2022 Drivers Line Ups
« on: August 27, 2021, 01:41:58 PM »
Some of the questions about next season's driver line ups are starting to be answered. We've had two announcements so far this weekend

1. Alonso stays with Alpine. Ocon has already signed on, so that locks up Alpine.

2. Perez stays with Red Bull. That settles RBR's pairing for 2022.

Ferrari and McLaren both have their current line up locked in for next year too.

Mercedes has Lewis, but the second seat is still up in the air.  I assume that decision will set the rest of the dominoes in play.  If you're an ambitious team with a shot at Botas or Russell, why lock in on someone else?

I'm a little surprised Williams went for Albon.  I thought for sure they'd grab a Mercedes backed driver.

I am glad for Alex though, I think he's just as skilled as any of the 'young guns', and getting out of the Red Bull meat grinder will be exactly what he needs

I haven't seen where Giovinazzi has been confirmed for next year
