2 replacements for Sergio Perez have been named, following Christian Horner’s admission of interest in Formula 1.

Following Christian Horner’s admission of interest in Formula One, two replacements for Sergio Perez were named.

At the conclusion of the 2024 season, Perez’s contract expires, and Horner, the team principal of Red Bull, has already stated that he will look into all of his driver options.

Red Bull, in Eddie Jordan’s opinion, ought to take into account elevating reserve driver Liam Lawson to compete alongside Max Verstappen in 2025.

The seat next to the Dutchman is currently occupied by Sergio Perez, but due to his poor play this year, many have questioned what will happen to him after his contract expires at the end of 2024.
And Red Bull won’t lack for options for the upcoming season.

There has already been “quite a bit of interest” from Formula One drivers, according to team principal Christian Horner. And former F1 team owner Jordan believes Lawson, who was passed over for an AlphaTauri seat for next season despite his impressive start to life in the sport, should be a strong candidate.

On his Formula For Success podcast, the Irishman said, “Lawson finishing 11th – and he just keeps doing it – in a car that really shouldn’t be there, scoring points in Singapore, and he’s on the case all the time.”.

Lawson should have a shot at Formula 1 because only one driver can win the championship.
And if you’re going to replace Checo [Perez], in my view, you should replace them with someone completely new who has a really promising future.

“I believe Lawson because, isn’t it, it’s the same kind of feeder team where [Sebastian] Vettel came from, and Lawson has that ability.
He ought to end up in Red Bull either the following year or the one after that, in my opinion.

Put Lawson in the car, Jordan added on the same podcast. Take that chance because there’s a chance you could create another Sebastian Vettel.
It’s really hard to imagine how Daniel [Ricciardo] will pull that off.
But hold onto Lawson—I think he’s really great.

In the event that that doesn’t work out, Jordan has another promising young athlete in mind that Red Bull ought to be keeping an eye on.
Additionally, he claimed to have received information about Oscar Piastri’s abilities long before the Australian driver ever competed in Formula 1.

I believe I had inside knowledge, just like usual, he said.
Johnny Herbert was managed by Ann Webber, Mark Webber’s wife, back in the late 1980s, and he had that connection to and understanding of Ann.
She was, in my opinion, the best and most competent manager of any athlete I encountered.

So Ann did warn me; she said, “Listen, I have to tell you, this guy is the real deal. And I believe he is the real deal; props to McLaren; they needed to sign him until 26 because he will be a highly sought-after driver.
He would be my first choice if I were Red Bull and considering replacing Checo.
