Horner rejects this suggestion about Red Bull and Perez

Rumours are flying regarding the future second driver for the Red Bull team. In a statement made to F1Insider, however, Horner emphasizes that the decision will not be made on the basis of money.

Racing Point driver Sergio Perez is looking for a new team for the coming season, and he had enough sponsors to follow him. Red Bull Racing needs both a good second driver and money for starting its own engine program. However, Horner says that Red Bull will not hire a driver because of their money.

Nevertheless, Horner does reject the suggestion that choosing Perez implies choosing his sizeable ‘dowry’: “We already have a business relationship with the Mexicans. Regardless of Formula 1. It is a purely sporting decision. "

Enough candidates

Perez is not the only talented driver suggested to replace Alexander Albon at Red Bull. Nico Hulkenberg is also an option to become Max Verstappen's next teammate.
