Sergio Perez prepares for his season with Red Bull. He had a phenomenal year with Racing Point this season. Although he could secure only one win with another P2 finish, his style was extraordinary. It was his consistency the entire season that convinced the Austrian team to reel him in.
When Checo looks back on the year, he will have several memories to cherish. His podium at Turkey, his win at Sakhir. However, there will be one memory that haunts him. Being axed off from the Aston Martin team for 2021. After, all he had done for Racing Point, the decision was unprecedented.
Sergio Perez looks ahead of his past. Agreed that his brutal axing had given him some sleepless nights. However, after Red Bull rumors surfaced, Checo simply improved his game and got better. As a result, Red Bull had to choose him over Albon. They could not risk another year, and Checo was the obvious choice.
Sergio Perez was the most worthy of the seat at Aston Martin in 2021. However, they hoarded Lance Stroll alongside Vettel. Of course, the reasons are obvious. But when fate favors the one, none can bring him down. Earlier, Checo took a slight dig at Aston Martin on Instagram after the team’s transformation.
Aston Martin announced their return to F1 earlier yesterday. Well, among the excitement of the fans, one comment was grabbing a lot of attention. It was Checo’s comment that had his fans rolling over. ” Who is thiiis? Ok, I will still follow you,” read Checo’s comment.

Sergio Perez and Aston Martin rivalry
Well, Sergio Perez will have competition on track next year. Incidentally, a major portion of that would be from his former team. After Aston Martin upgrades with new strategies and a new pilot lineup, they may threaten Red Bull. Already they have bypassed them several times this year, next year would be easier.
Next year at Aston Martin, setting Stroll and Vettel alongside would be the biggest challenge to them.
The competition gets spicy next year. With three English constructors in the game, and three more European, the battle for glory will be exciting.
Aston Martin left the sport almost half a century ago. Well, they would look forward to returning with a blast. Lawrence Stroll gets them back on the track, but will he be able to win races for them? If they can build on Racing Point’s year, better for them. If they can’t, it will be a tough season for them.
