Oliver Bearman Formula 1 Haas Seat

British teenager Oliver Bearman is eyeing a potential seat with Haas in the upcoming 2025 Formula 1 season following his standout performance as a last-minute replacement for Carlos Sainz at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Bearman, who secured pole position in Formula 2 before stepping up to fill in for Sainz, impressed with a faultless drive, finishing seventh despite limited practice time.

With more than half of F1’s current grid facing contract uncertainties, Bearman sees an opportunity to secure a permanent seat next season. Having previously driven for Haas in practice sessions and with the team’s close ties to Ferrari, there’s optimism that a door could open for him in 2025.

Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton praised Bearman’s seamless transition to F1 machinery, highlighting his potential as a future star. Bearman will continue as Ferrari’s reserve driver for the upcoming Australian Grand Prix, with optimism surrounding Sainz’s recovery and return to the track.
