Red Bull Racing lit up social media as their new boy Sergio Perez visited the factory, had a seat fitting and generally familiarised himself with the team that has made his dream come true.
Today the Mexican grand prix driver was at the Milton Keynes factory which prompted a social media blast documenting the arrival of Max Verstappen’s new teammate in the squad.
Checo said of his coveted Red Bull appointment, “It is a fantastic brand. Of all the teams in Formula One I believed that I had no chance to be part of this since I was never part of their junior program, but when the opportunity presented itself I took it.
“It is a dream come true. When I put on my Red Bull shirt or have a drink from a can I think, Wow, this is the brand I drive for! It is incredible and difficult to imagine. It is an opportunity that I have worked so hard for – for over 15 years.
“I think it has come at the right time, I am ready for that and will take it with both hands. Checo has previously worked with Christian during 2009 in the Arden International GP2 team. “I worked with Christian and his dad, I drove for him during my first season in GP2.
“It is very crazy to think that after 12 years we will be working together again. I admire Christian very much. First of all he is a fantastic person to have around and he is also a great team leader, great moments await us,” added
