Testing hasn’t started, a wheel hasn’t been turned in 2017, it’s a new aero era, none of the cars have been revealed and Lewis Hamilton hasn’t even decided what colour his snapback is going to be in Melbourne. Still, the teams are going have targets already for next season right? Here are realistic targets for each F1 team in 2017.

  • Will the top three remain the top three?
  • How will Williams cope with the changes, can they challenge top three?
  • Can Force India mount a challenge or will they struggle to hold 4th?
  • McLaren – Can they afford another season of midfield obscurity?
  • Will Haas start well and then fall back?
  • Will Renault look like a works team or flop?

View our gallery below to find out what each team’s pre-season targets should be ahead of the 2017 season.

Obviously, 2017 testing could change anything. Something miraculous could happen! There could be a fairytale season up ahead similar to the magnitude of the Leicester City story in the Premier League. We can’t wait to see Sauber fighting it out with Haas for the World Championship!

Ross Brawn believes that whatever the running order in 2017, the gaps will be bigger between each car. The ground Red Bull have been gradually making up to Mercedes will vanish with the reset button, and whoever has the advantage early on will surely keep it in the opening part of the 2017 season.
