Cwith full motivation after consuming an itchy comeback at Silverstone, the Mexican Red Bull driver, Sergio ‘Checo’ Prez lands in Austria to seek to break one more curse in his career.

Checo has never been on the podium at the Red Bull Ring, the same situation he faced last weekend in Great Britain and which he managed to reverse into a movie closure.

“I am coming off a very satisfying result at the British Grand Prix. I always say ‘Never Give Up’, and that was the case at Silverstone. We hadn’t had the best weekend up to that point with the car, but in the end it managed to get on the podium and we can be proud of that.” declared the Red Bull.

Checo has been on the podium in 16 different layouts, however, Austria is one of the countries where the man from Jalisco has never finished in the top three places.

With that confidence Pérez will seek to prolong his great moment and obtain his seventh podium of the campaign, nothing more and nothing less than on the home circuit of your team.

As if those reasons were insufficient to captivate the Mexican, Checo remains in second place in the drivers’ world championship, closing the gap with Max Verstappen, who to look to beat this weekend.
