Perez showed an impressive pace during the racing weekend in Baku. He was leading in the second free practice and finished second in the third free practice, before being hampered by traffic in Q3 for a more serious place in the qualifiers.
He made it to second place in the race on Sunday, skipping Lewis Hamilton through the pits, and almost the same thing happened to teammate Max Verstappen. After the race, Checo explained that he did not see a reason why his form could not be transferred to the upcoming races: "It certainly seems that I have made good progress, not only this weekend but also in Monaco.
Every weekend my understanding of the car grows and after every weekend we do a very deep analysis. ” Perez looks confident and believes that his team can achieve even better results in the coming period. There is cohesion in the Red Bull team and it seems that they have finally found a formula that will bring them victories.
“We work a lot in the factory to try to figure out what we can do better as a team. We are improving and I see no reason why we could not have a similar pace by going to the second track ", said Perez.
Sergio became the fifth driver to win the race for Red Bull and the first new winner on the team since Verstappen’s 2016 debut.
He admitted that the start of the season was not as expected, and estimated the adjustment in the first five to six races. "I find my adjustment more difficult than expected, but we've been working extremely hard with the engineers in the factory since day one."
Perez is satisfied with the result he achieved and this victory will be just an additional motive for him to continue with such a good rhythm. It should be noted that their car is fast, but also that Red Bull drivers have additional self-confidence and are not afraid to take risks.
It will be interesting to follow Red Bull in the continuation of the season, considering that there will be a race between them and Mercedes until the very end of the season. There is cohesion in the Red Bull team and it seems that they have finally found a formula that will bring them victories.
"We finally achieved a very good result for the team. Here and there we showed flashes of speed. I am extremely pleased with the result. This definitely gives a lot of confidence to me and my team ", concluded Perez.
