Pressure Mounts on Perez to Secure Future at Red Bull Amidst Challenges and Comments
Sergio Perez has been taking on the formidable Max Verstappen, who is often hailed as a generational talent. While 2023 may be perceived as one of Perez’s more challenging seasons alongside Verstappen, especially after a promising start, it’s essential to recognize that the Mexican driver’s performance has held its own.
Fernando Tornello, a commentator for ESPN Latin America, provided insights into the dynamics within Red Bull. He noted, “Max Verstappen is a driver who consistently exceeds 10 points, and Checo Perez typically scores between 8 and 9 points, which is commendable for a driver. There have been championship-winning drivers with lower points than what Checo Perez can achieve. Checo faces stiff competition within the team, and beating Verstappen is a formidable challenge, but Checo has managed to outperform him in a few races.”
