Marko indicates Perez’s seat safe for 2022

Sergio Perez’s win at Baku appears to have cemented his place at Red Bull beyond his one-year contract. When asked if the Mexican is now doing enough to justify his position alongside championship leader Max Verstappen, Dr Helmut Marko told Auto Motor und Sport: “Yes. He’s a very good team player,” the energy drink company’s top F1 official added. Indeed, despite Marko’s earlier pressure on Perez to acclimatise more quickly to Red Bull, the 31-year-old was fast throughout the Baku weekend. It is this role of a reliable, points-scoring second driver that Red Bull has struggled to fill since Daniel Ricciardo decided to leave the team.
