After we heard Sergio Perez drop a hint he’d signed a new contract at Red Bull over the weekend, the recent Monaco race winner has now confirmed a new deal with the team lasting until 2024.
Checo joined Red Bull for the 2021 season, managing a win at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix for the Red Bull squad within the first few races. He also proved a great help in aiding teammate Max Verstappen to his first F1 Drivers’ Championship last year.
Winning the Monaco Grand Prix is a dream for any driver and to celebrate my first victory there with this announcement that I will continue with @redbullracing until 2024 is just the icing on the cake. #NeverGiveUp pic.twitter.com/dWL9MYVIhk

He’s been on another level so far this season, managing to secure his third F1 victory in the Monte Carlo principality just a few days ago.
Sharing the news after his special win at the weekend, Checo called the contract extension the “icing on the cake”.
