F1 World Champion Max Verstappen Signs New Deal With Red Bull
Max Verstappen has committed his long-term future to Red Bull Racing.
The Formula 1 champion has signed an extension to his current deal that will keep him with the team until 2028.
The 24-year-old Dutch driver won his first title in dramatic fashion last year, beating out F1 veteran Lewis Hamilton under controversial circumstances.
“I really enjoy being part of the Oracle Red Bull Racing Team, so choosing to stay to the 2028 season was an easy decision,” said Verstappen on the five-year deal.
“I love this team and last year was simply incredible, our goal since we came together in 2016 was to win the championship and we have done that, so now it’s about keeping the number one on the car long-term.”
CEO and Team Principal Christian Horner echoed the ambitions and hopes of Verstappen.
“To have Max signed with Oracle Red Bull Racing through to the end of 2028 is a real statement of intent,” he said. “Our immediate focus is on retaining Max’s World Championship title, but this deal also shows he is part of the Team’s long-term planning.”
The deal is in addition to his current one which covered the 2023 season.
