‘Richly deserved’ – Fans react as Sergio Perez signs contract extension with Red Bull until 2024

Table of Contents

Earlier on Tuesday, Red Bull confirmed that their Monaco GP winner Sergio Perez will stay with the team until 2024.

Only a few days after winning the Monaco Grand Prix, Sergio Perez has landed himself a contract extension with Red Bull until 2024. The Mexican driver has now been confirmed on a new two-year deal with Red Bull Racing after he joined the Milton Keyes-based team in 2021.

Perez had actually hinted that he had signed a contract extension on Sunday itself. After the 3rd F1 race win of his career, the veteran was caught on camera joking that he had “probably signed too early” with team boss Christian Horner chuckling at that.

Nevertheless, after Red Bull confirmed the news on Tuesday, several fans on social media were quick to react to the statement. Perez joined Red Bull last season and finished fourth in the driver standings, which was the highest he ever finished in a season. The 33-year-old won the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, scored four podiums, and played an integral role for his teammate Max Verstappen, who won the Drivers’ championship last year.

A third commented, “Just days after his third win in Formula 1, Checo gets a contract extension. Superb stuff from the best Mexican driver ever”. This is great news for the team and the driver as well. Here are some more reactions to the news:
