Sergio Perez: Red Bull driver will have one eye on Daniel Ricciardo – Coulthard

Sergio Perez needs a “software update” to match Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen and will have one eye on the returning Daniel Ricciardo this year, says former F1 driver David Coulthard. Eight-time grand prix winner Ricciardo is Red Bull’s third driver for 2023. “Checo (Perez) will see that there is a real substitute driver there,” said Coulthard of the Australian’s return. Coulthard, who raced for Red Bull in his final four seasons, said Verstappen is a “benchmark” and Mexico’s Perez’s F1 destiny is “in his own hands”. “Daniel, not being where we knew he could be – he just didn’t look like Daniel of old so this is about him trying to rebuild,” Coulthard said.
