The 1996 Formula One World Championship is almost upon us. On March 10th in Melbourne Australia, 11 teams and 22 drivers will attempt to challenge for the 1996 FIA Formula One title at the new Albert Park circuit. This guide is an attempt to rate the chances of each team and driver combination for my readers. Constructor and driver ratings refer not to the very best or worse, but there assumed championship position.

Scuderia Ferrari (1,2)

Mild Seven Benetton-Renault (3,4)

Rothmans Williams-Renault (5,6)

Marlboro Mclaren Mercedes (7,8)

Equipe Ligier Gauloises Blondes (9,10)

Total Jordan-Peugoet (11,12)

Red Bull Sauber-Ford (14,15)

Arrows-Hart (16,17)

Tyrrell-Yamaha (18,19)

Minardi-Ford (20,21)

Forti Corse-Ford (22,23)

These are my predictions for 1996. I thank you for the support over the past months and look forward to your continued readership over the coming Formula One season.
