Sergio Perez’s father told him to ‘respect’ Max Verstappen

Sergio Perez’s father has filed a complaint against Red Bull regarding reigning world champion Max Verstappen.

After last weekend’s dismal Japanese Grand Prix for Sergio Pérez, the Mexican driver’s father has walked back comments he made in April, in which he insisted there was “no bias” at Red Bull.

Perez retired twice last Sunday at Suzuka, a day to forget for the 33-year-old.

His race got off to the worst possible start after he broke his wing before entering Turn 1, following a collision with Carlos Sainz and Lewis Hamilton.

Pérez was forced to return to the pits immediately for repairs, although he was given a five-second penalty after passing Fernando Alonso under safety car conditions. The Red Bull driver’s race then took a turn for the worse when he received a second five-second penalty a few laps later after crashing into the side of Kevin Magnussen following a late overtaking attempt.

He was forced to stop again after an incident with another new striker, and also took his first penalty.

Red Bull eventually took Perez out of the race soon after, before letting him re-enter the race in the closing stages to take out a second five-second penalty.

The Austrian did not want Pérez’s penalty to be carried over to the Qatar Grand Prix, which takes place next weekend.

It was an embarrassing performance for the Mexican, as his father stood up for him. Pérez’s father insisted Red Bull designed the car to suit Max Verstappen, who took his 13th win of the year at Suzuka to secure the constructors’ championship.

However, his recent comments are in stark contrast to what he said in April, when he said that Red Bull treated both drivers the same.

“Checo continued to fight,” Perez’s father told ESTO.

“The bike was designed for Max because he rides with all the grips in the front and Checo always does it with the grips in the back. The position Checo finds himself in is the position he was hired for, second position. “There is only one champion and you have to understand that. He must work for it and respect it. All of this is built for Max to be the champion and we have to understand and respect that.

If he joins another team, he could finish fourth or sixth.
