Sergio Michel “Checo” Pérez Mendoza, more commonly known as Sergio Perez or just “Checo”, is a racing driver currently competing in Formula 1 with Red Bull Racing. He was born on 26 January 1990, in Guadalajara, Mexico, to Antonio Pérez Garibay and Marilú Mendoza de Pérez. His father, often seen cheering on his son in the F1 paddock, is a politician. The youngest of three siblings, he has an elder sister Paola, and Antonio, who is also a racing driver (now retired) and has competed in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Checo first made his F1 debut with Sauber, back at the 2011 Australian Grand Prix. He stayed with them for two seasons. A disappointing stint at McLaren followed in 2013, after which Perez moved to Force India. Force India, later Racing Point, would serve as his home for seven years.
It is with Racing Point that he won his first race, in a dramatic last-to-first drive at the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix. Perhaps it was this drive that convinced Red Bull to give him a chance, and in 2021, he came in to partner Max Verstappen. His first season saw him in a very impressive role as he played a crucial part in ensuring Max Verstappen gets his 2021 Championship win over Lewis Hamilton. He even earned his second F1 win at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in the same year.
He took a step up in 2022 and competed better on pace with Verstappen, but it was not enough. He did win two races, but unfortunately, he narrowly missed out on P2 in the championship. In 2023, though, he’s went for the World Championship win right from the beginning of the year. At one point in the season, he did almost equal his teammate’s score going into the Miami GP, but he later on fell back in the Championship fight. Here are all the details on the Mexican racer who is all-set to enter his third year as a Red Bull driver in the 2024 season.
