Red Bull Junior Joins Lawson in Pursuit of F1 Seat

Liam Lawson is often mentioned for next year.

No one knows yet if the Red Bull junior will get a shot at Visa Cash App RB. Sergio Perez‘s performance will play a big role, but Isack Hadjar is also in the running for an F1 seat.

Hadjar debuted in Formula 2 last year, finishing fourteenth. This wasn’t great, but this year he’s doing much better. After eight out of 14 weekends, he leads the standings by 16 points over Paul Aron. He even won the main race at Silverstone last weekend.

Horner Praises Hadjar

At Silverstone, Horner was asked about Hadjar’s chances for one of the four seats next year at Red Bull and Visa Cash App RB. The team boss said, “He’s doing a good job. He had a good weekend this weekend. Good to see both Isaac and Arvind Lindblad win the Formula 3 race this morning. Two outstanding talents that are coming through.” Fans might think it’s exciting to see new talent rising up!

So what are Hadjar’s chances? “There is always a chance,” Horner stated. The 19-year-old competes with Daniel Ricciardo and Lawson for one spot since Yuki Tsunoda has already extended his contract till 2025. If Arvind Linblad keeps performing well, he might be ready for an F2 seat soon; he’s currently second in the F3 championship in his debut year.

Meanwhile, during Britain’s first free practice session last weekend, Hadjar drove Sergio Perez’s RB20 and finished nineteenth—one-and-a-half seconds slower than Max Verstappen .

What do you think about all these young drivers aiming for F1 seats?
