Red Bull Racing is left with the driver’s and constructor’s world titles thanks to the great development of his single-seater, but also on the unrelenting Max Verstappenwho early won the championship twice and broke the all-time records for wins and points in the same year in Formula 1.

The Dutch driver seemed to be unrivaled throughout the season, not even who drives the same car and is positioned as a sub in the classification, Sergio Pérez. Despite the fact that the Mexican is announcing his best season on a personal level, enough to satisfy the team’s authorities, Guadalajara was far from the fight for the championship title.

In his statements to the public after the Mexican Grand Prix, Checo himself admitted that it is almost impossible for any driver to compete inch by inch with Max Verstappen, not even himself in these first two years with the Austrian team. Although he does not give up…

“It’s a big challenge to be his teammate. He’s been at a very high level since FP1 and throughout the weekend. Obviously it’s not an easy task.”he began by claiming Guadalajara after finishing third at the Hermanos Rodríguez Autodromo.

I don’t think there is anyone who can come and beat him right away. He is very solid with the team. I think my year is getting closer and closer, so I’ll try next year and see what happensPerez finished.

“Great season with Red Bull”

After a more than positive season with ups and downs in performance, the driver from Guadalajara said: I think the lesson this year is that we had a great season as a team.. Although he considered that we have to pick up that race pacebut about what on the right track.
