First Kimi Raikkonen back to Ferrari and then Nico Hulkenberg back to Force India.

The 2013 F1 championship has just been wrapped up with the awards being given earlier this month but the spot light is now on the driver market.

Sebastian Vettel has Daniel Ricciardo as his teammate at Red Bull with Mark Webber choosing to hang his steering wheel.

The 24-year-old Australian who drove for Torro Rosso, Red Bull's B team has made the same career mobe that German Vettel made some years ago. But the difference is the four-time champion had a race win under his belt when he moved but Ricciardo is still to impress.

Ferrari have two world champions in their stables as Kimi Raikkonen returns to the team where he won his only title back in 2007 which was techically Ferrari's last drivers title. The team has struggled ever since Fernando Alonso arrived and have been unable to add titles.

The Alonso-Raikkonen pairing promises to be explosive and has many fans waiting to see what will happen in the scarlet team and if they can challenge Vettel who will be seeking his fifth title in 2014.

Force India also has seen Nico Hulkenberg return to the team as Sergio Perez will be his teammate which was announced by the team recently.

Felipe Massa has moved from Ferrari to Williams, Adrian Sutil will race at Sauber.

The musical chairs are still on with four more seats up for grabs. Jenson Button will be at McLaren but his teammate is still uncertain. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at Mercedes are the only teammates who are unchanged from 2013 to 2014.

Lotus will see Pastor Maldanado joining Romain Grosjean in 2014.

The new rules and new teammates may add to the spice of F1 in the coming season.
