The driver from Jalisco was the Champion in the Grand Prix of Arania Saudi Arabia.
Dominating practically from start to finish and with no surprises, Red Bull’s Sergio “Checo” Perez was the champion in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix by dominating at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, his second podium of the season, the 28th of his career and his fifth victory in his Formula 1 career.
The podium was identical to last year’s race in Bahrain, but the order is now different, with the Mexican in the lead, leaving behind his teammate Max Verstappen and Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso, who finished the race in second and third, respectively.
Sergio Perez was close to become leader of the drivers’ season by matching Verstappen in points, but with an extra point for the lap record achieved at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, his teammate took away that possibility.
The next stop for the Formula 1 Grand Circus will be on Saturday, April 1 at the Australian Grand Prix.
