Christian Horner believes that Sergio Perez is now feeling at ease in his RB16B and becoming more confident with the quick machine.


  • Perez claimed his third consecutive podium at the Mexico City Grand Prix, showing his growing confidence.
  • Perez is needed more than ever during these final four races as Red Bull takes the title fight to Mercedes.

What he had to say:

  • “His confidence has been growing. I think this car isn’t the easiest car to get your head around. It took him a few races earlier in the year, but I think he’s worked it out,” Horner commented on the F1 Nation podcast
  • “We’ve managed to help him a bit with the setup, and of course, the biggest thing is confidence. I think the confidence, for him, is really coming, and the belief of what he can do.”
  • “It’s at the right time, because we really need him to be a factor in the next four races.”
