Verstappen's colleague extended: Monaco winner Perez will stay with Red Bull until 2024

Won in Monaco, turned the duel for the Formula 1 World Championship into a three-way battle and now has fresh confidence from his employer: things are going well for Sergio Perez. The Red Bull racing team is now making it public that the Mexican will drive for the ambitious team at least until 2024.

Sergio Perez has extended his contract with Formula 1 team Red Bull by two years until the end of 2024. The racing team announced the signature of the 32-year-old Mexican two days after his success at the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. Perez has been driving alongside world champion Max Verstappen for Red Bull since last year and has presented himself as one of the drivers in the best form in the field since his technical failure at the season opener in Bahrain.

After seven races this season, he is third in the overall standings behind Verstappen and Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc. His gap of 15 and 6 points respectively makes him a title contender in view of his improving form. With 110 Grands Prix already collected and 15 remaining Grands Prix, he is clearly on course to surpass his previous best values ​​from the previous year - fourth place in the World Championship and 190 points.

With his triumph in Monaco, the third Grand Prix victory of his career, Perez is now the most successful Mexican in the history of Formula 1. It was said that he had already signed his new contract before the race in the principality. Perez has improved again this year and "significantly reduced the gap to teammate Verstappen," said team boss Christian Horner. At the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, the 32-year-old was the first Mexican to secure a pole position in Formula 1.

Perez raved about an "incredible week" in the message. He now feels at home with Red Bull. The veteran from Guadalajara is already in his twelfth season in Formula 1. He was first hired by the Swiss Sauber team in 2011. This was followed by assignments for McLaren and Force India as well as its successor Racing Point, for which he sensationally won the Sachir Grand Prix in Bahrain in the penultimate race before moving to Red Bull and thus celebrated his first victory.
