Sergio Perez was allowed to test the Red Bull RB19 at the Yas Marina Circuit yesterday. Perez gratefully took advantage of that rare opportunity to test and he hopes it will contribute to a better performance in 2024.
“I think my level on Sunday this year was very, very strong. That’s the only reason I finished second in the championship this year,” Perez said in Abu Dhabi. “Especially on Saturdays it has been very difficult this season and it is something I have to work on to make sure it is better next year.”
Barely two days after the last race of the season, Sergio Perez was immediately allowed to get behind the wheel of the Red Bull RB19 for testing. According to Perez, the extra test day came in handy as an aid in preparing for the coming season.
“It’s so educational, it was also productive,” Perez said. “It was good and important to have this time, it was a productive day. Especially after a race, everything is still fresh in my mind.”
“It is very important to have days like this with the team because you can do some homework together. We were able to do a lot and it was very productive.”
“It was indeed a dominant year for Red Bull, but it was a difficult year for me personally. It is what it is. I’m sure we’ll have another great car next year. Hopefully the balance of the car will suit me a little better, hopefully we can continue our dominance as a team into next year.”
