Sergio Perez he was the winner at the Sakhir Grand Prix last weekend. The Mexican pilot moved all the fans of the Formula 1, by taking a victory that was not in anyone’s plans, especially after finishing last on the grid. However, he showed that he can measure up to many riders on the grid. ‘Checo’ does not have a seat for the 2021 season and awaits the call from Red Bull.
After winning at Sakhir, several specialized media and Formula 1 fans began a strong campaign for Pérez to take the place of Alexander Albon for the next season. The Thai is not at his best, but from the Red Bull team they do not stop showing (publicly) that they will continue to strongly support his figure.
At the press conference prior to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Pérez confessed that he received a very significant call. The main advisor to the energy drink team, Helmut Marko, personally communicated with Sergio Pérez to congratulate him on his first victory in Formula 1. “It was nice to receive that,” said ‘Checo’ to the media present.
Red Bull’s decision
The Mexican driver stressed that the victory of the last weekend will not affect his future in the top flight. “Regarding any decision, I believe that what they say publicly is correct. They will make the decision sometime after the weekend. So I don’t know when that decision will be. So there is no longer a rush.
It’s the end of the year, and that’s where we are. So we waited so long that now one or two more weeks to know our decision, it doesn’t change that much. I am a strong believer in Formula 1, a race does not really change your life. What I have shown in the last ten years, weekend after weekend, year after year, always having ups and downs, but always reaching the end of the year with good results, “said the Racing Point driver to finish.
