Sergio Perez secures future with Red Bull Racing

The Oracle Red Bull Racing team have confirmed that Mexican driver Sergio Perez, affectionately known as Checo, has signed a two-year contract extension with the Milton Keynes based outfit, continuing the partnership that has helped teammate Max Verstappen to three successive Drivers’ World Championship titles.

Perez, 34-years-old, has now secured his seat with the current Constructors’ World Champions until the end of the 2026 season, putting an end to all speculation that recent results for the Mexican driver could have cost him his seat with Red Bull.

The renewal of Perez’s contract puts an end to the hopes of multiple drivers – most notably outgoing Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz, and current Visa Cash App RB (VCARB) driver and former Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo – of securing the coveted second seat alongside Verstappen. Red Bull Racing have chosen to announce the news ahead of this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix, to put an end to all speculation heading into July and closer to the summer break.

Christian Horner said: “Now is an important time to confirm our line-up for 2025 and we are very pleased to continue working together with Checo.

“Continuity and stability are important for the team and both Checo and Max are a successful and robust partnership, securing our first ever one-two finish for the team in the championship last year.”

Perez, who so far in his career has achieved six race wins, five with Red Bull, and has helped the team claim the coveted Constructors’ World Championship in 2022 and 2023, and famously held off Lewis Hamilton in the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to help Verstappen to his first Drivers’ World Championship, said: “I am delighted to be staying here to continue our journey together and contribute to this team’s great history for two more years.

“”Being part of the team is an immense challenge, and one I love. We have a great challenge this year and I have full trust in the whole team that the future is bright here and I am excited to be part of it.”

Checo currently sits 5th in the Drivers’ Championship standings, with 107 points, only one behind Carlos Sainz, and now that his future is certain, all eyes will be on the Mexican driver to repay the faith to Red Bull, and continue their reign as Constructors’ World Champions.
