Sergio Michel “Checo” Pérez Mendoza is a Mexican racing driver who drives for Red Bull Racing in Formula One. He has previously raced for Sauber, McLaren, Force India, and Racing Point. At the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix, he won his first Formula One race, breaking the record for the most starts before a race win with 190.
Sergio Perez was forced to retire early from the Canadian Grand Prix as his ‘wrong Red Bull’ broke down.
As the Canadian Grand Prix got began in Montreal, Red Bull was dealt an early blow.
After crashing out of Saturday’s rainy qualifying practice, Sergio Perez began 13th, while teammate Max Verstappen earned pole. Due to the car’s racing pace and the fact that overtaking at the track is simpler than at most other sites, Red Bull was still hopeful of a podium result for the Mexican.
Those expectations, however, were crushed just a few laps into the race when a fault with Perez’s car caused him to grind to a halt, thereby ending his title prospects. The retirement brought out a virtual safety car, causing Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton to pit, while others stayed out to maintain track position.
“He certainly lost drive, it could be a gearbox issue,” Red Bull team chief Christian Horner said of the exit. It’s obviously a huge disappointment for Checo. He might have been extremely swift out there today, I believe.”
“It’s always a concern,” Horner said when asked whether he had any reservations regarding Verstappen’s car. “But we’ve just got to keep our heads down now and try our best with Max.” We’ll see how that works out because he’s using a different tactic than the two vehicles ahead of him.”
Meanwhile, those who were worried about a Verstappen triumph were vocal on social media. On Twitter, one user commented, “Unfortunately, it’s not the other red bull,” while another added, “Wrong Red Bull.” “What a shame,” said a third. “You’re very unlucky.”
There was another virtual safety car soon after when the Haas of Mick Schumacher retired in the same part of the track, which led to Sainz diving into the pits, allowing Verstappen to retake the lead.
