Sergio Perez has kicked off his home race weekend in spectacular fashion by taking to the streets of Mexico City for a demo run.

The Mexican drew a crowd of 130,000 spectators as he drove his Red Bull F1 car down the Paseo de la Reforma, performing several flat-out blasts with a few donuts thrown in along the way.

Perez also unveiled some special edition overalls for the demo, as well as a new helmet design which he will use at this weekend's Mexican Grand Prix.

"It feels amazing to back here in Mexico City," Perez said after the event. "I never really imagined a moment like this.

"I think as an athlete and a driver you always think about being on track making memories, but today was crazy, we took over Mexico City. It was such a special way to start my home Grand Prix weekend.

"Everyone was full of energy and the people have been amazing, even camping here since last night. I am really looking forward to seeing all the fans back at [the] track this weekend too.

"My ambitions for this weekend are to be in the mix to win the race on Sunday and it would mean everything to me to come out on top in Mexico."
