“They will not be long conversations to renew Sergio Pérez”

“Checo” Pérez has been doing a very good job for Red Bull, having established himself as an important tool in the Milton Keynes team’s fight against Mercedes for the drivers ‘and constructors’ world championships this year.

The Mexican driver, who is in the third position of the contest with 96 points in his personal account, already knows what it is to win with the team after his triumph in the Azerbaijan GP, ​​and in recent races he has been a regular contender to the podium, which is what Red Bull expects.

During the third free practice this Saturday for the Austrian GP, Horner spoke with Sky Sports F1 of Great Britain and was asked about when the team will speak with “Checo” about his continuity, to which the Brit replied: “We are very happy with the work that ‘Checo’ is doing, so we will sit down to talk to him in due course. “

“Obviously there are some races to go between now and the summer break but we are happy with the points he has been getting and the work he is doing.

“Not really because we see each other all the time,” he replied before adding: “I don’t think there will be long conversations, it will be quite direct. At the right time we are going to have that talk.”

The Red Bull boss also referred to Lewis Hamilton’s renewal with Mercedes, which was announced this Saturday and will have the seven-time champion alongside Brackley’s team until the end of the 2023 season.

“I think it’s good for Formula 1. Lewis has made tremendous achievements, so keep going for a couple more years I think he’s good for the sport and I hope we can have more titanic battles with him,” Horner commented.
