Confirmed teams for the 2010 season
Updated Sep 26, 2010

With four more races to go any of these top three teams: Red Bull Racing, McLaren or Ferrari can still claim the Constructors Championship. In the Drivers Championship five Drivers: Mark Webber, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button are still mathematically in with a chance to be crowned champion in 2010. Although if Webber continues to drive like he did at Singapore converting his worst qualifying position of the season into a well earned podium finish it is going to take some inspired driving on the part of the other four drivers to catch him.
