Turning 23 in 2020, it seems a long time since he burst onto the scene as a precociously talented 17-year-old. In six years, he has developed into a genuine title contender.
Red Bull will be hoping for just that. And the team will be buoyed by the commitment of their increasingly mature star driver until the end of the 2023 season, scuttling rumours that the Dutchman would be lured away to Mercedes or Ferrari.
It will take a huge effort from the team and Honda to contend for the title, but Red Bull has shown itself to be very adept at building race-winning cars following major regulation changes, so it will be looking to 2020 and beyond with confidence.
Even without a title, more race wins will validate Verstappen’s re-signing and justify his confidence in the team’s future.
