Formula One: Max Verstappen signs new contract with Red Bull until 2023January 8, 2020
- Max Verstappen has signed a new contract with Red Bull until 2023, the Formula One team announced on Tuesday.
- 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.
