“If we have a champion car, I will make sure we win the title”

Sergio Pérez has given his first interview for Red Bull and has spoken about his goals for this first year, in which he only thinks about restoring the trust placed in him to the team.

« Last year at the end I had the car to show a little more and people saw what it was capable of. The only thing I was missing was the opportunity. Now I have it, it is up to me to make it work. I am going to make sure I surrender for above expectations. If we have a car that can win the Championship, I will make sure that we win it. If not and we only have a car good enough to be third, I will make sure that we finish second « , said ‘Checo’ in his first interview with Red Bul ..

« I hope we have a really good season, it’s the only way I can repay Mr. Mateschitz, Dr. Marko, Christian, Adrian and the whole team. No one has ever given me the opportunity to be in a team before. great, I hope we will hear the national anthem of Mexico many times next year! « he added.

« Red Bull is a fantastic brand. Of all the teams in Formula 1, I thought there was no opportunity for me to join because I was not part of the young driver program, but when the opportunity presented itself I jumped at it. It’s a dream come true. When I put on the Red Bull jersey or drink a can, I say ‘wow, this is the brand I drive for!’ It’s impressive and hard to imagine, « he shared.
