Formula 1 starts its 2014 world championship season Sunday with the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park with a new engine — a turbocharged V6 and limits on how much fuel teams can use during a race.

Both will have big time effects on the racing.

The Sun’s Dean of Speed looks at all 11 F-1 teams grading them on drivers and pre-season testing:

1. FERRARI

Drivers

Fernando Alonso

2013 stats

  • Wins: 2
  • Poles: 0
  • Fastest laps: 2
  • Points: 242

Kimi Raikkonen

2013 stats

  • Wins: 1
  • Poles: 0
  • Fastest laps: 2
  • Points: 171

There are many in the F-1 travelling circus who believe Ferrari erred when it welcomed back Kimi Raikkonen into the Tiffosi fold as a teammate to Fernando Alonso.
