Following his stint with the Racing Point team, now called ‘Aston Martin’, Sergio Perez was left without a seat for the 2021 season and that’s when Red Bull came to the Mexican’s aid and made him their driver for the 2021 season .

The Mexican had a promising start to his RedBull career when he clinched his maiden win at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in 2021 but from then on things didn’t go as planned for the Mexican and he struggled in the second half of the season .
