Sergio Perez is honest about his relationship with Max Verstappen

Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen are currently the best team couple on the F1 scene. Verstappen is doing wonders this season, but Perez is also great. In an interview with the media, the Mexican talked about the relationship he has with Max Verstappen.

The two seem to get along great. ‘I’m here to do the best possible thing for myself as well [but] to be honest, we’ve got a lot more respect for each other than people might think out there,’ -Perez said, as quoted by metro.co.uk ‘Inside it is a great atmosphere with the team, there is a very high level of respect between each other in the team with all the engineers from their side or my side.

I think we are both mature enough to know what’s right and what’s wrong. As long as that keeps being the case, then I don’t expect anything to change.’

Perez has great respect for Max and what he is doing in this and previous seasons.

The Mexican emphasized that consistency is currently the biggest focus, and that they must continue to be careful and motivated in the rest of the season. ‘Of course, if I want to win the championship, I have to beat Max weekend in and weekend out, and keep this level of consistency throughout the season,’ Perez continued.

‘It’s all about this season’s consistency, you know. You can win 15 races, but if in the other races, you just crash and have DNFs and so on, it is not enough. It’s just reaching that level of consistency and taking it race by race.

There is no doubt that there is no driver on such a form as Max. Together with the team as well with the car he is definitely the hardest driver to beat. It will require the maximum out of me to bring my A-game every single weekend.’
