Red Bull announced today that Sergio Perez will be racing with them for two more seasons having extended his current contract up to the end of 2024.
The announcement comes fresh after Sergio Perez’ victory at the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix last Sunday, as the Mexican now sits third in the Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship 15 points behind teammate Max Verstappen, the Championship leader.
Perez said: “For me, this has been an incredible week, winning the Monaco Grand Prix is a dream for any driver and then to follow that with announcing I will continue with the Team until 2024 just makes me extremely happy.
“I am so proud to be a member of this Team and I feel completely at home here now. We are working very well together and my relationship with Max, on and off the track, is definitely helping drive us forward even more.
“We have built tremendous momentum as a Team and this season is showing that, I am excited to see where that can take us all in the future,” the Mexican concluded.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner commented: “Since joining Oracle Red Bull Racing, Checo has done a fantastic job. Time and again he has proved himself to not only be a magnificent team player but as his level of comfort has grown he has become a real force to be reckoned with at the sharp end of the grid.
“This year he has taken another step and the gap to World Champion Max has closed significantly, evidenced by his superb pole position in Jeddah earlier this year and by his wonderful win in Monaco just last weekend.
“For us, holding onto his pace, race craft and experience was a no-brainer and we are delighted that Checo will continue to race for the team until 2024.
“In partnership with Max we believe we have a driver pairing that can bring us the biggest prizes in F1,” Horner concluded.
