And what about the contracts? Well, Ferrari’s got Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz for another year. McLaren’s not changing things up either, with Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri on board. Norris is set till 2025, and Piastri’s contract? Extended till 2026.

Alpine? They’ve still got Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon for 2024.
