First photos of Perez at Red Bull: I'm already starting to feel at home

The first photos of Sergio Perez at the Red Bull Racing factory have been released and the Mexican says he is already starting to feel at home. He speaks of a dream come true.

Big challenge for Perez

Perez is looking forward to working with his new team and teammate Max Verstappen. "It felt great. I had been waiting my whole career for an opportunity at a top team. And finally it was there and at the right time for me. I am really looking forward to working with the engineers and with Max. It's a big challenge for me," Perez said to RedBull.com.

The Sakhir Grand Prix winner is eager to jump into the car and says it feels incredibly good to be part of the Red Bull family. "When you come here you immediately understand why they are so successful. The infrastructure they have, the development and the people who are here. It's very different from the other teams I've worked for."

Dream come true

But Perez doesn't really have to get used to it. Milton Keynes quickly begins to feel like home. "Of course, I've been with one team for seven years, so it does feel different. It's like finding a new family. You are used to seeing the other family, but everything changes. I'm already starting to feel at home, it's a great team and it's really a dream come true."
