Lawson is set to continue as the Red Bull reserve driver for the 2024 season, but there are rumours that he secured this position with the condition of a guaranteed race seat for 2025.
However, the fast-paced nature of F1 means that a guaranteed seat for Lawson in 2025 is not certain. With new young talents emerging each year, Lawson may face tough competition and could potentially be pushed down the pecking order despite his impressive performances.
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner also expressed his thoughts on Lawson following the announcement of the contract extensions at AlphaTauri.
Despite admitting that Lawson had 'turned some heads', he said the team would keep developing him in a reserve role.
Horner explained: "There are no guarantees of anything in life. He's done a great job – he's really impressed us.
"He's done exactly what we could have asked for in terms of grabbing the opportunity in Daniel's absence to really show his capability.
"That's turned some heads and it's done him a lot of good. We'll keep developing him when he goes back into that test and reserve role and he'll be a candidate, certainly, for 2025.”
