After a fantastic race in 2019, the US GP did not appear in the Formula 1 calendar in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that the F1 people have traveled across the pond to Texas for this year’s race, they have kept it in mind that the fans are eager for some F1 spectacle.

Thus, the Red Bull F1 Team put on a show in Dallas where their newest recruit Perez showed off his skills behind the wheels. Red Bull’s Twitter team swiftly sent out the video for fans across the world to see, and Checo posted it as well, thanking his fans for their support.

He wrote, Thanks to the entire Mexican and Latino community, they made me feel at home! (American flag emoji) (Mexican flag emoji) See you next week! #redbullshowrun#Dallas

The video did rounds all over the internet as well.
