Sergio Perez: Red Bull sign Mexican to race alongside Max Verstappen for 2021

Mexican Sergio Perez has signed to race for Red Bull alongside Max Verstappen next year. Red Bull said Perez had signed “initially on a one-year contract”. Red Bull decided Albon had not performed strongly enough in his 18 months with the team to justify continuing in a race seat. He added that Albon was still a potential contender for a race seat in 2022. Perez made his F1 debut for Sauber 2011, taking a second place for the team at the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix. Red Bull gave Albon every opportunity to justify them keeping him in the seat, but the team were not convinced.
