The 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship is an ongoing motor racing championship for Formula One cars and the 72nd running of the Formula One World Championship. It is recognised by the governing body of international motorsport, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), as the highest class of competition for open-wheel racing cars. Drivers and teams are competing in twenty-one Grands Prix for the World Drivers' and World Constructors' championship titles. Lewis Hamilton is defending his World Drivers' Champion title, after winning his fourth championship at the 2017 Mexican Grand Prix. His team, Mercedes, is the defending World Constructors' Champion, having secured their fourth consecutive title at the 2017 United States Grand Prix. After eight rounds, Hamilton leads Sebastian Vettel in the World Drivers' Championship by fourteen points. Daniel Ricciardo is third, a further thirty-five points behind. In the World Constructors' Championship, Mercedes leads Ferrari by twenty-five points, with Red Bull Racing third. A new cockpit protection device—commonly known as the “halo”—became mandatory starting in 2018. The introduction of the halo in Formula One was the first stage of a planned roll-out that would see the device adopted in all FIA-sanctioned open-wheel racing series by 2020.
