Jules Gounon will remain a Mercedes-AMG factory driver for three additional years after signing a new contract with the German manufacturer.

The Frenchman confirmed via a post on his personal social media on Saturday that the two parties had come to terms on a new, three-year deal.

“Tonight, I’m very proud and honored to announce that I’ve signed a new contract for the next three yeas as an exclusive factory driver for Mercedes-AMG,” Gounon wrote.

“The last two years have been amazing and I enjoyed every single moment with each member of our AMG family that have lead to these incredible successes.

“Thank you all for the support and I’m looking forward to see you back on track soon!”

Gounon joined Mercedes-AMG in 2021 on a two-year deal, signing on after Bentley Motorsport closed the doors of its GT3 program.

Since joining Mercedes-AMG, Gounon has secured overall victories in both the CrowdStrike 24 Hours of Spa as well as the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

He also locked up the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Endurance Cup title with Akkodis ASP alongside Daniel Juncadella and Raffaele Marciello this year.
