As Sergio Perez gears up for the 2024 Formula One season, his future with Red Bull hangs in the balance with his contract set to expire at the end of the year. The veteran driver, however, remains undeterred by the uncertainty surrounding his tenure with the team, choosing to concentrate on the task at hand.

Perez’s perspective on his contract situation was clear during the launch of the Red Bull RB20:

“I think I’m at a great team, being part of the Red Bull family is amazing and we’ll see what the future holds.

“For now, we are fully focused on the start of the year and ideally we will carry on for four more years in this team.”

Amid rumors of potential replacements and the pressure of performing alongside Max Verstappen, Perez maintains his composure, setting his sights on delivering strong performances in the upcoming season.

“No, I think the start of the season is going to be really busy, so we will just be focusing on the first few races. That’s my main objective and I don’t think I am setting any timelines or anything like that.

“I am going to focus on the first five races because to get the most out of it, because it will just be taking a lot of energy out of me and I don’t want any distractions.”

With the recent announcement of Lewis Hamilton’s move to Ferrari in 2025 shaking up the driver market, Perez acknowledges the potential for increased activity but remains steadfast in his approach:

“I’m sure that most of the drivers are going to be willing to get things done a lot earlier in the year.

“But it’s just the approach you have, from my side I am just focusing on having a good year and the rest always takes care of itself as long as you are performing on track.

“I’m not really bothered about it, it’s my 14th season in F1, so for me, the mentality is hitting it well on track.”

As Perez embarks on what could be his final season with Red Bull, his determination to stay focused, motivated, and enjoy racing underscores his professionalism and commitment to delivering results on the track. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding his future, Perez remains resolute in his pursuit of success in the 2024 Formula One season.
