The Austrian, who owns a third of the Formula 1 team, announced the new agreement after a meeting with fellow shareholders Ineos and Mercedes-Benz.

The 52-year-old, who guided Mercedes to eight consecutive constructors’ championships from 2014 to 2021, announced the outcome to the Daily telegram: ‘Ultimately, as a shareholder, I want the best return on my investment. And the best return on your investment is winning.

“I’m not going to try to hold on to a position where I think someone will do a better job than me. I make sure I have people around who can tell me otherwise. Finally, the three of us decided, “Let’s do it again.”

It comes as the team confirmed on Monday that they will unveil their new 2024 car, driven by Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, on February 14 at Silverstone.
