Red Bull Racing Boss Christian Horner Takes Brutal Dig At Driver Sergio Perez

Red Bull Racing has completely dominated the 2023 Formula 1 season.
But team principal Christian Horner still seems unhappy with the driver racing Sergio Perez.

Red Bull won the 2023 constructors’ championship two weeks ago in Japan with six races remaining on the calendar.
Superstar driver Max Verstappen won his third consecutive drivers’ championship last weekend in Qatar with five races remaining.

Verstappen and Perez are ranked 1-2 in the driver standings.
But this season has not been easy for Perez. Vertsappen almost doubled his points total (433-224). Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton (194) can surpass him to take second place in the rankings.

And Perez failed to finish a race or start multiple times throughout the season due to driver errors.

After the Qatar Grand Prix, Horner put his foot down and expressed disappointment with the way Perez has navigated this season.

“I think we really need to sit down with Checo because we know what he’s capable of and he’s really not in that form at the moment,” Horner said. “We really need him to regain his form to maintain second place in the rankings.

“So it’s disappointing that he only came out at the weekend [in Qatar] with one point and I think even starting from the back of the net he had a chance to score a big goal today nay, or deservedly.”
Perez teamed up with Verstappen to win his three consecutive drivers’ titles.
And he played a fundamental role in helping his team-mate win their first championship of 2021.

But his results gradually declined as the season went on and with riders like Daniel Ricciardo and Liam Lawson are waiting in the wings, Perez’s post could well be online.

The 33-year-old Mexican driver may not be gone yet.
But if his struggles continue, it’s hard to imagine that he won’t be the same in the near future.
