Current Red Bull driver Sergio Perez was in the center of one of the most surprising developments in the driver market last year. Despite having a contract with Racing Point (now Aston Martin), he was dropped in favor of Sebastian Vettel. Recently, his former team’s technical director Andy Green characterized Perez’s driving style as extreme that did not work on every circuit on the calendar. Perez has now responded to this criticism.

I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:
Sergio Perez Hits Back At Former Team’s “Extreme” Criticism
Perez began by explaining how each car is different while analyzing his current Red Bull car
“They’re obviously very different in many aspects - the way you drive each of the cars is very different. So, you have to adapt to a different car, to a different style. But … this car has potential in it. And once I get on top of the car, we should be looking good”
He then pointed out how his “extreme” driving helped his former team
“Well, I think thanks to that ‘extreme driving’, we managed to get a lot of points! In a way, I think it helped us a lot in the past. And I just have to keep improving every year, try to make it more complete”
He signed off by reiterating that he has no idea what Green meant by calling his driving style extreme
“With every car, you’re going to be adapting yourself. So, it has to be very specific on which aspect, where you pick it up. With ‘extreme’ comes in a lot of things. Who knows?”

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has pointed out that Sergio Perez’s 2020 “season just got stronger and stronger”
“The absolutely crucial moment for him was winning that race from the back of the grid in Bahrain and after that performance you couldn't ignore what he had managed to achieve” added Horner
He also revealed that “everyone in the team wanted” 2020 driver “Alex [Albon] to keep that seat, but you just couldn't ignore a talented driver with Sergio's experience”
“So, in the end it was a relatively easy decision, but” they “were just lucky to have time on” their “side”
Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel has stated that “driving this car feels different”
He further explained that “every F1 car has power steering, but every power steering is tuned slightly differently and that immediately gives you a completely different impression”
He added that “the car has a completely different philosophy. It's a different team and a different car, so it drives very differently as well”
Masashi Yamamoto, Honda's managing director feels that “this season will be successful if” Honda-backed AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda “can score points”
“If he has the chance”, Yamamoto wants “him to aim for the podium. He's still a rookie this year, but he's going to be a good match for [Pierre] Gasly”
He also confirmed that if they “have a good driver”, they “will talk to Red Bull and” they “will continue to do so. That cooperation will stay” as he wants “kids to be able to keep dreaming”
Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko has divulged that they “have ordered all the technical requirements. In twelve months, everything should be ready”
“Then” they can then do all the engine “work” themselves “from 2023”
He also added that “there are not many people on the market for” filling up positions in their engine department “but there will definitely be people from other companies joining” them
F1’s managing director Ross Brawn feels that conducting races in circuits like Imola, Portimao, and Mugello last year “was a bit of a lesson for” them
They’re now “thinking about how” they “can build in this factor of the new and unknown in the future”

Will Albon ever race in F1 again?

Perez's results speak volumes compared to some guy's random words. Atleast expected Aston Martin to show some respect for a driver who literally played a crucial role in saving their ass. Strike 2 for me. (Strike 1 was shutting down their title winning GTE team)

Sergio Perez is a top driver and he will do very well this year and when he's done a few more miles he will catch up with Max I think he will win a good few races and will get a lot of points in the championship this year I like him and good luck Sergio

They just mad cause the only reason they hired Vettel was so Stroll can beat a washed up driver so they can say he beated a 4 time world champion, but now the guy they dropped is gonna clap theyr asses every race weekend. Im laughing at Lawrence Stroll i drive to survive. "If our competitors are jealous now wait until next year" 😂😂😂😂

I had little respect for Aston Martin after they kicked out Perez . Now , I don't even have that little respect as well . Just accept that , you are mad that Perez got that redbull seat. I will only watch Aston Martin for one and only reason ( Sebastian Vettel ) . If Vettel was not there in your team , I don't think I would watch your stupid team race .

Racing point needs to realise this that dropping off Perez in favour of Vettel. Oh wait did I say Lance Daddy’s rich kid Stroll? Well that was never a good idea. This man has taken Racing point to what it is now the previous season. Let’s see what that team can do this year with Apha Tauri, Ferrari, McLaren, and Alpine battling for the sweet midfield!

Sergio Perez is no fool! He adapts, improves, and looks at all aspects of his driving. He is also respected amongst his fellow drivers. He is not as crazy as a young Sebastian Vettel was. Crazy can bring some success though.

When Carlos Slim Jr (20 times richer than Stroll) was keeping Racing Point alive after its debacle, pouring millions of sponsorship funds from his Telcel and Claro companies, and Checho scoring the important points on the Mercedes-copy-and-paste-car, then they loved him. They're probably realizing the bad deal they did. They do not get the Slim money in and Seb is already unhappy with their mediocre team. Happy for Perez, sad for Vettel will be again in the back.

Let’s face it Racing Points owner is obsessed with making his son world champion at any cost. Lance Stroll’s position is set in stone whatever he does and Lawrence Stroll has now brought in Vettel to mentor him. Perez like Ocon was just collateral damage in Stroll’s obsession. Luckily both have secured better positions in a less partisan environment and let’s hope Perez in a Red Bull shows Stroll up for his promotion of his son over far better drivers.

If Perez gives Max some heat, then Albon will never drive a F1 car again. But if Perez struggles, then it will become even more obvious than it already is that Max has a very specific driving style that simply matches perfectly the characteristics of the Redbull car. In that scenario, some teams will take a second look at Albon and he has a good chance to come back to F1. That is at least how I see it.

Why is the media pushing this narrative as if saying his style is “extreme” is a bad thing? They probably meant that he sets up his car in a very specific way to get the best out of it, which he has always done in 2020. F1 fans are so dense, i stg, as if andrew green would talk shit of the guy for whom he’d build cars in the last 7 years to achieve the very best results.
