F1 2022: Checo Prez becomes the first Red Bull driver to overtake Max Verstappen in four years

ANDhe start of season for the Red Bull drivers, Max Verstappen and Sergio Prez, has been opposed. While the reigning world champion wears one win and two retirements (translated into 25 points), the Aztec pilot has to his credit a retirement, a fourth place and a second place that mean 30 points and, with it, the first time Mad Max has been outdone by his teammate in four years.

We have to travel to 2018 to see a Max Verstappen ‘in secondary plan’ again. Daniel Ricciardo was the one who ‘passed’ Mad Max in the pilot classification, a fact that repeated sergio prez the last weekend.

The 30 points leave Checo Prez as the best Red Bull driver after three races. However, the above it has not been the cause of fights with Max Verstappen, who, before thinking about that and fighting for a second drivers’ championship, his goal is not add more dropouts in the season.

With 19 races to go and waiting for Max Verstappen’s reaction, Sergio ‘Checo’ Prez enjoys his privileged position at Red Bulla place you won’t want to let go of in order to maintain your aspiration to win as many races as possible and fight for the drivers’ championship title.
