F1 2025 potential driver line-ups and contract situation

Here's a rundown of who will be racing where this season:

Red Bull: Max Verstappen's contract extends until 2028, making him the immovable rock at Red Bull. His teammate Sergio Perez's deal expires in 2024, leaving the second seat open.

Alpine: The French team will continue with their all-French line-up in 2024, with Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon both under contract until the end of the season.

McLaren: Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri have both inked a multi-year extension through the end of the 2026 season.

Haas: The American team retained Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg for 2024, with both contracts running until the end of the season.
