolution of a High Court case brought against the team by HM Revenue and Customs over unpaid PAYE tax.[34][35]
  • Sauber underwent a change in ownership in the week prior to the Hungarian Grand Prix, with the team being purchased by Longbow Finance.[36] Despite the acquisition and the retirement of team founder Peter Sauber, the team will continue to use the Sauber identity.
  • Scuderia Toro Rosso returned to using Ferrari power units, as they had done prior to the start of 2014, after Renault announced that they would no longer supply customer engines.[10][37] The team uses the 059/4 power unit used by Ferrari teams in 2015[38] after Ferrari received approval from the World Motor Sport Council to supply year-old engines on the grounds that the extensive revisions to the engine design meant that they would not be able to manufacture additional 2016 specification engines in time for the start of the season.[citation needed]

Calendar changes[edit]

Formula One visited Azerbaijan for the first time in 2016 for the revival of the European Grand Prix. The race was run on a street circuit in the capital, Baku.

New and returning races[edit]

  • The European Grand Prix returned to the calendar after a four-year absence. The race was moved from its previous home in Valencia to a brand-new street circuit in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. It was the first Grand Prix held in Azerbaijan.[64][65][66][67]
  • The German Grand Prix returned to the Hockenheimring after the event was cancelled in 2015 when a venue could not be secured.[62] The circuit had previously hosted the race in 2014 as part of their agreement with the Nürburgring to alternate between venues, with the Hockenheimring hosting the race every even-numbered year.

Date changes[edit]

Failed race bids[edit]

  • The Grand Prix of America was set to be held for the first time at the Port Imperial Street Circuit in New Jersey, in accordance with a fifteen-year contract.[68][69] The race was originally scheduled to début in 2013, but has been delayed for four consecutive years.[69]
  • Following a dispute over taxation, the Indian Grand Prix was removed from the calendar after the 2013 race. After several failed attempts at reviving the race in 2014 and 2015, the event's return was deferred until the 2016 season;[70] however, it was once again left off the final calendar for the season.[1]
  • In 2006, Formula One Management signed a seven-year contract to run the Korean Grand Prix at the Korea International Circuit beginning in 2010. However, the event was discontinued in 2014, and was omitted from the calendar for the third consecutive season in 2016.[71]

Rule changes[edit]

General changes[edit]

  • The FIA and Formula One Management will be granted greater power to change the Sporting and Technical regulations and to make decisions affecting the governance of the sport.[72]
  • From the Monaco race weekend onwards, the FIA allowed drivers to choose alternative helmet designs for one race weekend per season,[73] a practice previously prohibited as drivers were required to wear the same design to make them more recognisable to spectators and television audiences.[74]

Technical regulations[edit]

  • Cars were required to be designed with a separate wastegate for exhaust gases to pass through in a bid to increase the noise of the cars following criticism since the introduction of the 2014 generation of engines.[75]
  • The FIA has opted to increase the number of tokens available for power unit development starting in 2016. While the initial plans would have given manufacturers fifteen tokens for the season, the number was raised to thirty-two, the same number as 2014, in order to allow struggling manufacturers such as Renault and Honda to improve their development. This decision also allows further development on parts that were initially planned to be closed off, including the upper and lower crankcase, valve drive, crankshaft, air-valve system and ancillaries drive.[76]

Sporting regulations[edit]

