Can Pérez Verstappen put a foot in the way again?

Sergio Pérez will travel to Melbourne with a good feeling. Last year, the Red Bull Racing driver finished second on the Albert Park street circuit and took his first victory of the current season at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. The Mexican showed that he could handle the pressure from Max Verstappen by sharpening his lap times every time Verstappen did the same. Pérez is therefore only one point behind his teammate in the championship.

After a frustrating Grand Prix weekend in Jeddah, Verstappen naturally wants to hit back in Australia. Due to a problem with the drive shaft, the Dutchman was unable to complete qualifying and had to start fifteenth at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit. The problems came back in the race, but he still managed to cross the line in second place. So Red Bull had to work hard on the car to get the hang of the reliability problems.
