Mexican Sergio Perez will race for Red Bull through the 2026 season after signing a two-year extension to his contract, the reigning Formula One champions announced on Tuesday.

Perez, 34, finished second overall to triple world champion teammate Max Verstappen last season — the first time the team had landed a campaign one-two — but is currently fifth after eight races.

The announcement ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal this weekend silenced speculation about who would partner Verstappen next year.
