Ferrari Begins Search for Carlos Sainz’s Potential Replacement at End of F1 2024 Season

Alex Albon emerges as the frontrunner for the seat

Although Leclerc has been linked to other teams, such as Red Bull and Mercedes, recent reports indicate that he is likely to extend his stay with Ferrari. However, the situation appears less certain for Sainz, who has been linked to several teams, including Audi, which is reportedly interested in signing him.

Audi is set to join the grid in 2026, but the company is gradually increasing its stake in Sauber as part of its preparations for a takeover. This opens the possibility for Sainz to potentially join Audi in 2025 ahead of their official entry into Formula 1.
