Given its glitz and glamour, it is little surprise that the Formula One off-season is beginning to mirror the football transfer window. Speculation, rumour and conjecture has dominated the 117 days since Nico Rosberg was crowned world champion in Abu Dhabi, with changes littered across the grid ahead of the new campaign.

Only a handful of teams have retained the same driver line-up from 2016, while Manor F1 are no-one after ceasing trading having failed to find a buyer. There are new faces in the form of Pascal Wehrlein and Canadian Lance Stroll, who partners Felipe Massa who has returned to the sport just weeks after retiring.

Even behind the scenes there have been alterations. James Allison has moved to Mercedes and Paddy Lowe is now behind the scenes at Williams. There are even new owners, with Liberty Media removing Bernie Ecclestone from the F1 hotseat. But how do each of the 10 teams line-up for the new term. IBTimes UK guides you through the grid.
