Christian Horner sees confidence as the key to Sergio Perez’s success and the Mexican will now skyrocket. According to the Red Bull Racing team boss, the most important thing for Perez and Max Verstappen is that they have set a Grands Prix record every weekend of the Formula 1 season.
Perez has already won races in Australia and Azerbaijan this season, and after four grands prix, he has as many victories this year as the entire 2022 season. Sego is just six points behind team-mate and championship leader Verstappen.
The championship becomes a marathon
“Czecho has had a fantastic start to the season: two wins so far,” Horner said after free practice in Miami. “And another win in the sprint.” Second place and fifth place of course. So he has started the season stronger than ever. And as we all know, I think belief is very important in any sport and Sego’s belief is that this championship is going to be a marathon, with ups and downs. His challenge, it’s a challenge for both drivers, is to maintain consistency, we’ll definitely see them. [Mercedes] At some point we can show Ferrari, so it’s not about our drivers.”

Excel at street circuits
“Not really,” the 49-year-old Briton replied when Perez asked if he was doing anything else to his car. “I think there are certain tracks that will always suit him. I think the street circuits. He’s always excelled at them, and going back to Europe for some classic tracks, I think he’s got to take that confidence with him and I’m sure he absolutely can.” . But he’s not really driving any different. It’s his third year with the team, he’s settled in, and he’s definitely comfortable with himself, understanding how everything works.”
