Hamilton will be sticking around with Mercedes until at least the end of next season!

George joined the Silver Arrows on a contract that’s been labelled as a long-term deal and has had a strong start to his first full  season with the team!

Contract Expires: 2028

This monster deal for Verstappen means he will remain at the team until at least 2028! If he sticks to his contract, it will expire when the 24-year-old is 30 🤯 





Contract Expires: 2024

Perez has had his contract extended until the 2024 season, which he accidentally let slip during the ‘cool down room’ with boss Christian Horner after his win in Monaco. “I probably signed too early,” Checo joked. 

Contract Expires: 2024

Charles has a solid contract with Ferrari until 2024.

Sainz extended his contract with Ferrari in April of this year, sticking with the team for an additional two years!

Daniel is obviously struggling but the team are sticking with him; his career has earned him that. He has a contract until the end of next year, with the option to end it early if he wants.

Contract Expires: 2022

Alonso is out of contact at the end of this season. Will Alpine keep him on for another year, or get F2 champ Oscar Piastri in the seat? 

Contract Expires: 2024

Alpine extended Ocon’s contract for another three years last season. He’s the perfect fit for them, a young French driver to market around. Esteban’s all set.

Contract Expires: 2022

Pierre had a brilliant season last year, and although this season hasn’t been quite the same, he’s still a real talent with so much potential. With Checo taking that second Red Bull seat until 2024, Gasly’s going to have to stick with the team or take a leap of faith in 2023.

Contract Expires: 2022

Yuki clearly did enough in the eyes of Red Bull to earn a contract for another year. Hopefully he can continue to learn and improve with the new era of cars with his contract due to expire at the end of this season.

Contract Expires: 2022

Seb was announced on a multi-year deal with Aston Martin which is expected to end at the end of this season. Will Vettel stay on for another few years with the Aston Martin team, or will he start to think about bringing his fantastic career to and end?

Contract Expires: Unknown

Unless Stroll has any big family fallouts, Lance looks set to stay for the future with his father Lawrence owning the team. 

Contract Expires: 2022

Nicky earned himself a third year at Williams alongside Alex Albon this season. He’s had a rocky start to the year and will need to pull out some spectacular performances over the next few months to convince Williams to keep him on from 2023! 

Contract Expires: 2022

Alex joined Williams for this season, but is still a part of the Red Bull family with Horner saying they could pinch Albon back from 2023 if he was needed.

Contract Expires: “Multi-year” deal at Alfa Romeo

The former Mercedes man joined Alfa Romeo for the 2022 season. Having the security of a multi-year deal is proving great for Bottas who is once again doing wonders in his machinery.

Zhou has got a one-year deal with the Alfa Romeo squad, but has had some standout moments in his rookie season so far. 

Contract Expires: “Multi-year” deal at Haas

K-Mag made an unexpected return to the Haas team this season. He’s not going anywhere either as the team have locked him into a multi-year deal.

Contract Expires: 2022

Schumacher signed a two year deal when he joined Haas in 2021, meaning he’s on his last year of his contract. After two big shunts so far this season, will his contract with the team be renewed for 2023?

  • Russell, Gasly and hopefully Schumacher (Ferrari will put him in the first available seat at Alfa) are the three most likely to make moves, although of those three, Gasly is the hardest to place because all the seats above him are locked out.

    • ฬ๏ยtєг 🇺🇦 says:

      Why would Russell move? He’s finally in that Mercedes seat and he’s beating Hamilton so far, so he’s in the best available seat atm. I think we are going to (finally) lose Latifi. He’s a nice guy, but he’s not F1 worthy. Whether that Williams seat will then go to De Vries or Piastri, kinda depends what Mercedes is going to do as they have indicated the intent of reducing the number of teams they want to supply with their engines. The seat of Ricciardo may also become available if he doesn’t improve his performance and that’s the seat that might be filled by Gasly. In that case we could see Albon return to AT and De Vries and Piastri both at Williams.

    • Chris Martin says:

      Russell will not be moving, I think Gasly’s best chance is to stay where he is, he is unlikely to get offered a better car and Schumacher would be best moved over to the DTM or possibly WEC, he is not F1 quality despite his name.
