Sergio Perez is determined to secure second in the Formula 1
Drivers’ Championship, ahead of the Las Vegas Grand Prix. The
Mexican is locked in a battle with Lewis Hamilton, with the pair
separated by 32 points with two races to go. The seven-time World
Champion would need to have a margin of at least 25 points to stay
within a shot in Abu Dhabi. If Perez can outscore Hamilton by seven
points in Las Vegas, it would enable Red Bull to achieve a historic
one-two in the championship. Pressure has mounted on Perez, however
Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner has still given his
backing to the Mexican regardless of the outcome. Perez: Vegas will
present challenges Perez expects it will be a race that will
present drivers with a lot of opportunities, but it will be
challenging for teams to understand how the temperatures will
affect their car on the new track surface. “Las Vegas is going to
be a crazy race! You can already see the whole city has been taken
over by F1 and it’s going be very unique racing around the streets
of Vegas,” said Perez. “Vegas will also present some challenges to
us, the track will be cold and the car will run a lot differently
than usual due to the temperatures. “It’s something we all need to
overcome though and we have been working hard as a Team behind the
scenes on the set up and prep required to make this weekend a
successful one. “For me I want to secure second in the Championship
– it would be a fun place to do it!
