Vice-world champion this season, Sergio Pérez was however unable to sustainably compete with Max Verstappen who scored twice as many points in total. However, the Mexican is not resigned and intends to return to battle in 2024 in order to succeed in dominating his teammate, for the first time since his arrival at Red Bull.
This season, Max Verstappen left nothing to the competition, not even to his teammate. If Sergio Perez made an illusion at the start of the season with two victories in the first four races of the season, he quickly understood that he would not last the distance in the long term. On arrival, the Dutchman obtained a third world champion title in a row with 19 victories over the season, and double the points of his teammate. But the Mexican is not resigned yet.

“I have already finished second and my main goal is to do better”
« I have already finished second and my main goal is to do better, although I am aware of the challenge this represents. I really have to take advantage of this winter to start the season in style and be able to maintain the level throughout the championship. I made a lot of progress with my engineer in understanding how to maximize the performance of the car. I must learn to better exploit its potential on all circuits », assure Sergio Perez in comments reported by F1ibefore continuing.
“I have the best reference on the set”
« There will definitely be things I still need to learn from him. I have the best reference in the field because he is the most competitive driver. There is no harm in analyzing his behavior to learn from it, on the contrary I could improve by seeing what I do well and what he does better than me. I have always had a very open approach and I think it is constructive », Adds the Mexican pilot.
