So with all 20 seats confirmed for 2023, let's have a look about the field in 2024.
I think it will be a boring silly-season as at least 9 drivers are confirmed for 2024.
Max Verstappen (contract to 2028)
Sergio Pérez (contract to 2024)
=> But it's not impossible Pérez has to leave the team as there are some troubles with Verstappen. Ricciardo could be in if Pérez retires.
George Russell (contract to 2023)
Lewis Hamilton (contract to 2023)
=> Both drivers are out of contract at the end of 2023 but it's said both will stay at Mercedes.
Charles Leclerc (contract to 2024)
Carlos Sainz (contract to 2024)
=> no changes expected.
Esteban Ocon (contract to 2023)
Pierre Gasly (contract to 2024)
=> Gasly is safe, it could be the last season for Ocon. Perhaps Nyck de Vries, Guanyou Zhou or an Alpine junior like Jack Doohan are possible drivers?
Lando Norris (contract to 2025)
Oscar Piastri (contract to 2024)
=> no changes expected
Valtteri Bottas (contract to 2023)
Guanyou Zhou (contract to 2023)
=> With the team's future as Audi works team it could be Mick Schumacher driving for Sauber in 2024
Lance Stroll (contract to 2023)
Fernando Alonso (contract to 2024)
=> Lance Stroll is driving as long as his dad is backing the team and Fernando is safe for 2024.
Kevin Magnussen (contract to 2023)
Nico Hülkenberg (contract to 2023)
=> I expect one driver to leave the team. Perhaps for Felipe Drugovich.
Alpha Tauri-Red Bull
Yuki Tsunoda (contract to 2023)
Nyck de Vries (contract to 2023)
=> Tsunoda could stay if Honda will renew the partnership with Red Bull. But I expect Tsunoda leave the team for a new junior driver like Dennis Hauger.
Alex Albon (contract to 2024)
Logan Sargeant (contract to 2023)
=> I expect both drivers to stay
So it could be this:
Red Bull: Max Verstappen - Sergio Pérez
Mercedes: George Russell - Lewis Hamilton
Ferrari: Charles Leclerc - Carlos Sainz
Alpine-Renault: Esteban Ocon - Pierre Gasly
McLaren-Mercedes: Lando Norris - Oscar Piastri
Alfa Romeo-Ferrari: Valtteri Bottas - Mick Schumacher
Aston Martin-Mercedes: Lance Stroll - Fernando Alonso
Haas-Ferrari: Nico Hülkenberg - Felipe Drugovich
Alpha Tauri-Red Bull: Nyck de Vries - Dennis Hauger
Williams-Mercedes: Alex Albon - Logan Sargeant
