Sergio looks back at the website Red Bull Racing 's website and looks back at the first thirteen Grands Prix of 2022. He certainly showed at this year's start that he can handle the new cars in Formula 1 well and says in the interview that he is also a lot more comfortable in the car.

The dream victory

Perez is off to a good start in 2022. The Mexican captured six podium finishes in the first thirteen races of the year, culminating in a win on the streets of Monaco. "It was a dream come true to win in Monaco, to have that in my pocket feels great," he said.

On the way to the title

Perez and teammate Max Verstappen are doing good business for the team in both championships. The Dutchman leads the drivers' championship, while 'Checo' holds third spot. In the constructors' battle, Red Bull leads by 97 points. Despite the large lead, the team is not going to sit back. "It’s great to have the Team where it is at the moment, but we cannot take anything for granted," he said.

The success is partly down to Perez clearly feeling at ease in the new Formula One cars. "The RB18 is a very different car to last years, but I’m much more comfortable in this car as you can see with the performances and consistency that we’ve had so far this season."
