Red Bull raised eyebrows with its decision to switch from engine partner Renault in favour of Honda for 2019. However, ground has been gained in the past 12 months, with the latest power unit earning praise – in public, at least – from team principal Christian Horner. As such, drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly head to Melbourne with cautious optimism. We’ve yet to see Verstappen in title-winning machinery, but his form towards the end of 2018 suggests that he’s ready for it.

Our verdict: Despite a positive pre-season test, it’s too early for a Red Bull-Honda title challenge. And new boy Gasly will have his work cut out against Verstappen
