Disney+ has announced an exciting documentary, ‘Don’t give up, basta*d’ for the F1 lovers of Latin America on the OTT platform. It’s about the six-time Grand Prix winner and Red Bull Racing driver, Sergio Perez. The Mexican very recently signed a much-awaited contract extension with Red Bull, which will see him race for the outfit until the end of the 2026 season.

Sergio Perez joined Red Bull at the start of 2021 and has since been a solid driver for them. He has won six races and scored 29 podiums and has also been an influential teammate of Max Verstappen in securing the latter’s maiden world championship title.

Disney+ announced that the documentary will feature the highs and lows of the 34-year-old on the race track and also some unseen insights from his life. The exciting documentary series will be available to viewers only across the continent of Latin America.

Perez has had a good start to the 2024 season but has been struggling with pace in the past few races. As the Canadian Grand Prix approaches, he will look to perform better than his previous outings and would like to secure at least a podium.

Red Bull told to expect Ferrari fight around ‘difficult’ Canada

Ex-F1 driver, Giedo van der Garde has claimed that Red Bull will face a tough fight from Ferrari at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit in Montreal. The Maranello-based team has been on the rise with their performances this season.

Ferrari is always good on a circuit with slow corners, where you need mechanical grip and can brake late. Red Bull will definitely be good here as well. They have always won here in recent years with Max and have a super efficient car on the straights. Especially with DRS open, they are just very strong. So I think it's going to be a nice battle between Ferrari and Red Bull.
Giedo van der Garde said in an interview with RacingNews365

Van der Garde has credited Red Bull to being impressively fast around the straights of a circuit like Canada. Thus, he is certain of the team’s ability to maximize their ability around the racetrack. He has also shed light on Ferrari’s superiority in pace around low-speed corners and complicated braking zones which show that the Italian team also has a huge advantage around the 4.361 km circuit.

The Milton-Keynes-based team is currently leading the title race by 24 points and is being chased by Ferrari, who have scored more points in recent races. The Canadian Grand Prix will test both teams to the best of their abilities and thus, an exciting tussle can be expected.
