The Haas F1 Team would be hoping to benefit more from their association with Ferrari in 2018.But before all else we hope they sort out the recurring brake issues that have troubled their drivers McLaren-Honda After much hope from the iconic McLaren-Honda partnership of the 90s it was distressing to see them struggle to the extent that they did in 2017 Their nightmare partnership with Honda scored more grid penalties than World Championship points in 2017 — a season in which they seemed to go backwards from the progress made in 2016 They also had more double retirements (two) than double-points finish (one in Hungary) Ultimately McLaren had to choose between persisting with Honda or losing their star driver Fernando Alonso and of course they picked the double world champion While it remains to be seen how this decision goes the McLaren-Honda divorce has shuffled things up for 2018 Despite all their troubles the McLaren drivers Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne managed to make something out of nothing in 2017 Reuters McLaren’s ninth-place finish is worrying for the team It means lack of visibility lack of sponsors and lesser money from Formula 1 — all of which would affect McLaren’s racing business While persisting with Honda would have been the correct sporting call the business needed them to switch to a far more reliable and faster engine provider hence Renault Alonso’s claim that McLaren possibly had the best chassis on the grid might not be too ambitious but let’s see what 2018 holds Despite all their troubles the McLaren drivers managed to make something out of nothing Stoffel Vandoorne’s talent was evident and Alonso’s masterclass is still visible (his move against Massa in Abu Dhabi) Moreover McLaren have managed to sign the best talent on the grid — Lando Norris Let’s hope that by the time he’s ready for F1 McLaren are where they should be — the sharp end of the grid Sauber They managed to finish last for the second season in a row — the team that scouted talent such as Raikkonen and Massa in the 1990s seems to have lost their way The smartest move they made in 2017 was renewing their power unit supply partnership with Ferrari after almost switching to Honda Unlike 2017 where they used year-old Ferrari engines in 2018 the team will get the latest spec of the Ferrari engine Like Williams it would be good for old Formula 1 fans to see a competitive Sauber In 2018 there are rumours that Ferrari might up their involvement with the team (possibly with the Alfa Romeo brand) and we might see current Formula 2 Champion Charles Le Clerc and the 2016 GP2 runner-up Antonio Giovinazzi — Ferrari’s young drivers — at the wheels This could mean an unfortunate exit for Pascal Wehrlein while Marcus Ericsson who was the only driver to not score this season will be busy checking which other seat could his money help him buy Moreover a mid-season change in ownership could signal a glimmer of hope for the Swiss-based team Liberty Media The year 2017 was also a landmark year in the history of Formula 1 ushering in a new era with Liberty Media as the sport’s owners This was also Liberty Media’s first so-called season as owners of the sport While they are already making the right noises off-track it’s time to wait and watch how things change on track For starters how can Formula 1 have more wheel-to-wheel racing and the ability for cars to follow each other more closely and fight for positions The new logo points towards this direction now let’s hope the product lives up to the brand and logo’s promise Here’s to 2018 The Group ManagingDirector of the Global Fleet Group and Publisher of the National Mirror Dr Jimoh Ibrahim has been appointed the Honourary Consul of Sao Tome and
