Helmut Marko scathing with Sergio Perez

Zapping Autonews racing Toyota GR010 Hybrid Hypercar: the competition prototype in video

Sergio Perez doesn’t get better than a fourth place in the French Grand Prix. Worse, he did not reach the podium for the third time in 4 races. Especially since the Red Bull driver was surprised in the last laps, following a computer problem concerning the virtual safety car.

Indeed, when the race was to resume, the green flag did not go off. After a few seconds of waiting, the race finally resumed, allowing George Russell to surprise Sergio Perez for 3rd place.

Helmut Marko, responsible for the young drivers sector within the Austrian team, did not mince his words after the Grand Prix de France:

He must have been sleeping or he drank too much tequila the night before. A stupidly screwed up podium.

It is also the second time in two races that he has attacked Checo Perez. In Austria, the Mexican was knocked out in the first lap by George Russell, which did not help the former Austrian driver:

We said before the start “don’t try the outside in this corner, it’s not possible”. It was just unnecessary. We have seen this before. It does not work.

A situation that can quickly become complicated for Sergio Perez, when he announced that he was still fighting for the title, and that his teammate has a string of good performances.

In short :

Red Bull youth driver pipeline manager Helmut Marko has criticized Sergio Perez’s performance at the French Grand Prix. In question ? The loss of his third place in the last laps of the race.
