While some drivers have contracts that extend beyond 2024, others will be using the 2023 season to showcase their skills and secure their place in the sport. Out of the 20 drivers on the grid in 2023, only 12 have confirmed their spots for 2024. Here is a breakdown of each team and which drivers have secured their places for 2024:

Red Bull:Max_Verstappen-and-Sergio_Perez.jpg

Max Verstappen: Verstappen has the most secure position on the grid, with a contract until the end of the 2028 season.

Sergio Perez: Although Perez's position should be secure like Verstappen's, tensions and the arrival of Daniel Ricciardo as a third driver have made his spotless confirmed. However, Red Bull is currently sticking with him, as he signed a new contract before the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix, where he won.

Ferrari:Charles-Leclerc-and-Carlos-Sainz.jpg

Charles Leclerc: Leclerc committed his future to Ferrari in December 2019 with a five-year deal. Both he and Ferrari hope he will have at least one championship title by the end of his current contract.

Carlos Sainz: Sainz secured his future with Ferrari by signing a new contract in April 2022. His deal is set to expire at the end of the 2024 season.

Alpine:Esteban-Ocon-and-Pierre-Gasly.jpg
Esteban Ocon: Ocon received a three-year deal from Alpine after showing improved performance in 2021. The team has placed faith in him, considering the uncertainty of the other seat.

Pierre Gasly: Gasly moved from AlphaTauri to Alpine in 2022 and secured a two-year deal. There is also an option for a one-year extension if Gasly impresses.

McLaren:Oscar-Piastri-and-Lando-Norris.jpg

Lando Norris: Norris decided to commit his future to McLaren, believing in their potential to win races and fight for championships. He signed a contract until the end of the 2025 season.

Oscar Piastri: Despite being a rookie, McLaren gave Piastri a two-year deal to avoid a situation similar to what happened with Alpine. The team is likely to keep faith in him, but as Daniel Ricciardo's predecessor, Piastri knows the team is not afraid to make changes.

Alfa Romeo:Valtteri-Bottas.jpg

Valtteri Bottas: Sauber, without Alfa Romeo as their partner, will have Bottas in their car for the first season. Bottas signed a multi-year deal with the team in 2021, deviating from the usual one-year contracts he had at Mercedes. The identity of Bottas' 2024 teammate is uncertain, as Zhou Guanyu's contract is set to expire at the end of the 2023 season. Zhou may continue if he performs well, but new owners Audi may have a say.

Aston Martin:F1_Aston_Martin_Fernando-Alonso+Lance-Stroll.jpg

Fernando Alonso: This could be the final contract of Alonso's remarkable career, as he is set to race his last season in 2024. However, if Aston Martin continues to progress, he may delay his retirement.

Lance Stroll: Stroll's position in Aston Martin is largely due to his father owning the team. It is expected to see him on the grid again in 2024.

Williams:Alexander-Albon.jpg

Alex Albon: Impressed by his first season back in the sport, Williams rewarded Albon with a contract until the end of the 2024 season. His 2023 teammate, Logan Sargeant, hopes to join him, but his deal is currently limited to his rookie season.
