The new adventure companion of Max verstappen it is confirmed. Sergio Perez He will be the one who is next to the Dutch in 2021, and all eyes will be focused on this fight. There is a phrase that always resounds in the paddock of the Formula 1, and that is very important for the drivers: «The first rival on the track is your teammate». It is for this reason that Verstappen will have his great rival next year.
The Dutchman was the only pilot on the grid who faced him Mercedes throughout the season. While they weren’t the only winners of the year (Pierre Gasly in Monza and Pérez in Sakhir), the fight for the victories was always Verstappen’s thing, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas. The other Red Bull, driven by Alex albon he was always far from the top positions.
Fight for the title
The constructors’ championship of the 2020 season was not even. Mercedes kept the crown by a huge difference, while Red bull was second. Such was the advantage of the German team, that Lewis Hamilton added more units than both cars of the Austrian structure. “Hopefully we can, with a car a little more competitive from the start, make it a little more interesting and difficult for them to make decisions,” said Verstappen.
Fight with partner
On the other hand, the Mexican will be a great partner for Verstappen. However, he will also be the first to have the tools to go toe-to-toe with him. “We will have a second car that is capable of being up there the whole race as well and trying to put a little pressure. Most of the time when we were quite competitive this year, I was the only car trying to beat them, and I was trying something different ”, the Dutchman warned the media ‘Motorsport.com’.
Finally, Max assured that he gave his opinion to choose the pilot, but that his advice had no influence on the result. Of course we talked about it, and I just give my honest opinion. I think it was pretty clear throughout the year that it was quite difficult for Alex at times. He’s a great guy, honestly, and I’m happy he’s still part of the team. But of course they are Helmut (Marko) and Christian (Horner) and of course Dietrich (Mateschitz) the decision makers. Of course I knew a little before. But that does not matter, “he said.
