In his penultimate race for Racing Point, the team from which the Mexican had been dumped for Sebastian Vettel as part of its rebranding as Aston Martin, Perez won a remarkable Sakhir Grand Prix; last after the first lap, he was first on the last lap to win his 190th GP, the longest wait for any driver to achieve their maiden success.
A fortnight later, Perez was hired by Red Bull to do what Pierre Gasly and Alexander Albon couldn't – be fast enough to present a strategic headache to Mercedes, but not so fast as to overshadow the team's A-lister, Max Verstappen. It's a tough gig, but as 2020 proved, Perez can overcome impossible odds.
