While Lewis Hamilton has committed to Mercedes and Formula 1 for at least two more years, Sergio Perez has expressed doubts about whether Red Bull is the right place for him long term.
Edd Straw, Glenn Freeman and Josh Suttill debate developments in the driver market in the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

They also discuss everything else going on around F1 this week, from the relief that we’re not going into another cost cap controversy to Andretti’s interestingly-timed rebrand.
