Months and months of difficulties, which were eventually overcome.

Sergio Perez brought Red Bull its first runner-up finish in the Formula 1 drivers’ standings in a season in which the world champion è was the Anglo-Austrian team's other standard bearer. A result in itselfé of great importance, but overshadowed by the many Grands Prix in which the Mexican è appeared in difficulty; when not in full crisis. He himself però, with the season largely over, wanted to take stock of whatò happened to him.

"The Qatar Grand Prix è was by far the worst weekend I could remember, I think my worst ever in Formula 1,” Perez admitted.

“Things went so bad that I told myself that it couldn&#39t be me that was so poor. Something was wrong, so I thought we needed some time to figure out what it was".

And Perez assured that in the last 2023 rain dates he and Red Bull identified and then untied the knot. "We solved the problem, and at that point many things became clear,” said the Mexican. “We were not moving in the right way, which on the one hand è was negative but on the other hand allowed us to improve".

"In the space of a few months I went through really complicated moments, going from fighting for the world championship to even losing confidence in the single-seater. I know forò that to be in Red Bull you need psychological solidity, and in this I consider myself improved. The bad days make you learn a lot more than the good days,” Perez concluded.
