Just two days after clinching his first Monaco Grand Prix victory, Sergio Perez has more to celebrate with confirmation that Red Bull is retaining him alongside Max Verstappen until 2024.
The Mexican joined Red Bull last season and took one victory – in Azerbaijan – and four further podiums on his way to fourth in the drivers’ championship.
He’s stepped it up a gear this season, with three second-place finishes to add to his Monaco win, and that leaves him third in the standings, just 15 points adrift of leader Verstappen.
We can't wait to see what else Checo has in store with Red Bull! 💪

“Since joining Oracle Red Bull Racing, Checo has done a fantastic job,” said Red Bull boss Christian Horner. “Time and again, he has proved himself to be a magnificent team player, but as his comfort level 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. The gap to World Champion Max has closed significantly, evidenced by his superb pole position in Jeddah earlier this year and his incredible win in Monaco just last weekend.