  • Starting in 2016, the number of pre-season tests were reduced from three to two.[77]
  • The FIA formally increased the maximum events allowed in a season from 20 to 21 to accommodate the calendar's approval.[78]
  • Tyre supplier Pirelli introduced a seventh tyre compound known as "ultrasoft",[79] with the manufacturer stating that they would only be available on street circuits.[80] Pirelli further changed their approach to tyre supply in 2016, bringing three dry compounds to races instead of two. The compounds are made public two weeks before each event.[81][82][83] Pirelli assigns two "choice" compounds, and a third set (the softest available regardless of Pirelli's selection) are given to teams reaching Q3. Drivers select their remaining ten tyre sets for the event between the three compounds and must use two dry compounds during the race.[78]
  • The stewards were given greater powers in enforcing track limits, with drivers required to stay between the white lines marking the edges of the circuit, except in cases of driver error.[75] The change was introduced after an investigation by Pirelli into Sebastian Vettel's high-speed blow-out at the 2015 Belgian Grand Prix that concluded that Vettel's off-track excursions had been a significant factor in the incident.[citation needed]
  • Any driver who causes the start of the race to be aborted will be required to start the race from pit lane at the restart.[75]
  • The procedure for issuing gearbox penalties was amended so that penalties are applied in the order that they are awarded, bringing the system in line with the wider grid penalty system.[75]
  • The Virtual Safety Car system is to be used in practice sessions as well to avoid the unnecessary use of red flags and session stoppages.[82]
    • The rules governing the use of the drag reduction system, which is deactivated when under Virtual Safety Car periods and full-course yellow flags, were amended to make use of the device available as soon as a Virtual Safety Car period has ended;[82] drivers previously had to wait two laps before the system was reactivated.[84]
  • The qualifying process was heavily revised two weeks before the season began. The three-period format first introduced in 2006 was retained, but with a progressive "knock-out" style of elimination.[85]
    • Following widespread criticism of the format at the opening rounds,[86][87][88] the format was abandoned after two races, and the system used between 2006 and 2015 re-introduced at the Chinese Grand Prix.[89]
  • The stewards' powers to monitor pit-to-car communications were broadened for the 2016 season, with race control able to monitor the radio feeds for each driver in real time and consult with engineering advisors to further monitor the content in a bid to crack down on driver coaching and the use of coded messages.[90]
    • Following a series of controversial penalties at the British and Hungarian Grands Prix and extended debate over the application of the rules, the FIA relaxed the restrictions on radio-communication, introduced at the start of the season, to the formation lap only ahead of the German Grand Prix.[91]
  • The process new drivers go through in order to qualify for a superlicence will be changed,[92] with additional restrictions—including the requirement that drivers complete eighty percent of two seasons from a series outside a recognised points-paying championship[93]—put in place as part of the wider FIA Global Pathway.[94][95] The new points system was retroactively applied, with all results for all eligible drivers automatically qualifying for superlicence points.[93] The changes were introduced following controversy surrounding Max Verstappen qualifying for a superlicence at the age of sixteen after a single season competing in European Formula 3.[94]

Season report[edit]

Pre-season[edit]

For the second year in a row, Hamilton decided not to exercise his option of switching his car number to 1, as was his prerogative as reigning World Champion, and would instead race with his career number 44.[11] A pre-season tyre test was held at Circuit Paul Ricard in France in January, conducted by Pirelli to evaluate their wet weather tyres.[96] Due to the specific nature of the test, it did not count towards the official pre-season testing allowances.[citation needed] The first pre-season team test was held a month later at the Circuit de Catalunya.[97] Ferrari were fastest on three of the four testing days,[98][99][100] with Nico Hülkenberg topping the time sheets for Force India on the third day.[101][102] A second test, also in Barcelona, was conducted on 1–4 March.[97] Ferrari ended the two tests with the best time set overall on the newly introduced ultra-soft tyres, while Mercedes covered the most distance in testing, almost 5,000 km (3,100 mi).[103][104] The second four days of testing also saw the teams examine a proposed feature for driver head protection, dubbed the "halo".[105]

Opening rounds[edit]

