Sergio Pérez’s contract 2022

We started 2021 in the same place we were in October last year: Checo Pérez, the Mexican driver does not have a contract for the next Formula 1 season.

Pérez has not only the opportunity to say of himself “he had been waiting all his life”, but also backed by a good contract that reflects his new pay, that of a Grand Prix winner. In the 2020 season, the pilot from Guadalajara reported a salary close to 3.6 million dollars per year, which according to various reports, increased with Red Bull to 7.2, placing him among the highest paid Mexican athletes in the world, only behind Saúl Canelo Álvarez (boxing) and Raúl Jiménez (soccer).

As usual, the Mexican will have to win a place on the grid in 2022, justifying his seat in each race, just as he did during the last quarter, which between urgency, ambition and courage led him to position himself as the fourth best driver of the last championship, with two podiums and the longed-for first victory, in Turkey and Sakhir, respectively.

His continuity under contract is subject to results, so Checo should be even more consistent than shown at Racing Point (now Aston Martin). There are many dark clouds, because even if Pérez achieved good results – average, so to speak – in case the Japanese rookie Yuki Tsunoda conquers podiums and of course, surpasses the Mexican in the championship, there would be no discussion about his departure from the team to be promoted to the which will debut in F1 with Alpha Tauri. The same applies if Frenchman Pierre Gasly has a brilliant performance.

At least then, there are two pilots lurking for Pérez’s seat at Red Bull, who will run with more pressure than ever, not only because of the team that protected him when all the doors were practically closed, but also because of the brands that have him. supported since he was a child (Telmex, Claro, Telcel), as well as the thousands of fans who, since last October, pressured Red Bull to sign Checo.

The 30-year-old Mexican driver will have to be more cerebral than ever, understand his place in the team and assume his role, establish himself as a top driver, analyze where he can challenge his teammate Max Verstappen or not, when to support him and in what moments even, assume a leading role. The goal is clear, to push the team to achieve the constructors’ championship, to “steal” all possible points from Mercedes, especially Valteri Bottas. In particular, he should aim for, at least, the drivers’ runner-up (a championship would be madness and millions of fans in Latin America would celebrate it).

The Mexican has, in fact, the table set to have a dream campaign: a team of the highest level and infrastructure, where the improvements in the car are not limited to budget issues; an engine supplied by Honda that in its last year in F1 seeks to win the championship; one of the best car designers in Adrian Newey; his own abilities as a pilot, which are at their best physically and maturely, as well as a dedicated hobby. Everything so that at the end of 2021, the decision to continue in Red Bull is only Pérez’s.
Let the season begin, we are anxious.

Mexico City

Sergio Pérez is the Mexican driver with the most podium finishes in the history of Formula 1 and currently aspires to be fourth in the 2020 general classification, a position that some might consider to be of little value, but in an era in which both Mercedes cars dominate and Max Verstappen seems to be competing alone with Red Bull, which makes him what some call the best of the rest.

After the second place he achieved Sergio perez at Turkish Grand Prix, Ross Brawn, director of the Formula 1, He referred to the possibility that the Mexican will not have a car next year and was even encouraged to describe it as “a tragedy” if he did not see him in 2021.

If your team wants a competitive driver to take advantage of every opportunity, Pérez is your man“wrote Brawn in his column that appears on the site.

Czech will leave Racing Point as soon as the season ends, which is why his future remains unknown; his illusion is that Red Bull knock on your door, since it is a team that interests him too much.

Celebrated Hamilton’s title

On the other hand, the manager applauded the seventh title of the English Lewis Hamilton in Formula 1.

“My congratulations to Lewis. He has shown why has an exceptional talent. Right now is at the peak of his career And I don’t know when it will start to decline I am always on the lookout for comments that circulate on Lewis’s radio during the race, in which he talks about things not going well. It’s entertaining, but then it always delivers, “he clarified.

Pérez accompanied Hamilton, who tied Michael Schumacher’s record as the top winners in Formula One. The Englishman, who started sixth, scored his 94th victory at the Gran Circo.

Perez even took the lead on a couple of occasions in Istanbul Park, but his pink car was no match for the one with the silver arrows, who beat him with less than 15 laps to play.

When Hamilton was placed as leader, the Mexican had to adapt and take care of his position, which he achieved without many complications, it was simply a matter of taking care of the tires.

For Checo it was a consolation, since he was able to alleviate the frustrations of the last race, when a stop to the pitts took away the opportunity for a podium. For this Sunday, the man from Guadalajara decided not to make that mistake again and celebrated with his team.

He could be the last as a Racing Point driver, as he will not be racing there for 2021, although a positive boost for his future and convincing a team to sign him for next season.

It was the third time that the tricolor closed like the two of a race.
