With 15 rookies, there is also plenty of fresh blood. This season, 19 teams use vehicles from seven brands. These include Audi, Bentley, BMW, Corvette, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche.
Among the rookies is the Porsche debutante Simona de Silvestro, who had a lot of bad luck in the opening race when she was turned over by a competitor lying on the podium.
