"Toro Rosso has always given me the best chances to perform every season and I’m super motivated and dedicated to repaying them with the best results possible next year. Toro Rosso has been improving year after year and it’s great to be a part of the journey.

"I’m very excited to see what we can achieve together in 2020.”

The team are seventh in the constructors' standings with two races remaining, just one point behind Racing Point in sixth.

"We’ve achieved great things together, like our podium this year in Germany, so I hope to deliver a very strong season again for this team next year. I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue in Formula 1 and I will give it my all to show the best possible performances next year.
