Horner wouldn't be surprised if drivers remain where they are for 2021

The 2019 season has only just finished, yet many people are already making predictions about how the 2021 drivers line-up will look. Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Boss Christian Horner has admited that he wouldn't be surprised if many of the drivers remain where they are.

There has been much talk of potential switches in the coming years involving Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, due to their contracts being at a stage where they will need renewing.

"He is very happy with this team and we like him in the team, he fits very well here", Horner told Motorsport.com when talking about Verstappen's future.

"I think the contracts of all top riders will expire next year, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if everyone stays in place at the end of the song.

Whilst there have been some changes for 2020, with the likes of Esteban Ocon earning a seat, there haven't been loads of overhauls from this seasons grid.

"I think Charles Leclerc has a current contract with Ferrari. Lewis is clearly very happy in his current environment and the same goes for Max."
