Wonder the last placed team in the WCC by half way point would be because of the car or the driver line-up?

Toro Rosso could be strong in the midfield due to sharing it's back end features with Red Bull but would Kvyat / Albon not be good enough to justify the car's strength. McLaren's Norris / Sainz look to be a good set of team mates but the car may disappoint. Some teams like Alfa Romeo, Racing Point etc. will have bigger resources but would it be good enough given the fact both the lineups contain somewhat a weaker driver when compared to their illustrious teammates!

Tough question. I think last year it was arguably because of driver lineup - Williams probably didn't have a significantly weaker car than McLaren, but their drivers were unable to match Alonso (mostly) and Vandoorne.

There's two teams I give a good chance of seeing all the way at the back, and those are Toro Rosso and Williams. If Williams hasn't improved the car - but everyone else has - they'll wind up propping up the field, and it will be because of the car. On the other hand, I see Toro Rosso as having the weakest lineup, so if their competition don't develop weaker cars they're likely to end up last due to their lineup.

On the other side, I'll also make the bold statement that I believe the team with the strongest driver lineup will win the WCC.
