Sergio Perez: Net Worth and Salary

Sergio Perez debuted in Formula One in 2011 with the Sauber team. The Mexican’s signing was a result of Sauber announcing a partnership with telecommunications company Telmex. He stayed with the Swiss outfit for two years.

The Mexican is reportedly worth $30 million, and his annual salary for 2020 is believed to be $8 million.

In 2013, he jumped ship to McLaren but suffered a very poor run that year. A year later, he moved to Force India and would stay there until this season. He partnered Nico Hulkenberg for three years until Hulkenberg’s departure to Renault. He then partnered Esteban Ocon for two years before Ocon was ousted in favor of Lance Stroll for 2019.


On-track Achievements

Sergio Perez scored a podium in just his second season in Formula One, in the second race of 2012. During his stint with the Woking-based outfit, he could only manage a position as high as 5th. When he moved to Force India, he scored five podiums for the Indian outfit.

His highest position in the Drivers’ Championship is 7th in 2016 and 2017. While partnered with Hulkenberg, the two managed to help the team finish 4th in the 2016 Championship. Perez and Ocon repeated the feat once again in 2017.

Perez out qualified and outpaced his younger teammate Stroll to finish 1oth in the Drivers’ Standings, scoring a respectable 52 points in a car that wasn’t very competitive.

However, Perez is facing a much stronger challenge from the Canadian in 2020. With the RP20 being strongly influenced by last year’s Championship-winning car, Racing Point has zoomed ahead of the midfield with Perez and Stroll scoring points consistently.

The Mexican was forced to miss 2 races this season due to COVID-19 but bounced back with a stellar performance at the Spanish Grand Prix. Perez currently sits 8th in the Drivers’ Championship.

Sergio Perez’s Endorsements

Perez has two personal sponsors backing him, Telmex and Telcel. Both are Mexican telecommunications companies. He is also sponsored by Claro, another telecommunications company.

He was also sponsored by the sunglasses brand, Hawkers, but ended his relationship with them. As it turned out, they put out a tweet suggesting Mexicans buy a pair of shades to hide their tears when President-elect Donald Trump’s border wall is constructed.

Finding the tweet offensive, he elected to end ties with them. He stated that he did not support Hawkers’ opinions and found their tweets unamusing..
