BAHRAIN, BAHRAIN - FEBRUARY 23: (EDITORS NOTE: Image has been digitally retouched) The F1 drivers

For the first time in Formula 1 history, the grid for the coming season is exactly the same as the previous year with not one single driver change – but a repeat for 2025 is less likely with plenty of contracts set to expire and several teams looking to freshen up their line-ups. F1 Correspondent Lawrence Barretto casts his eye over those who will be available from 2025 and beyond…

World champion Max Verstappen is staying put at Red Bull until at least the end of 2028, while Mercedes have locked in Lewis Hamilton and George Russell until the end of 2025. McLaren also have Lando Norris until the end of 2025 and Oscar Piastri to the end of 2026. If Lance Stroll stays at his father Lawrence’s Aston Martin team, that leaves 14 driver contracts drawing to a close on December 31.
