With only two races left in the 2023 F1 calendar, time is of the essence for various drivers and teams. However, for Sergio Perez, arguably, the end of an era at Red Bull possibly awaits him, at Red Bull. With even Pierre Gasly confirming Checo’s inevitable dead-end at RB, perhaps it’s about time.

2023 hasn’t been kind to Sergio Perez by any means. Following a rollercoaster of a season, his future in F1 and Red Bull is in danger. But who better than Pierre Gasly, a former Red Bull driver and ex-Max Verstappen teammate, as he delivers a straightforward response to Checo’s situation?

Given Gasly’s experience at Red Bull, where he too, like Checo, struggled to cope with Max Verstappen’s performances, it’s fair to say that Gasly knows a thing or two about how things work at RB. With the rumors of Perez on the verge of losing his job growing stronger and Fernando Alonso’s heroics at the Brazilian Grand Prix taking center stage, Checo just might be awaiting a dead-end ahead.

According to F1i auto-journal, Pierre Gasly sympathized with Checo as he stated, “It’s never easy to be pitted against the best driver of the moment. Especially in the best team on the board where everything revolves around him, finding his place and proving his worth is quite a challenge.”

Remembering his days at Red Bull, he added, “Checo did well at the start of the season, then it foundered for reasons that escape us, I myself went through this downward spiral and it is very complicated to regain confidence in such an environment.

However, the former AlphaTauri driver ultimately delivered some harsh truth for Checo at RB. He further added, “Honestly, I don’t see how he can get out of it… It’s not that the dice are loaded, but all the elements are working against him and Max has set the bar so high that being on par with him is a mission impossible.

While Gasly’s words might seem quite harsh and negative, he’s stating nothing but the truth. Had Checo not lost his podium to Alonso at the Brazilian Grand Prix, things perhaps could have been different. But his continuous underwhelming performances with the grid’s strongest car only leads to an unfortunate dead-end for him, at Red Bull.

Can Checo end his Red Bull journey on a high note?

With not even Gasly confirming the dead-end ahead for Sergio Perez, the end of the journey at Red Bull is almost inevitable. However, given that he’s most likely to not continue further, what better to end his journey on a high and send a message to other teams that the true Perez is back? With him being known for being the ‘King of the streets’, a master class by him at the Las Vegas GP would certainly be one of the best ways to end his Red Bull chapter in his career.

Given that the track is set to be plagued with difficulties, and is an unknown test for all the F1 drivers and teams, who better than Checo to snatch the unclaimed throne at the Las Vegas Street Circuit? Granted that given his current form and the RB19 not particularly suiting his driving style, things can very much go wrong. Perhaps even a lap 1 DNF, considering the tricky layout of the track. However, if Perez wants to have a future in F1 beyond RB and impress other teams, getting good performances at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and especially the upcoming Vegas GP, is detrimental!
