Some of the biggest transfers were:
- Mark Webber will be replaced by Daniel Ricciardo. Webber will leave F1 for LMP1 racing with Porsche in the WEC.
- Sergio Perez has switched to Force India after losing his McLaren race seat to be replaced by junior driver and Formula Renault 3.5 champion Kevin Magnussen.
- Kimi Raikkonen returns to Maranello to replace Felipe Massa, who in turn will take up a team leading race seat with Williams reuniting a classic lineup of Brazilian drivers under the Williams logo.
- Nico Hulkenberg was finally announced at Force India after months of speculation and potential moves including Ferrari, Red Bull and Lotus.
