Perez awesome but not number 2 driver says Verstappen

Sergio Perez is not the ‘number 2’ at Red Bull, according to his teammate and new world champion Max Verstappen. Verstappen, 24, hailed Perez’s sacrificial actions in Abu Dhabi in deliberately holding up Lewis Hamilton en route to world championship victory. So when told that Perez is therefore the best possible ‘number 2’ for him at Red Bull, the 24-year-old responded: “I don’t like to put it that way. You have to be respected, of course, but I don’t want to be favoured. “I am of course world champion now, but next year I have to start all over again,” Verstappen insisted.
