Red Bull wants to see a Sergio Perez win after baby Emilio

Sergio Perez has driven like the most fearsome rival. He is arguably one of the best drivers on the grid right now, consistently bringing points for the team. The 32-year-old’s sensational lap to the pole position at Saudi and his Imola 1-2 define his hunger and drive to really do well this season. However, even as a debutant with Red Bull just a year ago, the driver was incredibly fast and reliable.

In a recent post, Red Bull congratulated Checo and posted a comment from him. It said, “Since Miami, I have had a new baby, Emilio, so it would be amazing to welcome him to the world with a great result.” Moreover, the Austrian team also wrote, “If you weren’t supporting Checo before… You are now.”

Checo has been a Grand Prix winner previously but has more opportunities to be consistent now. Red Bull’s RB-18 is arguably the fastest car on the grid right now, and with no major distractions, Checo can win the Spanish Grand Prix! Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz’s 2 DNFs allowed him to be consistently on the podium. However, Miami GP saw him settling for a P4 as the two Ferrari kept ahead of him.

Many would agree that Perez has the right skillset and temperament to be a world champion. Though teammate Max Verstappen has managed to lead the team, the Mexican has a lot of time to catch up this season. He stands at P3 on the table, with Verstappen just 19 points ahead of him.

Moreover, the 32-year-old is ahead of Ferrari‘s Sainz by almost 13 points and can attack rather easily. If Red Bull maintains a pace advantage, fans can expect Perez to at least challenge Sainz. A fair example of it would be Miami, where the Mexican was right on the Spaniard’s tail and had almost caught him before a blunder.
