Sergio Perez is starting to make it very difficult for Red Bull not to give him a new deal for 2025 after he secured his third second place in four races in Japan – but several others have been linked with the drive. So, what’s the current state of play and who will be in that seat next year?

What does the future hold for Perez?

Perez, who joined Red Bull for 2021, has a contract that runs up until the end of the current campaign. By his own admission, he endured a challenging season in 2023 as he battled to get to grips with the RB19, the Mexican winning two races to his team mate Max Verstappen’s 19.
