Sergio Perez is not able to achieve his goals this season. Many wonder what is the reason for the Mexican's bad form. Judging by his father's words, Red Bull designed the car according to Max Verstappen's taste. In an interview with ESTO, Antonio Perez emphasized that Sergio has to adapt, while Max has a car that was created according to his driving style.
"Checo continues to struggle with the car in something that we have not detected," he said, as quoted by gpfans.com! "The car is set for Max. Max drives with all the grip in the front, and Checo has driven all his life and all the time he has driven with the grip in the back.
So today Checo has to adapt to driving a car, and Max doesn’t." Sergio's father believes that Max will become the new champion and win the third title in a row. “The position Checo Perez is in the drivers' championship is the one for which he was hired: second place," he continued.
Although he will certainly not win the title this season, his father believes that the future can bring great things for Sergio. Their hope is that the Mexican will win the championship and go down in the history of this sport.
"There is only one place to be a champion. Checo has to work, he has to earn it. This whole thing was built for Max to be there. When Checo finished in tenth place, it was a source of pride for us that he won a point. Today, he ends in second place and we get angry, we want him to be first.
The only thing I can tell you is that Mexico is going to have an F1 world champion and also, this weekend was the second time that Checo is F1 champion, in the constructors' [championship]”. We will see what kind of plans Red Bull has for the future.
