Because, suggests The Gazzetta dello SportSergio Perez may have been sidelined by Racing Point, but he shouldn’t have to leave Formula 1 just yet. The newspaper sees him as a logical candidate for Alfa Romeo, the team he already came out for when it was still on the Formula 1 grid as Sauber. He would then become the teammate of Mick Schumacher, who, aided by Ferrari, would make the step to the top class after two seasons in Formula 2.
Ferrari would have the same construction in mind for Haas F1. We have known for a while that both current drivers, namely Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, have to fear for a seat, just like the drivers themselves. Magnussen, however, would be just a little more firmly in the saddle than his French teammate.
It would therefore not be entirely clear whether they want to keep Magnussen in the car, or let the young Russian Robert Shwartzman make his debut, who as a teammate of Schumacher is also very successful in Formula 2. Should the team take that gamble, undoubtedly whispered by Ferrari, he will have the experienced Nico Hulkenberg next to him as a teammate, the German who would return to the sidelines after a year, according to the newspaper.
If we are to believe the publication, just like in 2019, a lot of promising Formula 2 drivers could enter Formula 1. Red Bull and Honda junior Yuki Tsunoda also has a good chance of a seat at AlphaTauri, which then again at the expense of Daniil Kvyat.
