Lewis Hamilton retains his race number of #44 - rather than the world champion's #1 - for 2015 as three rookies join the grid.

The FIA introduced driver numbers in 2014, with each driver being able to select their preferred number for the rest of their career rather than having it allocated to them based on the team's finishing position in the previous year's championship. The world champion gets to choose between having the traditional #1 on their car - with their career number saved for them - or retaining their selected number.

The full list of drivers and their numbers for the 2015 F1 season is as follows:

Mercedes

#44 Lewis Hamilton#6 Nico Rosberg

Red Bull#3 Daniel Ricciardo#26 Daniil Kvyat

Williams#77 Valtteri Bottas#19 Felipe Massa

Ferrari#5 Sebastian Vettel#7 Kimi Raikkonen

McLaren#14 Fernando Alonso#22 Jenson Button

Force India#27 Nico Hulkenberg#11 Sergio Perez

Toro Rosso#33 Max Verstappen#55 Carlos Sainz Jr

Lotus#8 Romain Grosjean#13 Pastor Maldonado

Sauber#9 Marcus Ericsson#12 Felipe Nasr

Manor and Caterham remain on the FIA entry list subject to confirmation
