The Mexican Sergio Pérez confessed that the team Red Bull wants him to win Grand Prix of Mexico that takes place this weekend in the framework of the 18th date of the World Cup Formula 1.
This statement, in some way, reassures his fans since with his Dutch partner Max Verstappen fighting for the crown with the English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) it could be assumed that the Austrian team takes some measures that benefit it.
“Being in front of Max and Lewis would be a big problem that I would like to have”, Checo Pérez acknowledged during the press conference prior to the event.
“It all depends on the situation because many of the decisions are usually made in the same race, at the moment of stress. So everything will depend on the circumstances. We'll see. I think everyone at Red Bull wants me to win this weekend. "affirmed the Aztec.
“Everyone is looking forward to this weekend. My team, the public… it is a very special event for us. But I'm very sure that if the team has to choose who they want to win the race, that's me. ", Pérez remarked.
He later reiterated his stance on whether he would let Verstappen pass if he was in front of him during the race. “We will see it on Sunday. Until then it makes no sense to raise the situation ”, clarified.
"We are not guaranteed that we will get to that position, but it would be a big problem if we got to that point and we haven't talked about it before." Pérez finished, who comes from achieving two third places in the GP's of Turkey and the United States.
