F1 drivers who are out of a contract at the end of 2023
The world of Formula 1 is constantly changing, and one of the most exciting parts of each season is seeing which drivers will be staying with their teams and which ones will be moving on. As the 2023 season gets underway, fans and experts alike are already looking ahead to the end of the year, when a number of big-name drivers will be out of contract. Will they stay with their current teams, or will they move on to new challenges? In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at some of the drivers who are facing uncertain futures and speculate on what might be next for them.
Number 1. Lewis Hamilton
Initially, it seemed like Lewis Hamilton’s contract renewal with Mercedes for the 2024 season would be a smooth process, with many indications pointing towards an agreement being reached before the start of the season. However, as a few months have passed, it has become apparent that the situation may not be as straightforward as initially assumed. Hamilton will have to contend with a problematic Mercedes car that does not appear to provide him with the opportunity to compete for his eighth World Championship title. While there is little reason to be concerned about Hamilton’s future with the team, his recent criticism of Mercedes after the Bahrain Grand Prix may only add fuel to the rumors surrounding his potential retirement.
