Racing Point team principal Otmar Szafnauer, whose team will become Aston Martin next season, unsurprisingly confirmed this week on a Canadian radio station that Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll will again be the pairing in 2021.
Here GPFans gives you the rundown as to who is driving where and which seats remain open.
Both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas are out of contract at the end of this season. It appears inevitable Hamilton will re-sign a new deal, leaving Bottas to again fight for his place. Mercedes has been linked with Vettel, while promoting George Russell is also an option open to boss Toto Wolff.
Leclerc now has a long-term contract in his pocket through to the end of 2024 as Ferrari are pinning their future on the 22-year-old Monégasque. The Scuderia took little time to confirm Vettel's replacement, handing Carlos Sainz a two-year deal.
In January, Red Bull confirmed Verstappen had signed a contract extension through to the end of 2023, ensuring they have a champion-in-waiting on their books for the next four seasons. Alex Albon enjoyed a superb debut season last term, earning his promotion from Toro Rosso for the second half. He will need to run Verstappen close this year to ensure he retains his seat for '21
Sainz's departure naturally came as a surprise, in particular, given his remarks last term as to how he felt 'at home' with McLaren in his first year with the team. The Spaniard's exit, however, paved the way for McLaren to recruit seven-time race-winner Ricciardo from Renault. His partnership with Norris, who is contracted for next year, should provide some laughs, as well as strong results.
Renault - Esteban Ocon/?
Ricciardo's decision to leave the French manufacturer has now opened up a vacancy that Vettel could potentially fill, although the team is still an ongoing project and has yet to even claim a podium place over the past four seasons since its return. Fernando Alonso has also been touted to step out of retirement and rejoin, but again does the two-time champion want the hassle of trying to build up a team? Ocon is seen as the future after signing an initial two-year deal.
AlphaTauri - ?/?
There is always a difficulty in trying to predict this line-up until it is announced given the Red Bull hierarchy's penchant for promoting from its junior development programme. Daniil Kvyat and Pierre Gasly currently occupy the seats, and it is likely they will retain them if both perform well given the talent pool is thin on the ground, with only Estonian Jüri Vips showing any promise.
Aston Martin Racing - Sergio Perez/Lance Stroll
Perez, who has been with the team since 2014, is contracted through to 2022, with the sponsorship he brings with him one of the key reasons behind his longevity. Szafnauer's announcement confirming Stroll for next season was inevitable given his father Lawrence's influence. There remains a belief he will continue to make progress.
Both Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi are out of contract at the end of the year. Could whatever campaign transpires this year be the Finn's swansong? You would assume, if he has the appetite, the team would love to retain him. Giovinazzi's path to Ferrari has now been blocked, and while Mattia Binotto may still have faith in the Ferrari junior, his place is far less secure.
This is the fourth year of the Kevin Magussen/Romain Grosjean pairing. At present, there are no guarantees the team will continue beyond this season as team owner Gene Haas has yet to indicate his plans. If Haas remains, will it finally be time to bring in fresh blood?
Mercedes junior Russell is contracted through to 2021, yet he will obviously have his eye on replacing Bottas at Mercedes. It will all be a question of timing for Mercedes and whether they will feel he is ready to make the jump. Nicolas Latifi is his team-mate this season, and without a wheel yet turning in anger, it is impossible to comment on his future prospects, although the funding he has brought with him will assist his cause.
