Red Bull may need Perez’s sponsorship says Albers

Sergio Perez is still in the running to become Max Verstappen’s next teammate at Red Bull, according to former F1 driver Christijan Albers. “I don’t think that’s right,” Albers told De Telegraaf. “Soon Red Bull will be tackling this engine problem and it will cost them dearly,” he explained, referring to Honda’s looming departure from F1 after 2021. Indeed, Red Bull is considering going it alone with Honda’s IP and operations after 2021, and Albers thinks the team would enjoy the backing that Perez’s Mexican sponsors could provide. “I think in 2006 he paid 12 million to do several races for Red Bull. I don’t think it’s right to say that Red Bull don’t need money.
