Liam Lawson could be the next Sebastian Vettel

Red Bull Racing can secure a successful future by simply swapping Sergio Perez for Liam Lawson, the rookie who has been impressing in F1 this year in the Alpha Taura as a replacement for the injured Daniel Ricciardo, according to the team's former F1 boss Eddie Jordan. Despite his successful performances in F21 races, the 1-year-old New Zealander did not get the opportunity to be a regular driver for the coming season, as Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda will continue to race for Alpha Tauri. But Jordan believes Red Bull should fire Perez and put Lawson in the car. "Already next year, or the year after, I should land at Red Bull," the Irishman is convinced. "They should take the risk and get Lawson in their car because they have the opportunity to create the next Sebastian Vettel. I find it hard to believe that it will be in

The Red Bull Racing team has denied the possibility of Liam Lawson racing for the Williams team in 2024, but more likely a racing seat awaits him in 2025, when he could become Max Verstappen's teammate. The 21-year-old Lawson impressed in his role as reserve driver when he jumped into the car of Daniel Ricciardo, who was injured in practice for the Dutch GP. But Red Bull's links with Honda and signed contracts have left the New Zealander in the role of reserve driver for Red Bull and Alpha Tauri teams, which could change in 2025. "Williams probably won't take the driver for a single season," Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said of the possibility of a move to Williams, explaining that there was no way Lawson would win a seat at Alpha Tauri. "All these racers are Red Bulls sitting in the race
