Max Verstappen commits long-term future to Red Bull with MEGA deal

Verstappen, 24, has been rewarded for beating Hamilton to the world title last year and it’s expected his new contract will see him remain a Red Bull driver until close to his 30th birthday.

Verstappen has always said he will remain with the Milton Keynes team if they delivered a machine capable of fighting for world titles.

Max Verstappen’s new contract will prevent Mercedes from targeting him as a replacement for Lewis Hamilton should the Briton retire at the end of his current deal in 2023 – as is widely expected.

Verstappen will begin his drivers’ championship defence later this month when the 2022 season starts in Bahrain on Sunday, 20 March.
