Why Perez won't be broken by his latest F1 disappointments

It has been a tricky past few races for Sergio Perez. The Red Bull driver has mustered just 16 points since the British Grand Prix in July and the team's constructors' championship chances have taken a hit. Yet the Mexican remains optimistic that he has all the tools he needs to turn his performances around

For a driver who is expected to act as Max Verstappen’s wingman and support Red Bull’s Formula 1 title challenge, these have been a tough few weeks for Sergio Perez.

With Mercedes having managed to eke out a bit of a gap in the constructors’ table, and Verstappen pretty much neck and neck with Lewis Hamilton in the drivers’ standings, the contribution from the second RB16B has been lacking of late.
