Carlos Sainz believes that a decision on his future for 2025 could be some way off being finalised, with the Spaniard stating that the situation is not progressing quickly amid continued moves in the driver market.

Two further seats for next year’s grid have been confirmed in recent weeks; Nico Hulkenberg’s switch from Haas to Kick Sauber was announced prior to the Miami Grand Prix, while the news arrived ahead of this weekend’s race in Imola that Alex Albon has signed a multi-year contract extension with Williams.

Sainz’s destination, meanwhile, remains unknown, with the 29-year-old left without a seat in 2025 given the impending arrival of Lewis Hamilton. Asked ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix when news of his future might be expected, Sainz responded: “When I have it, you’ll know.”

Pushed further on whether the announcement is still a long way off, he added: “I think so, yeah. It’s not moving too quick.”
