With Formula 1 returning to the United States for the first time in two years next weekend, Red Bull got the action underway early by sending Sergio Perez to Dallas, Texas.
Perez was set loose in a Red Bull RB7 as the Mexican took part in his first-ever show run for the team. It was also the first time that Red Bull have been able to carry out one of their famous publicity runs since 2019.
Perez drove the RB7 through Dallas' Harwood District and thrilled the spectators with the roar of the V8 engine, as well as plenty of donuts and smoke. He was joined by fellow Red Bull athlete Aaron Colton, who put on a show on his motorbike.
"Today was very special, I really enjoyed it," Perez beamed afterwards.
"It was the first time doing donuts in the Red Bull car, which was a lot of fun, and it was definitely a day that none of us will forget soon.
"I always love visiting the US. I could feel the energy from the crowd and it was amazing to see the smiles on people's faces.
"Thank you to all of the fans for the support today, it's made me even more excited to race next weekend in Austin. Hopefully we can make it another double podium."
