Red Bull’s second driver, Sergio Perez has always played supporting roles and has been a team player since joining Red Bull. After many changes, Red Bull have finally found this gem that has not only built up an amazing track record, but has also contributed its share of wins and points to the team.

During the Saudi Arabia race at the Jeddah circuit, Sergio Perez proved his skills by qualifying first in Q3 in the closing seconds by beating Leclerc who temporarily held pole position. Everyone on and off the track was very happy about the great performance of the Spaniard in qualifying on Saturday.

Motorsport’s Twitter handles recently tweeted about Checo’s reaction to losing the near-control race at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, stating: “This is racing. It will come for us one day but it hurts because we did everything we could to win this race from pole.”

Checo started Sunday with great pace from pole position, keeping Charles right behind. Everything at Red Bull was carefully planned and went smoothly according to plan until Nicholas Latifi’s unexpected crash against the walls after losing control of his car, resulting in a safety car and becoming Checo’s worst nightmare.

Just before lap 17, Checo had to pit after reporting wear on his right tire until which he was third. When Sergio Perez exited the pit lane he was in fifth place behind Max Verstappen, the Ferrari duo, and George Russell, but soon overtook Russell.

After gaining positions, the virtual safety car was activated as the chaotic crash loosened various materials on the track, while Sergio Perez accelerated to third place with the safety car still under investigation by F1 .

The Mexican found himself guilty of breaking protocol and, to avoid penalties, was asked to yield to Carlos Sainz and take his place. Upon completion of the transaction, Checo was released from podium finishes, after which Checo was unable to reclaim its position and thus lost its podium chances from pole position.

The Mexican was devastated by how things ended at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, but was delighted to see his team-mate win the race and kept the celebrations coming as there are still many more races on the calendar for him to conquer.
