Sergio Perez's poor form worries many, and the question is whether the Mexican will remain in the team with these performances. Perez is under enormous pressure from the media, F1 fans, and others. Precisely for this reason, Nico Rosberg gave him some interesting advice, considering that he has a lot of experience.
“I would recommend Sergio switch off all the media and everything, not look at social media,” -Rosberg said, as quoted by crash.net “He’s going to be seeing so many memes going against him, comments going against him, journalists giving questions that are going against them, so you really need to separate yourself from that”.

Rosberg also emphasized how dangerous reporters and journalists can be in the whole story. In such moments, it is necessary for the driver to be mentally strong and calm. Sometimes it seems impossible, but there is no better option for a Mexican.
“The only problem is that he still has to go to the racetrack and sit in front of 50 journalists,” he continued. “They’re going to ask him: ‘Hey Sergio, you’re looking like you’re having the biggest struggle in your career.
Do you think you’re ever going to get out of this again?’" That always hits you, because you have to listen. You can’t ignore [it], you have to answer the questions." Nico is aware that Perez will get a lot of questions that will have a huge impact on him.
In such moments, it is important to be wise and think carefully about your answers. "The next question is going to be: ‘Hey Sergio, do you feel a threat from Daniel Ricciardo, do you feel that you might lose your seat?’ It just goes on and on like that, and it’s so hard because it just keeps on hitting you.
That’s one of the hardest parts of the weekend for Sergio at the moment to deal with. So it’s about switching off, focusing”.
