These are the confirmed drivers for the 2022 Formula 1 season

During the 2021 Formula 1 season, it is of course also time for the Silly Season. Which driver should pack his bags and who gets a chance at a bigger team? Every year it causes a lot of rumours. In this article, we list the drivers who are assured of a seat.

With the new regulations for 2022, it's important for teams to find the right lineup for the new season. With the completely new cars, it is important to have the right drivers in the car to develop it properly. Stability is important, but so is quality.

Opportunities with Red Bull and Mercedes

The top teams already have their number one drivers. Red Bull Racing has Max Verstappen and Mercedes has Lewis Hamilton. At Ferrari and McLaren, they even stick completely to the line-up they have for the 2021 season. The most interesting seats are the ones next to Max and Lewis. Who will join these two in the battle for the title?

It's mainly a matter of waiting to see what these two teams do before the ball starts rolling at the other teams. Valtteri Bottas, for example, is an interesting candidate for Williams and Alfa Romeo as a possible dropout from Mercedes, but the situation of Pierre Gasly and Sergio Perez will also be considered.

This is the confirmed line-up for the 2022 Formula One season:

Mercedes: Lewis Hamilton & TBA

Ferrari: Charles Leclerc & Carlos Sainz
