The talented Mexican driver, Sergio “Checo” Perez, has been experiencing ups and downs in the last three Formula 1 races. With a 16th-place finish in Monaco, a fourth-place finish in Spain, and a sixth-place finish in Canada, the results have not been what the driver expected.
These results have affected his performance in the current season, even though he has two victories to his credit (Saudi Arabia and Baku). Despite this, he remains in an outstanding second position in the drivers’ standings, accumulating 126 points.
While Checo is working hard on the track, at home, the news is pure joy, as the driver from Guadalajara will receive the blessing of becoming a father for the fourth time. His wife, Carola Martinez, was the one who shared the exciting news through a story on her Instagram account, where she showed her beautiful pregnancy.
The love story between Checo Pérez and Carola Martínez began in 2017 when they became sweethearts, and the following year, in 2018, they married.
Since then, they have formed a beautiful family that has not stopped growing. In their first year of relationship, in 2017, “Chequito” was born. Then 2019, Carlota came into the world, and in 2022, little Emilio joined the clan.
With the news of the arrival of a new baby, the Mexican driver finds an additional reason to recover his best level on the tracks and return to the path of triumph. Undoubtedly, this new member of the Pérez-Martínez family will be a source of inspiration and motivation for Checo in his sporting career.
His passion for racing and the unconditional love of his family will undoubtedly drive Checo Perez to keep giving gas in Formula 1, both on the track and in his family life.
Checo Perez shows his frustration after the Canadian GP
But he congratulates Max Verstappen for his historic victory.
Sergio “Checo” Pérez could not hide his disappointment with himself after failing to achieve the desired result at the Canadian Grand Prix 2023, where he finished sixth, while his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen took the victory.
Checo Perez expressed his frustration with the complicated weekend he had at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal through social networks.
The Mexican driver started in 12th position after an unfavorable strategy in qualifying and struggled to find pace in both qualifying and the race.
“It was a difficult weekend. We didn’t manage to find pace in both qualifying and the race. We are going to work very hard to turn this around. We know we can do it and we will come back with everything,” explained Checo Perez on his Twitter account after the end of the Canadian GP 2023.
At Red Bull, the situation contrasts between its two drivers. While the Mexican has been off the podium in the last three Formula 1 races, world champion Max Verstappen continues to dominate by taking his 41st career victory, equaling Ayrton Senna‘s record in that category.
Against this backdrop, Checo Perez took the time to congratulate Max Verstappen on his win at the Canadian GP and Red Bull’s historic 100th victory.
“Congratulations to Max for helping Red Bull achieve victory number 100″ today, Checo Perez wrote on his Twitter account. However, Formula 1 fans once again questioned the Mexican driver’s ability to match the Dutchman’s performance in the Grand Circus.
Despite the recent challenges, Checo Perez remains determined to work hard and return to the competitive level that has characterized him throughout his career. The Mexican driver is confident that he will be able to reverse the situation and prove his worth in the next races of the Formula 1 season.
