Perez too weak so far in 2021 says Marko

Sergio Perez is a “decisive factor” in Red Bull’s push to win the 2021 world championship, according to top team official Dr Helmut Marko. 79-year-old Austrian Marko was most directly responsible for ousting Alex Albon and replacing him with the experienced Sergio Perez for this season. However, Mexican Perez has also struggled to match up to Max Verstappen, and Marko told Sport Bild that could be the “decisive factor” in the title chase. “He’s just been too weak in qualifying so far,” Marko said. “We now see our chance to fight back,” said Marko when asked about Mercedes’ utter dominance of the sport since 2014. While Perez has disappointed Marko, he is more than happy with Dutchman and championship leader Verstappen.
