Sergio Perez on the title race with Max Verstappen

Sergio Perez still believes that he can "overtake" Max Verstappen and win the title. The Red Bull team has absolute dominance this season and there is a good chance that they will be champions again, for the third year in a row.

However, the question is whether Verstappen will take the title again, or Sergio Perez. Although now the difference between them is much bigger, and the Dutchman is the leader, Perez believes that he has a chance for first place.

"I've been a match to Max since the beginning of the season, in one way or another," -Perez said, as quoted by crash.net "It is sometimes better, sometimes worse and it's where I believe you have to be. I think being teammates with Max is probably the toughest thing you can have because he is a driver who has the most form of all, and I do believe it's possible to beat him”.

Perez had a disappointing performance at the Monaco GP. He is sorry that he disappointed her team, but Perez has no doubts that he will improve things in the rest of the season. The most important thing for the Mexican is to stay true to himself and continue to show great form.

"Formula 1 is my passion," he said. "I live for it, so it hurts a lot because you work so hard as a team and it feels like you have let your whole team down, so it hurts. But now this is behind me. It was important for me to put my hand up and I think every time you do a mistake, that is what you've got to do.

Take responsibility. If this crash happened and I was 0.5s or a second off, I would be more concerned. But the positive thing is the speed is there to be able to swing around things, but for now I am mainly focused on weekend by weekend and I want to win and get victories on my side."
