F1: Beyond The Grid

Sergio Perez: stronger in 2024

Listen on

Episode notes

Sergio Perez secured a career-best P2 in the Drivers’ World Championship in 2023. But in one of the most dominant Formula 1 cars in history, Checo spent much of the year stuck in the shadow of his unstoppable teammate Max Verstappen.

Despite one of Sergio’s most mentally challenging seasons, in which he faced serious questions about his future at Red Bull Racing, the Mexican is in fighting spirits for 2024.

Chatting to Tom Clarkson in the first episode of F1 Beyond The Grid’s new series, Perez talks about where it all went wrong last year, why it’s so difficult to beat Max, how he switched off during the off-season, what he’s changing in his approach for the new campaign, and much more.

Plus, hear how Checo Jr could be following in Sergio’s footsteps - and which F1 driver he’d want to be stuck in a lift with!
