Sitting just 15 points behind teammate Max Verstappen, he is arguably very much capable of winning the championship.

Carola Martinez and Sergio Perez tied the knot in 2018

Carola is 25 years old and was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco. She is widely regarded as a ‘socialite’ in the community and often shares travel, and family pictures on her social media handles. While Perez chooses to keep a low profile and has fewer pictures of the family, Carola is quite the opposite.
