After firmly establishing their reputation as Formula One's most dominant team, Mercedes, with 'Flying Finn' Valtteri Bottas now partnering Lewis Hamilton following the shock retirement of world champion Nico Rosberg, are attempting to seal a fourth consecutive constructors' title in 2017.
Underachieving giants Ferrari have emerged as favourites to end this stretch of relentless Silver Arrow rule following an impressive winter period and high-profile rule changes that will lead to faster cars. Last year's runners-up, Red Bull, will also hope to feature prominently provided there are no issues with their new Renault engine.
The likes of Force India, Williams, Toro Rosso and Renault should ensure that the midfield race remains intriguing all season long, while Sauber are looking to the future and Haas will be out to prove that their excellent debut campaign was no fluke.
McLaren-Honda remain dogged by reliability issues and basement-dwellers Manor Racing sadly ceased trading in January after administrators failed to find a buyer.
