Max Verstappen Extends Red Bull Contract Until 2023

Max Verstappen has signed a new contract with Red Bull until 2023, the Formula One team announced on Tuesday. The 22-year-old Dutchman's deal was due to expire this year, and he had been earmarked as a potential candidate to replace Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes if the six-time world champion, also out of contract at the end of the season, moves to Ferrari. But Verstappen, an eight-time Grand Prix winner, has now committed his long-term future to Red Bull.
