At the end of last year, after a long delay, it turned out that Sergio Perez would replace Alexander Albon at Red Bull, Mexico’s task would be to score steadily alongside Max Verstappen. According to an Italian paper, much more was said for Perez than previously thought.
At Red Bull, and even throughout Formula 1, they feel very much in the deck that even if Lewis Hamilton’s contract extension with Mercedes comes together, he will end his career permanently after the 2022 season. In that case, Max Verstappen could be the logical successor, and George Russell could get the other seat.
According to Autosprint, Red Bull wanted to insure itself in the event of a possible loss of Verstappen, leaving it with a much-seen, experienced rider who could safely plant young talent next to it.
This, of course, is all guesswork, but it doesn’t seem like an unrealistic idea.
