BAHRAIN: Sergio Perez, the Mexican Formula 1 driver, has warned Red Bull and his teammate Max Verstappen ahead of the first round of the 2023 F1 season. 

Perez has said that if he doesn’t receive the support he needs from the team during the 2023 season, he won’t offer it either.

Sergio Perez was a “sensational wingman” for Verstappen in 2021 and highlighted the importance of teamwork. Teamwork will be crucial in a potentially competitive 2023 Formula 1 season where ten teams will compete for the World Championship points.

The 33-year-old, who has been a consistent performer throughout his career, wants to challenge Verstappen for the title and knows that this season is crucial to his career.

He has expressed his determination to give 100% to the sport and is ready to take on the challenge, but only if he receives the support he needs from his team.

However, Red Bull has often made it clear that Verstappen is their top priority and will do whatever it takes to ensure his title triumph.

Red Bull has Daniel Ricciardo, their eight-time Grand Prix winner, on standby and could call him up at any stage. 

Daniel’s presence means that Perez has to toe the line and follow the team’s playbook if he wants to continue with Red Bull and Formula 1.

Perez’s warning comes after Verstappen blatantly refused to help his teammate at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix last season, telling Red Bull that he had given his reasons and stood by them. 

While Red Bull insisted that all was well between the teammates, Perez’s warning suggests that there may still be tension between them.

Perez is well aware of the risks he is taking by going against Red Bull’s orders and potentially jeopardising his career. 

However, he is determined to fight for the title and won’t back down without a fight.

In a season that promises to be highly competitive, with Ferrari and Mercedes expected to edge ever closer to Red Bull, Perez’s warning to Red Bull and Verstappen adds another layer of drama to an already exciting season. 

Whether he receives the support he needs remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: Perez won’t be giving it if he doesn’t get the same.
