Perez leaves Verstappen on his own again

Max Verstappen is “on his own again” within the Red Bull garage, according to Chinese-Dutch driver Ho-Pin Tung. The energy drink owned team has struggled to field a fully competitive second driver in recent years to support Verstappen’s push for the title. “A strong teammate is important in this case but Verstappen is on his own again,” 38-year-old Tung said after the Spanish GP, where new Red Bull recruit Sergio Perez continued to struggle with the sister car. “A lot is said about Valtteri Bottas, but thanks to him Mercedes can do its strategy,” he added. Verstappen’s slow pitstop on Sunday, triggered by a miscommunication, was another perfect example of how a more competitive teammate is necessary in the fight against Mercedes.
