Now a Red Bull driver, Sergio Pérez has gained some notoriety at home thanks to his Formula 1 career. However, the Mexican has revealed he never dreamed of it.
At 31, Sergio Perez is undoubtedly one of the best pilots of Formula 1 from the moment. Teammate of Max Verstappen at the house of Red Bull, the Mexican has often done the Dutchman a favor in his quest for a first world title by posing more than one problem for Lewis Hamilton. Present in Formula 1 since 2011 and his debut at Clean, Sergio Perez also acquired a certain status in his country since he is now a famous person. But while he finds it nice to have so much support when he’s on the track, the current driver of Red Bull admits never having especially dreamed of fame.
“I never dreamed of being famous or having so much support”
« Fame ? Let’s say it’s part of the show. I never dreamed of this, I never dreamed of being famous or having so much support. I think my main dream was related to the track. I wanted to have a lot of success on the track. I wanted to be the best driver in the world and I’m chasing my dream, but the rest comes with it. And it’s nice. I have to say it’s really good when I go home and have all this support. I’m very lucky to have him, because few riders have the opportunity to have such support from their country, so I’m very lucky and privileged to have him. But this has a price. Everyone knows you at home, everyone knows where you are, what you do. Everyone wants to tell you how you can do better, what you’re doing well, what you’re doing wrong. It’s part of the game, but I have to say that at the end of the day, it’s a privilege and I’m very lucky to have all of this » thus revealed Sergio Perez in comments reported by Nextgen-Auto.
