Perez at the wheel of a Red Bull: “A dream come true”



After a ten-year career spent almost exclusively in mid-peloton teams, apart from a short stint at McLaren which then began its decline, Sergio Pérez is this season in a team a priori capable of playing for victory or, at least, of regularly stand on the podium. So when it comes time to try out a Red Bull for the first time on the Silverstone track this Tuesday, specifically the 2019 RB15 in order to acclimate to his new team ahead of the 2021 car shakedown on Wednesday, he described a “dream come true”.

“It’s been an amazing day, my first day with Red Bull Racing. To see my name on the car is something extremely special and definitely a dream come true.”, said the Mexican, before praising his team’s work on his driving position.

“I have to say I’m happy with the progress made to make me feel a little more comfortable. Obviously I drove a car for seven years. [chez Force India/Racing Point], in a cockpit, in a bucket, with certain pedals, so just positioning yourself is a challenge to overcome. We are working hard. We have made clear progress on this, and I must say that for a first day, I feel very comfortable. “

“It’s still Formula 1 at the end of the day, but the driving position is different, [comme le sont] the steering wheel, the handles, the buttons, the procedures, the power unit, the way of delivering the power, the torque … We did a lot of preparation, a lot of days in the simulator, at the factory, with the controls, to control everything. “

“I have to say that I am very happy with the way my first day went, because I mastered all the procedures, obviously progressing and learning from them. But I believe that the preparation made before this day test was good. I think it really helps a lot to have this first day with the team. “

This Wednesday, Max Verstappen and Pérez will share the shakedown of the RB16B, which was presented on Tuesday and it will be the only run before the three days of winter testing in Bahrain in mid-March. Obviously, they are particularly crucial. “It’s very, very good to have these days with the team, to get to know my guys, to get to know the engineers, to have more fluid discussions. The way I explain the car is different from what I do. what they’re used to, and vice versa. “

“It’s important to feel comfortable in the cockpit, so that when we get to Bahrain, I can focus on performance. With a day and a half in the car, it doesn’t mean anything. here, the better prepared we will be for the first test in Bahrain. “
