Seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton will look to claim his eighth title this season, and break the record of seven which he currently ties with Michael Schumacher.

A refreshed Redbull driver lineup will look to stop that from happening, with Sergio Perez joining Max Verstappen. They will look to halt Mercedes who have won the championship consecutively for the previous seven seasons.

A familiar name is also returning to the paddock, Mick Schumacher, the son of seven-time champion Michael, takes up a seat at Haas for his rookie season.

Races at the Scarborough track are set to return this summer with four events.
