Sergio Perez has shared his festive spirit, sending a Christmas present to all 1,400 Red Bull employees. Perez played an important role in Red Bull’s first Constructors’ Championship in nine years, after finishing second behind teammate Max Verstappen in the drivers’ standings.

The Mexican star has been quick to recognise that the team’s success has not just been down to the work of himself and teammate Verstappen on the track. As a result, Perez also had every other Red Bull employee in his thoughts following a year to remember.

To show his appreciation, the driver gave a Mexican-inspired gift to every one of his colleagues by giving each a bottle of Tequila. The Tequila is produced by Patron, a company Perez has a brand deal with. 

Along with the bottle of booze, the gift bag also came with a message from the 32-year-old. It read: “Thank you for all of your hard work and support this season. I’m so proud to be part of the Red Bull family.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday. Enclosed, please enjoy a bottle of the number one super premium tequila in the world, Patron tequila. Looking forward to next season. Salud! Checo Perez.”

Despite playing his part in Red Bull’s title successes, there have been rumours that the Mexican could well surrender his seat at some point in 2023 after the arrival of Daniel Ricciardo as a third driver. Perez however has admitted he is ‘pretty relaxed’ about Ricciardo’s arrival.

He told Sky Sports: “I’m pretty relaxed. I mean, we live under a lot of pressure all the time. It doesn’t change anything from my side, I think it’s a great achievement for the team to have a driver like Daniel and he’s going to contribute a lot to our team.

“He’s a great guy. He’s one of the guys that I get on [with] the most in the paddock, so I think it’s just great to have Daniel in the team, and from my side it doesn’t change anything.”
