The F1 grid for the 2023 season is taking shape with many of the teams already announcing their driver line ups for next year.

AlphaTauri announced Pierre Gasly will remain at the team back in June. With Red Bull deciding to keep Sergio Perez for a further two seasons, it was only a formality for Gasly.

In late September, AlphaTauri confirmed that Tsunoda will stay at the Faenza-based outfit for a third F1 season. 

Perez will remain alongside reigning F1 champion Max Verstappen, who signed a lucrative new contract with Red Bull that lasts until the end of 2028.

The deal is understood to be worth €50m (£40m), keeping him with the team for another six years.

Ferrari will have Charles Leclerc alongside Carlos Sainz in 2023, with the latter signing a contract extension prior to this season.

Mercedes have George Russell tied down to a long-term deal, while seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton is contracted until the end of 2023.

Outside of the big three, McLaren have Lando Norris tied down until 2025 but Daniel Ricciardo will leave the team prematurely.

Esteban Ocon will be with Alpine until 2024, but will have a new teammate because Fernando Alonso has departed to join Aston Martin.

Alpine swiftly announced that their reserve driver Oscar Piastri would replace Alonso, only for Piastri to deny he has signed for the team, sparking a messy contractual tug-of-war

This tug-of-war was finally settled during the Dutch GP weekend, with McLaren coming out on top, announcing Piastri as their driver for 2023.

Lance Stroll’s continuation at Aston Martin, alongside Alonso, has been formally confirmed.

Valtteri Bottas has security at Alfa Romeo with the Finn signed until the end of 2024.

Similarly, Kevin Magnussen has a multi-year deal following his shock return with Haas who also have Mick Schumacher.

Williams have retained Albon on a multi-year deal, but the future of Nicholas Latifi is unclear.
