Team Red Bull has the fastest car; they are winning every single race with huge speed gaps. The car mind-boggled the Mercedes principal Toto Wolff; it made Lewis Hamilton claim he never saw such a car. Everyone in the world does not get tired of praising team Red Bull for building machines like RB18 and RB19. But with what Sergio Perez suggests, it is all just hype!
For the Mexican driver, who just saw his nightmare IRL in the Australian Grand Prix, it is not very impressive how Red Bull works. If you claim Red Bull has no flaws, Perez will definitely disagree because he can sense several unacceptable problems in the RB19 that still need much focus while fixing. Last week, the third Free Practice session in Melbourne was a little imbalanced for Checo. But the mechanic issue in the qualifying is not even worth talking about; he had to start the Australian Grand Prix from the last position on the grid.
What happened with Sergio Perez in the qualifying that he had to end the session just after turn one? As he explains, first of all, “it was unacceptable,” he said. Checo faced a series of mechanical failures and a terrible braking issue. This prevented him from completing laps, and he ended up being P20. But with the work done in the RB19 over the night, Perez, with his incredible driving, managed to end the Australian Grand Prix on P5! However, his teammate Max Verstappen remained victorious, starting from the pole and finishing the race first ahead of the Mercedes superstar Lewis Hamilton. After Australia, Checo, who was just one point behind Max, got 14 points behind. “It was a very bad weekend.”
Lots Of Problems For Sergio Perez In Red Bull Ahead
Indeed, not only a bad but the worst weekend for the Mexican driver, as explained by Sky Sports host Karun Chandhok. Max Verstappen and his teammate are just ready to battle each other this year with the same car for the championship. But with these uncertainties coming from the RB19, which hit first Max in Jeddah and then Chceo in Melbourne, things are difficult to predict. All that he could say is, “Whatever happened on Saturday is totally unacceptable.” It was a nightmare coming true! and he just survived it coming through the gravel, causing a red flag in the qualifying at the Albert Park Circuit.
Meanwhile, Checo’s contract with team Red Bull because a topic for discussion among fans. His current deal is ending by the end of 2024. And after that, a deal extension perhaps seems difficult with the rising feud between the drivers. So many compromises Sergio Perez has to make just for Max Verstappen, as he is Horenr’s favorite driver. This may become the reason for Perez to exit from Red Bull. And then there will be a vacant seat for which, according to fans, sits perfectly, Yuki Tsunoda. He belongs to the Alpha Tauri team, Red Bull’s sister team. And these days, fortunately, the driver is making good races.
Besides, the team principal of Alpha Tauri, Franz Tost, emerged to claim, “Yuki is on the right path. And till 2024, 2025, he will become fully eligible to get promoted to Red Bull.” So no doubt, after 2024, Yuki Tsunodo might replace Sergio Perez.
