Max Verstappen has extended his contract with Red Bull for another six years after the 2022 season.
Max Verstappen has negotiated a big contract extension with Red Bull, which will keep him at the squad until 2028.
The Dutchman had already agreed to stay with the team until the conclusion of the 2023 season, but his contract has been extended for another five years.
Following his debut World Championship victory in 2021, Verstappen praised the Milton Keynes-based team.
“I love them so much. I really, really enjoy working with them, since 2016. But this year has been incredible,” Verstappen remarked after winning the championship in Abu Dhabi.
“To my team, I think they know I love them. I hope we can do this for 10 to 15 years together. There’s no reason to change, ever. I want to stay with them for the rest of my life. They love me.”
F1’s most recent long-term deal
With his contract extension, Verstappen now has the longest current contract on the grid.
Lando Norris is right behind him, having recently reached a contract with McLaren that would keep him with the squad until the end of 2025. Meanwhile, Charles Leclerc has a contract with Ferrari that runs until the end of 2024.
Throughout his Formula One career, Verstappen has been a Red Bull driver. He debuted on the grid in 2015 with the Toro Rosso junior squad, and was promoted to the main team in 2016.
Verstappen made his Formula One debut in the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix, becoming the sport’s youngest world champion.
After a tough battle with Lewis Hamilton in 2021, he went on to win 19 more races and become World Champion for the first time.
