Perez aims to “over-deliver” on Red Bull’s potential in first year at team · RaceFans

Sergio Perez says he aims to “over-deliver” on the potential of Red Bull’s car in his first season with the team.

Speaking to media including RaceFans after his first run in the team’s new RB16B for the 2021 F1 season, Perez said his objective was “to over-deliver the car performance.”

“If we’ve got a car good enough to win the championship, to make sure I win it,” he explained. “And if we’ve got a car that is good for second, make sure I win. Over-deliver the car potential.”

Perez, who made his F1 debut in 2011, believes his experience will stand him in good stead when he goes up against new team mate Max Verstappen, who is widely regarded as one of the sport’s top drivers.

“I think it is quite a big [advantage], to be honest,” said Perez. “You’re here and when things don’t go well, pressure hits you hard. And when you are experienced and when you’ve been through it before, it just makes you focus on the right stuff.

“Technically you develop a lot of skills as well throughout your career. I just think the opportunity comes at a great point of my career and it’s going to work out well.”

However Perez said it may take him time to get the best out of his new car and team.

“I’m confident in my abilities,” he said. “I just think it’s a matter of time before I get on top of everything.

“But I don’t see why, with time and once I am on top of all the things that I need to know before on the car, I can’t be [at] my level.”
