Mercedes: Probably Hamilton/Russell, but loads depend here on how much Lewis actually extents, might even end in a Verstappen/Bottas pairing for example in one scenario. Should get more answers about this in the coming weeks when we know how long his extension will be
Red Bull: Certainly the target is to promote Tsunoda if he has a good enough rookie season, but if he doesnt Perez could spend another year there. Or if he disappoints maybe Gasly or Albon do get a chance again. Max leaving after taking his exit clause might also be an (albeit unlikely) scenario, in which case you would expect them to pair Perez with one of their juniors.
Renault: Alonso signed a multi-year deal. Ocon needs to up his game if he wants to be retained. Plenty of options for him. Gasly if he wants to get out of the RB circle? Hulkenberg as a known quantity? Bottas if he loses his Merc seat? One of the many Renault juniors?
Racing Point: Should be set.
Ferrari: Set. Though I wonder if Sainz' place is safe is Mick has a excellent rookie season, but he doesnt tend to have them.
Alpha Tauri: Loads of options here too. Again, a lot will depend on how the F2 season and Tsunoda's rookie season go. Plus whether Gasly is willing to play the team leader if they even want him.
Alfa: Hard time believing that Giovinazzi will survive another year, does Kimi want another year? Will the Ferrari connection still persist? If yes, Shwartzman should be hot favourite for one of the seats. Or their own junior Pourchaire, in case his rookie season in F2 is impressive enough. Perhaps a Renault young driver if they get a engine deal with them?
Haas: Should be set, unless Ferrari wants Mick desperate or Mazepin causes even more uproar.
WIlliams: Russell should be gone after 3 years. Latifi is probably here to stay. The 2nd cockpit probably goes to a driver with a lot of cash. Before he was linked with Red Bull there were rumours that Perez could be interested in this new project.
