Perez doing better job than Bottas says Marko

When it comes to teammates, Dr Helmut Marko thinks Red Bull has now raced ahead of Mercedes. “If Perez had not been in the pitstop window, we would have tried a two-stop strategy and it would have put us in a difficult situation,” Marko told He was close enough to Mercedes before the first stops to make them nervous. Marko continued: “It’s obvious that Perez is doing a better job than Bottas at the moment. Marko insisted, however, that the highly-experienced Mexican Perez should not be regarded purely as Verstappen’s “wingman”. “Perez will be even stronger in the future and the pressure on Mercedes will be even greater,” he said.
