“It’s kind of sad to leave the team like this, but I told my guys, some of them were cryingBut you just have to remember what happened last weekend what happened in the whole season“Added Checo, who, as unlikely as it may be, or receives in the next few hours a call from red bull or it will have to be taken a gap year in 2021.
“I hope people remember victory in the Sakhir Grand Prix instead of what happened this weekend, “said Sergio Pérez, who completed this Sunday his tenth season in Formula One, category in which he added ten podiums.
What a year! We never gave up despite adversity.
We lost 2 GPs to Covid, reliability issues and still we always gave it our all! I don’t know what’s next, but I do know that whatever comes I will always be giving my best. Thanks for your support! pic.twitter.com/WkC9broTbH

“And from a broader perspective, it has been a huge shame to have had to withdraw; why we needed to have got both cars in the points to have chosen to finish third in the Constructors’ World Cup ”, said Checo, who this year also took the podium in Turkey, where he signed a sensational second place.
“We won a race, we went to podiums and we were very unfortunate in some situations, especially as both drivers had to miss some races, “said Checo, referring, above all, to the two Silverstone (England) events that was lost for positive in COVID-19.
