Driver-Team Changes

The 2012 season had 12 teams competing, but this year there are only 11. Reason being, Hispania Racing (HRT F1) was up for sale but could not find a buyer before the specified deadline. Quite a few teams are pinning their hopes on new drivers that have come in for the current season. Here are the changes.

Lewis Hamilton moves to Mercedes

Sergio Pérez moves to McLaren Mercedes

Nico Hülkenberg moves to Sauber

Adrian Sutil comes in again for Sahara Force India

Charles Pic moves to Caterham

Esteban Gutiérrez debuts in F1 for Sauber

Valtteri Bottas debuts in F1 for Williams

Esteban Gutiérrez debuts in F1 for Sauber

Max Chilton debuts in F1 for Marussia

Jules Bianchi debuts in F1 for Marussia

Giedo van der Garde debuts in F1 for Caterham


Regulation Changes

These are the rules that have been altered or brought into effect for the 2013 racing season.
  1. With 22 cars competing, 6 get eliminated in Q1, 6 more in Q2, while the remaining ten have a shoot out for the top places on the grid.
  2. Due to safety issues, Drag Reduction System (DRS) will be included at 2 zones on every circuit.
  3. Cars need to be able to return to the pits on their own power during qualifying.
  4. Due to cost-cutting measures introduced, mid-season testing will not be allowed.
  5. All teams do not pay the same entry fee for the season. Teams that scored more points during the 2012 season pay more.
  6. Double DRS has been banned.
  7. 2013 will be the final season with the 2.4 liter V8 engine. Next year onward, F1 cars will run on the 1.6 liter turbocharged V6 engine.
