The 2018 F1 drivers' market: where do we stand?

Slowly but surely, the 2018 drivers' market is starting to take shape. Ferrari confirmed in Belgium that it's line-up would remain intact, while all signs point to Mercedes extending Valtteri Bottas contract. With the top three teams pretty much settled, we take a look at Formula 1's rank and file, and how the game of musical chairs could unfold when the music stops.

MERCEDES

Confirmed: Lewis Hamilton

TBC: Valtteri Bottas

Mercedes has yet to confirm Valtteri Bottas, but we'll bank on that happening in the coming days, rather than weeks. The Finn is a solid asset for the Silver Arrows outfit, and the perfect wing-man for Lewis Hamilton.
