Perez's long-term prospects looked limited when he lost his drive at Racing Point near the end of 2020, but a late-season win in Bahrain and a Red Bull team looking for the ideal sidekick to Max Verstappen saw his fortunes flip 180 degrees. The veteran Mexican is just what Red Bull requires, a safe pair of hands, open to whatever the team needs, and a canny operator who seldom beats himself.
Comfortable in his own skin and still fast enough to snare podiums, Perez's presence means Red Bull has nothing to worry about on the 'other' side of the garage.
