Red Bull ‘to axe Sergio Perez and turn to 22-year-old rising star to partner Max Verstappen’ in shock move

RED BULL are ready to replace Sergio Perez with rival driver Yuki Tsunoda, shock reports claim. Red Bull have often turned to their sister team for drivers with Verstappen initially driving for them before being fast-tracked in 2016. Albon’s struggles saw Red Bull abandon their promotion policy and opt for experienced driver Perez at the end of the 2020 season. Red Bull saw Perez, who has been on the grid since 2011, as the perfect experienced counterpart to Verstappen. But cracks in their partnership appeared at the end of last season when Verstappen furiously refused to switch positions with Perez in Brazil last season, despite the Dutchman having already won the title.
