Perez: This will be my best season at Red Bull

formula 1
Ahead of the start of the 2024 season, Sergio Perez is confident this will be his best season with Red Bull Racing as he tries to overtake team-mate three-time world champion Max Verstappen. The Mexican will start his fourth season with Red Bull this year, but since his contract expires at the end of the season, he will be even more motivated to convince his employers to renew with results. Perez started last season with wins in Saudi Arabia and Azerbaijan before completely losing touch with Verstappen, who recorded a record nineteen wins and ended the season 290 points behind the Dutchman. "Everyone is aware of the challenge that awaits me this year," said the 34-year-old Perez. "Max is a racer that you can only beat if you give your all, so this is a big challenge for me, which I also

The Red Bull Racing team has denied the possibility of Liam Lawson racing for the Williams team in 2024, but more likely a racing seat awaits him in 2025, when he could become Max Verstappen's teammate. The 21-year-old Lawson impressed in his role as reserve driver when he jumped into the car of Daniel Ricciardo, who was injured in practice for the Dutch GP. But Red Bull's links with Honda and signed contracts have left the New Zealander in the role of reserve driver for Red Bull and Alpha Tauri teams, which could change in 2025. "Williams probably won't take the driver for a single season," Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said of the possibility of a move to Williams, explaining that there was no way Lawson would win a seat at Alpha Tauri. "All these racers are Red Bulls sitting in the race

Max Verstappen was happy that he was not asked by the Red Bull team to slow down Charles Leclerc and thus allow Sergio Perez to catch and pass the Monaco, as he believes that it would not have been the right end to the season. While the Dutchman easily led the race from pole position and held the lead all the way to the finish line, behind him there was a nervous battle between Leclerc and Perez for second place among the drivers. Perez closed the gap on the Ferrari driver in the final laps thanks to a change in tactics, but eventually ran out of laps to try and overtake. Verstappen revealed after the race that he had not received any instructions from the team to help his teammate, which he believes would have tarnished the season finale. "I didn't get any instructions, but it's also a very ticklish subject," he said

Mexican Sergio Perez finally won pole position in his 215th qualifier. The Mexican will start the Formula One race for the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix with the best starting position, which will be very important for the race, which takes place on a narrow track. But more than that, he was happy with the fact that he managed to beat all the competitors in the qualifications on a demanding racetrack. “If I can be the fastest here, then I can be anywhere,” he said. "This track is definitely the most challenging for a perfect lap, as you risk a lot all the time and you have to be extremely precise." Perez came to the best starting position very surprisingly, as Ferrari racer Charles Leclerc set the fastest times of all three free practice, and before the last fast laps he was both ahead of him and Carlos Sainze
