Christian Horner, the Red Bull team principal, has disclosed that he encouraged Sergio Perez to 'move on' after he crashed out of his home grand prix in Mexico. Perez's season had many variations, and the Mexican failed to show his full glory in many races this season.
Although the start was promising and it seemed that Perez could be in the race for the title, his dreams were quickly dashed. Perez's inability to assert his pace and contend for the title can be attributed to a series of unfortunate circumstances when luck was needed.
In moments when things are not going perfectly for you, it is natural to lose confidence. This could best be seen in his example. However, Perez never lacked support, given that Red Bull executives were always understanding and motivated him to continue even stronger.
Horner is one of those who encouraged Perez after the race in Mexico and advised him to forget about the poor performance in Mexico.
"I was like 'Checo, just turn the page,'" Horner said to Sky Sports. "'It's done. You can't change it.
Take the positives out of the weekend and apply them.' "

Perez has a rich career and a lot of experience behind him. However, it is not easy when you are far from your goals. Horner is an optimist and believes that Perez will soon forget about bad performances and become the best version of himself.
With his experience and determination, Perez has the potential to overcome these challenges and return to the top of his game. With the amazing support of the Red Bull team and the belief of his fans, Perez has a promising journey ahead to fulfill his potential
"He's bought that here, one of his real strengths is when you think he’s down, he manages to pick himself up, brush himself down, and he has got a resilience," Horner concluded.
