BARRIO – Sergio Pérez, the most successful Mexican Formula 1 Driver, rebounded from Red Bull team orders that denied him a chance to race for the win one week ago to pick up his first Formula One win of the season in the Monaco Grand Prix.
Pérez earned his third career F1 victory on the slick city streets of Monaco after a questionable strategy call by Ferrari cost pole-sitter Charles Leclerc a win on his home circuit.
“You dream of winning this, and after your home race, there is no place more special to win,” Pérez said after waving the Mexican flag.
Perez often referred to by his nickname Checo – made his F1 debut for Sauber in 2011. He’s currently signed with Red Bull and will be seeking a new deal with the team after his latest win. This won’t come cheap for Red Bull.
Vamos Sergio. Get that bag!
