The team has recognised Perez’s contribution with the reward of a new contract. Rumours flew round the paddock that the deal had already been done when Perez was heard to say “Maybe I signed too early,” to Christian Horner on their way to the Monaco podium on Sunday.
Whether signed before or after the win, the team has confirmed that the deal is now done.
“For me, this has been an incredible week, winning the Monaco Grand Prix is a dream for any driver and then to follow that with announcing I will continue with the Team until 2024 just makes me extremely happy,” said Perez.
“I am so proud to be a member of this Team and I feel completely at home here now. We are working very well together and my relationship with Max, on and off the track, is definitely helping drive us forward even more. We have built tremendous momentum as a Team and this season is showing that, I am excited to see where that can take us all in the future.”
“Since joining Red Bull, Checo has done a fantastic job” said team boss Horner. “Time and again he has proved himself to not only be a magnificent team player but as his level of comfort has grown he has become a real force to be reckoned with at the sharp end of the grid.
