Red Bull chief jokes that Sergio Perez must have been ‘drunk on tequila’ after blowing podium chances at French GP

RED BULL chief Helmut Marko joked that Sergio Perez must have been drunk on tequila after he blew his podium chances at the French Grand Prix. Marko, a senior advisor to Red Bull, joked that Perez’s slow reaction was because he had been drinking. Speaking after the race, the 79-year-old F1 veteran is quoted by Sueddeutsche as quipping of Perez: “Maybe he had tequila yesterday”. But at the start of the French Grand Prix, he was immediately pipped by Lewis Hamilton who went on to finish 2nd on what was his 300th Grand Prix. So far this season, Verstappen boasts seven victories, Leclerc has three while Perez and Sainz have a win each.