The season started with the Australian GP, and featured the newly introduced elimination-style qualifying format. This format was heavily criticized by teams, drivers, fans and the press, to which the decision was taken to review the format before the next race. The Australian GP ended with a 1–2 finish for Mercedes with Nico Rosberg taking victory from Lewis Hamilton in second. Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari finished on the last remaining step of the podium, but team-mate Kimi Raikkonen retiring with a turbo failure on lap 21. On lap 16, whilst attempting to overtake Esteban Gutierrez in the new Haas F1 car at turn three, Fernando Alonso crashed at high speed into the outside barrier before barrel-rolling and land upside-down against the barrier. Gutierrez ended up in the gravel trap with terminal read damage, and quickly went over to Alonso who managed to exit his cockpit unaided. Due to the huge amount of debris caused by the accident the race was red flagged, with the cars subsequently lining up in the pitlane. Romain Grosjean finished an impressive sixth in the other Haas and they became the first new (and "from scratch") team to score points in their inaugural race since Toyota did so in 2002. At the next race in Bahrain, Alonso was ruled out of taking part on medical grounds and was later revealed to have suffered broken ribs and a pneumothorax as a result of the previous race's collision, and was replaced by rookie Stoffel Vandoorne. Following the widespread criticism of the new qualifying format, the teams voted to abandon it and revert to the system used in 2015. However, in the week before the race weekend, the sport's Strategy Working Group and over-ruled the teams in order to keep the elimination style for 2016. After qualifying, the system once again came under heavy fire with Hamilton pole position followed by Rosberg and then Vettel. The race saw Rosberg take his second consecutive victory of 2016 followed by Raikkonen and Hamilton, respectively. The Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel and the Renault of Jolyon Palmer retired before the race started with Engine and Hydraulics failures, respectively. Following a first-lap collision with Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas was penalised and given two points on his licence, a subsequent third would result in a ten-place grid penalty. At the next Grand Prix in China, the elimination style qualifying format was permanently dropped in favour of the previous format used between 2006 and 2015, this yielded Nico Rosberg's first pole position of the year after Hamilton suffered a number of setbacks both in qualifying and during the race itself, eventually finishing in seventh place, with his team-mate taking his sixth consecutive victory and third of the 2016 season. The race finished with no retirements, a feat that has only been achieved six times.[106] The next race in Russia featured a number of incidents on the first lap with Vettel and Kvyat getting involved again as in China, but this time Kvyat hit Vettel two times forcing Vettel to retire. Rosberg won the race with his team mate Lewis Hamilton finishing second after starting 10th and Rosberg achieved his first grand slam and extended his championship lead going into the European races. Before the race in Spain, Daniil Kvyat and Max Verstappen swapped places with Kvyat going to Toro Rosso and Verstappen to Red Bull. The start of the race saw Hamilton and Rosberg collide after Hamilton went to the grass and hit his team mate, handing the lead to Daniel Ricciardo. The race also saw the youngest race winner as Max Verstappen won the Grand Prix, defending against Kimi Räikkönen after Red Bull committed Ricciardo to an additional pit stop.

Max Verstappen became the youngest ever winner in Formula One when he won the Spanish Grand Prix.

First in-season test[edit]

The first in-season team test was held on 17 and 18 May at the Circuit de Catalunya, immediately after the Spanish Grand Prix. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel was fastest on the first day of testing, ahead of Nico Rosberg of Mercedes and Jenson Button in the McLaren.[107] Williams chose to use to experimental aerodynamic rear and front wings during the test, which although outside the legal specifications for the current season, provided increased downforce which they can use in the development of their 2017 car once new regulations have been brought in.[108]

Mid-season rounds[edit]

At the next round in Monaco, Ricciardo took the first pole position of his career, but was unable to convert to a race win after the team made a costly error during his stop. The race started behind the safety car. As a result, Lewis Hamilton inherited the lead and went on to win the race, his first of the season. Ricciardo finished second ahead of Sergio Pérez. Hamilton then went on to win the Canadian Grand Prix after losing the lead to Sebastian Vettel at the start, but reclaimed the position with a one-stop strategy while Vettel and Ferrari committed to two stops. Valtteri Bottas finished third, his first podium of the season. Rosberg won the returning European Grand Prix with his second grand slam of the season and of his career, ahead of Sebastian Vettel and Sergio Pérez, while Hamilton finished fifth after struggling with a software issue that limited his engine's ability to harvest energy.[109] Hamilton took pole position at the next round in Austria while Rosberg started sixth after a grid penalty. The two drivers followed opposing strategies to be first and second after the pit stops, with Hamilton on the preferred racing tyre gradually catching Rosberg. The two made contact as Hamilton tried to pass Rosberg on the final lap; Hamilton won the race, while Rosberg broke his front wing and finished fourth behind Verstappen and Räikkönen. A stewards' inquiry found that Rosberg had caused an avoidable collision, and handed him a ten-second penalty, though the race result was not affected. Hamilton reduced the deficit to Rosberg to a single point at the next round in Great Britain, where difficult conditions saw the drivers contend with a drying circuit and varying grip levels. Hamilton established an early lead, while Rosberg and Verstappen fought over second place. Rosberg prevailed, but suffered a critical fault with his gearbox late in the race. Mercedes instructed him to reset the gearbox and to avoid using seventh gear or else risk a catastrophic failure, which prompted an investigation by the stewards for providing him with assistance. Rosberg was ultimately penalised for the radio call, having ten seconds added to his race time, which demoted him to third behind Verstappen.

