Sergio Pérez has become an important driver for Red Bull thanks to his results throughout the Formula One season in 2022, and that led him to renew his contract with the Austrian team until 2024.
The driver from Jalisco is having a great time at Red Bull and he still does not see himself outside the team once his contract ends, but he does know that his path in Formula One will not end at that moment.
“I still have a contract until 2024, but I can’t imagine that I will finish my career then. I’m too young for that and I still have too much fun.” declared the man from Guadalajara to Sport Bild.
His career within the Great Circus began in 2011 and the achievements he has reaped have a very special meaning for him because of what they cost him so much.
“It takes time, but that’s the way it is. Formula One will be your life and you can’t leave that behind.”
Pérez has recently had problems with the RB18 due to the improvements that have been made to it, so adapting to the new way of driving has cost him, something that does not happen with his teammate Max Verstappen.
“At the beginning of the season I had top speed. Now we have further developed the car and it no longer adapts 100% to my driving style. I have to adapt because currently it suits Max and his style better”, finished.
Joins Vettel’s farewell
Sergio Pérez, as well as the rest of the Formula One grid, has issued a heartfelt message upon learning of the retirement of the German and four-time champion Sebastian Vettell.
“Happy retirement! I am so proud of you and proud of everything you accomplished in the sport. It’s time to enjoy family and life! shared the tapatío on social networks.
Similarly, in statements to the press from Budapest, Checo said he understood the reasons for the German’s withdrawal.
“It’s a very personal question. It influences how you feel and what you want to do, and your family,” he said. “You have other priorities and you don’t want to pay the price of being an F1 driver anymore. It’s something that comes with a price.”
