Verstappen to stay at F1’s Red Bull until 2023

Max Verstappen has signed a new contract with Red Bull until 2023, the Formula One team said yesterday.

The 22-year-old Dutchman’s deal was due to expire this year, and he had been earmarked as a potential candidate to replace Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes if the six-time world champion, also out of contract at the end of the season, moves to Ferrari. But Verstappen, an eight-time Grand Prix winner, has now committed his long-term future to Red Bull. The move follows Charles Leclerc’s signing of a five-year contract extension with Ferrari last month. Verstappen, who finished third in the drivers’ championship last season, tweeted: “Very proud and happy that @redbullracing will stay my home until 2023. We started this journey together and they have supported me from day 1.” He added: I want to win with Red Bull and our goal is, of course, to fight for a world championship together.”
