Mexican F1™ driver aiming for greater heights

Sergio Perez

F1™ driver from Mexico.
Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez.
In December 2020 it was confirmed that Checo would drive for Red Bull Racing in 2021, alongside Max Verstappen, to form an exciting partnership with the Dutch star. And it didn't take long for Checo to make an impact at his new team, securing just his second F1™ victory at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Hi Checo, what is your dream?

My dream is to be a world champion.

What is the driving force behind your dream?

My family.

Did you confront any difficulties on the way to achieving your dream?

Yes, a lot actually. You know, as a Mexican, I had to move to Europe at a very young age. So, the journey hasn't been that straightforward or easy,  but I think the best way I've dealt with it is by not giving up.

What is your next challenge?

There're always challenges ahead. So, I’m curious to know, it's always great…
I know that the next challenge that comes will be a good one. It doesn't matter if it's related to sport or to Formula 1™.
