The FIA has published the official entry list for the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, with a few points of note. The entry lists 18 of the 20 drivers with the only gaps being the second Red Bull and the second AlphaTauri, which means that Mercedes has entered Lewis Hamilton, even if there has yet to confirmation of a new contract. Of the rest, it is worth noting the numbers for the new boys with Fernando Alonso (14), Nikita Mazepin (9) and Mick Schumacher (47). It is anticipated that Scuderia Alpha Tauri will nominate Yuki Tsunoda in place of Daniil Kvyat at some point. In reality the driver nominations are not that important as they can be altered up until the Thursday before the first race next year.
In terms of the entries, nothing has changed with Renault Sport Racing Limited remaining on the list although the team name will be “Alpine F1 Team”. Racing Point will officially be known as Aston Martin BWT F1 Team, which confirms that the BWT sponsorship will continue. The chassis names are similarly as expected with Alpine and Aston Marton replacing Renault and Racing Point and there is no change with the engines.
The full list is as follows:
