1. Williams FW35
Of all the teams that finished outside the top 3 last season, Williams perhaps has the most reason to feel confident about 2013. Williams' 8th place finish in 2012 didn't reflect it's competitiveness through-out the season. In Pastor Maldonado, Williams has an incredibly talented lead driver, and a man who won a Grand Prix last season. If last year's criticism of the car was over-complexity, that has certainly been addressed for this season, with a simplified front wing and sidepods designed to create extra downforce.

The F1 2013 season is very nearly upon us, and the competing teams are starting to unveil the mechanical warhorses that their champions will be riding into battle...
We're warming our tyres in anticipation of the new Formula 1 season which starts this weekend. This is where the excitement starts, as the teams start to unveil their new cars for 2013. There has been little in the way of rule changes from last year, so don't expect any of this year's combatants to make wholesale changes. That said, a bit of tinkering can make the difference between a championship won and a championship lost. Take a look at who's sticking, and who's twisting for the 2013 Formula 1 season.
