Following a superb start to the 2022 season, Sergio Perez has penned a two-year contract extension with Red Bull Racing.

Despite taking a win at Baku, Checo had struggles adapting to the Red Bull last year. However, he has come on leaps and bounds in 2022 as the car Red Bull has built for the new regulations clearly works better for him.

The 32-year-old grabbed his first pole position in F1 earlier in the season at the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix. He followed that up with podiums in Australia, Imola and Spain.

Last weekend, he saved his best for 2022 so far, though. Helped by great strategy calls, Perez drove a magnificent race in Monaco to win one of the most iconic events in motorsport. After seven races, he’s P3 in the standings and only 15 points off championship leader Max Verstappen.

It turns out Checo gave the news away as he was heard joking with Christian Horner just after the race on Sunday, saying that he “probably signed too early”.

Official confirmation came from the team this afternoon.

“Since joining Oracle Red Bull Racing, Checo has done a fantastic job. 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. This year he has taken another step and the gap to World Champion Max has closed significantly, evidenced by his superb pole position in Jeddah earlier this year and by his wonderful win in Monaco just last weekend. For us, holding onto his pace, race craft and experience was a no-brainer and we are delighted that Checo will continue to race for the team until 2024. In partnership with Max we believe we have a driver pairing that can bring us the biggest prizes in F1.”

“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. 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.”
