be treated of the first of three Grand Prix where Checo will act practically as the local driver and it is that the stands will be full not only of Mexican fans, but also of Latinos who see Prez as a representation within the Great Circus.
That support in the stands can be key for the Mexican to get fully involved in the fight for the drivers’ championship, where he currently appears in third place but only five points behind his teammate Max Verstappen.
Czech adds two podiums as ‘local’ in 2021
The previous season there was still no such Grand Prix in Miami, however, both in Austin and in Mexico City, Checo Prez managed to get on the podium, which allowed him to sign an extraordinary closing in the championship after an uncertain start after adapting to a new team.
With this background and with the high level shown at the start of this 2022 campaign, the Mexican fans begin to dream of seeing their driver on the podium this upcoming weekend in Florida.
Another factor in favor of the Mexican is that His possible renewal with Red Bull remains in the air and the team has set a summer deadline, so he will seek to prove that he is the one to fill that seat in 2023.
