Frenchman Esteban Ocon (26) is under contract until 2024. Alpine is still looking for its second driver, after the surprise announcement of Fernando Alonso’s departure for Aston Martin. The French team notably targets the Frenchman Pierre Gasly, currently under contract with AlphaTauri.

The Finn Valtteri Bottas (33) has a « multi-year » contract. Zhou Guanyu (23), the first Chinese in F1, is under contract until the end of 2022.


Dane Kevin Magnussen (29) has signed for « several years » from 2022. German Mick Schumacher (23), son of Michael, is under contract until the end of 2022. His future in F1 beyond is threatened.

Alpha Tauri

Frenchman Pierre Gasly (26) and Japanese Yuki Tsunoda (22) are under contract until the end of 2023. But Gasly therefore remains courted by Alpine for the 2023 season. If the Frenchman leaves the team, AlphaTauri could, according to the specialized press, turn to the 27-year-old Dutchman Nyck de Vries, world champion of Formula E (electric) in 2021.

Aston Martin

The Spaniard Fernando Alonso (41) has signed a contract for several years and will replace the German Sebastian Vettel (35), who is retiring at the end of 2022. He will team up with the Canadian Lance Stroll (23), son of owner Lawrence Stroll, under contract for 2023.


Thailand’s Alexander Albon (26) is under contract for 2023. Canadian Nicholas Latifi’s (27) contract expires at the end of 2022 and Williams is reportedly looking for a replacement. The 21-year-old American Logan Sargeant, engaged in Formula 2 and reserve driver for Williams, would be particularly targeted.
