It was a whirlwind 2020 for Sergio Perez. Not only did the Mexican contract coronavirus, but he spent the latter part of the season contemplating his potential exit from the sport after losing his seat to Sebastian Vettel for 2021. However, a career-best fourth-place finish in the drivers’ championship – which included his first grand prix victory – means Checo will line up for Red Bull next year in a car that could challenge Mercedes.

Biography of Formula 1 driver Sergio Perez

Perez finished the 2010 GP2 season – now Formula 2 – second behind Pastor Maldonado and would jump straight into Formula 1 with Sauber in 2011. The Mexican was an appealing prospect, thanks in part to his substantial financial backing by prominent Mexican businessman Carlos Slim, and was also snatched up by the Ferrari Driver Academy.

Becoming the first Mexican to compete in F1 since Hector Rebaque, it wouldn’t be long before his ability behind the wheel became apparent. Checo finished his first grand prix in seventh spot after becoming the only driver on the grid to make fewer than two stops. However, the result would be taken away after both Sauber cars were disqualified for infringing technical regulations.

A two-year stint with Sauber in which he secured three podiums raised speculation that Ferrari could sign the Mexican to replace Felipe Massa, however the Italian outfit opted against the move citing his lack of experience. Ferrari’s sentiments weren’t shared by McLaren, who signed Perez as Lewis Hamilton’s replacement in 2013.

The move would prove to be disappointing as the MP4-28 was a far cry from McLaren’s race-winning car the previous year. Perez’s relationship with teammate Jenson Button would also be tested, with the former world champion criticising his younger teammate after nearly coming together on several occasions at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

McLaren exit and Racing Point success

After McLaren announced the Mexican’s departure in favour of Kevin Magnussen after just one season, he would sign on with Force India for the 2014 campaign. Checo started the season strong with a third-place finish at Bahrain, giving the team just their second podium result.

Victory would elude him at the Canadian Grand Prix as he ran second behind the ailing Mercedes of Nico Rosberg in the closing laps. Brake issues derailed those hopes and a last-lap collision with Massa would see the Mexican handed a penalty.

During his seven years with the team known as Racing Point since 2018, Perez forged a reputation for mastering the balance of tyre management and pace as well as anyone. This skill helped him recover from last to first to claim his first victory at the 2020 Sakhir GP, becoming the first Mexican race winner since Pedro Rodriguez in 1970.

Sergio Perez in Formula 1

The Mexican registered his maiden F1 victory after 190 starts, the longest wait for any driver in the sports’ history. Given he had only led two laps in the previous six years prior to his win, it’s safe to say his patience finally paid off.

Born in Guadalajara, Sergio has an older sister Paola and older brother Antonio Perez who competed in the NASCAR Mexico Series until 2015. He also unveiled the Checo Perez Foundation to help orphans and children with cancer in November 2012.