Second in-season test[edit]

The second in-season team test took place at the Silverstone Circuit, immediately after the British Grand Prix. Several teams took part with rookie drivers,[110][111][112] though Sauber did not attend in order to "consider cost effectiveness".[113][114] Fernando Alonso finished fastest on the first day, while Kimi Räikkönen was fastest on the second. Pascal Wehrlein drove the 2014 Mercedes car, testing 2017 tyre components and materials for Pirelli, while Pierre Gasly and Red Bull tested the Halo cockpit protection system developed by Ferrari despite team principal Christian Horner's criticism of the device.[115][116]

Second half of season[edit]

Lewis Hamilton took the championship lead from Nico Rosberg at the next round in Hungary, leading another Mercedes 1–2 finish to gain a six-point lead in the Drivers' Championship standings. The Grand Prix was marked by controversy: Rosberg secured pole position on a drying circuit in qualifying after McLaren's Fernando Alonso spun in front of him necessitating a double waved yellow flag. Although race stewards confirmed that Rosberg had slowed, he nevertheless secured pole with his lap time. The race saw Jenson Button fall afoul of new restrictions on pit-to-car communications that demanded that any car with an issue serious enough to require the intervention of the team be pitted or retired. Button reported a brake issue – which was later revealed to be a faulty sensor – and was penalised for unauthorised assistance.

In light of the controversy surrounding pit-to-car communications, the FIA repealed all regulations for the next round in Germany. Hamilton further consolidated his championship lead, beating Rosberg off the line at the start; for his part, Rosberg was caught by the Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen and was unable to pass them. Rosberg's race was further complicated by a time penalty for an aggressive pass on Verstappen that forced the Red Bull driver wide. However, Hamilton remained pessimistic about his position as championship leader, as with nine races left in the season, he was anticipating at least two ten-place grid penalties for exceeding his engine allocation.

With Mercedes opting to take a series of grid penalties to build up a stockpile of components, Hamilton was forced to start the next race in Belgium from the back of the grid. He took advantage of first-lap contact between Vettel, Räikkönen and Verstappen to work his way through the field before a heavy accident involving Kevin Magnussen at Eau Rouge forced the race to be temporarily stopped. When the race resumed, Nico Rosberg led the race until the chequered flag, while Hamilton ultimately finished third after being unable to catch Daniel Ricciardo. Further down the order, Verstappen was subject to increasing criticism over his driving standards after being caught in several incidents with Räikkönen and Sergio Pérez, while Esteban Ocon finished sixteenth on début for MRT.

Results and standings[edit]

Daniel Ricciardo took the first pole position of his career in Monaco.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ An American-registered constructor known as US F1 was accepted to the grid in 2010, but the team collapsed before the start of that season.[22]
  2. ^ Although the Manor Motorsport team shares a name with Manor Racing and was established by former Manor Racing personnel, the two teams are separate entities.
  3. ^ In the event that two or more drivers achieved the same best result an equal number of times, their next-best result was used, and so on. If two or more drivers achieved equal results an equal number of times, the FIA would have nominated the winner according to such criteria as it thought fit.[117]
