Red Bull Racing re-signs Max Verstappen in longest deal to date
Oracle Red Bull Racing has signed Formula One 2021 World Champion, Max Verstappen, until 2028, in its longest deal yet.
The deal, which sees the 24 year-old Dutchman extend his current contract for another five years, is believed to be the longest in F1 history. The lucrative contract could reportedly earn him €50m a year.
Speaking about the new five-year-deal, Max Verstappen said: “I really enjoy being part of the Oracle Red Bull Racing Team, so choosing to stay to the 2028 season was an easy decision. I love this Team and last year was simply incredible, our goal since we came together in 2016 was to win the championship and we have done that, so now it’s about keeping the number one on the car long-term.”
