Sergio Perez Red Bull seat is in danger!

The 2024 F1 season will be remembered for the dominance of the Red Bull F1 team. The reason is that they won 21 Grand Prix out of the 22 Grand Prix in the season. Among those 21 Grand Prix, 19 were won by Max Verstappen and the remaining two by Sergio Perez. Both drivers finished first and second in the championship, and it was an incredible season for the Red Bull F1 team.

While Max Verstappen was dominating the entire season, Sergio Perez was quite inconsistent and struggled on various occasions. There were several rumors that Daniel Ricciardo would replace him mid-season and Perez would be a part of the Alpha Tauri team. But after some great results at the end of the season, he finished second in the driver championship and secured his seat in the 2024 season.

Well, the question of Sergio Perez’s seat in the 2025 season is still in danger. Recently, in an interview, Christian Horner said something that will clarify why his seat is in danger.

“It is very much Checo’s seat to lose rather than exploring other options.”

Here is the full statement:

“It is Sergio Perez’s seat to lose, and there is a good dynamic between the two drivers. There always has been. So let us see how 2024 pans out. But it is very much Checo’s seat to lose rather than exploring other options.”

Well, if we look at Sergio Perez’s 2024 season, he finished second in the drivers’ championship. But he was inconsistent in qualifying and, on several occasions, started outside the top 10. Also, he had two DNFs and missed out on points on three different occasions.
