Motor Sport News - - F1 Preview: Teams -

The spot­light at the start of the 2015 sea­son was firmly placed on Max Ver­stap­pen. The 17-year-old was the youngest driver to make his F1 de­but and there were plenty of ques­tions as to whether the F3 grad­u­ate was up to it. Forty-nine points later, and the ques­tions were an­swered.

Rookie team-mate Car­los Sainz was able to ply his trade away from the gaze of the head­lines and did just as im­pres­sive a job with seven points-pay­ing drives.

A switch from Re­nault to a year-old Fer­rari unit might seem like a step back but, in re­al­ity, it could well be an im­prove­ment in per­for­mance.
