Tlisted below are solely two races left till the tip of the season and Checo Perez took a large step in Brazil to realize the runner-up place on this planet championship, successful contemplating all the things that has occurred round him in a poisonous season that has been very tough for him. If nothing unusual occurs, the Mexican driver will certify that place regardless of the specter of Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso.
Now it stays to be seen what he’ll do together with his future. The secret is Checo himself, who has the suitable to resolve with out interference. One other factor is the opinion of every journalist or Formulation 1 fan about what he ought to or mustn’t do. And in my case I’m very clear that if he lastly accepted to resume with Purple Bull it will be a mistake.
It might be a mistake as a result of it will be willingly accepting all the things that has occurred to him this season after he was Max Verstappen‘s nice rival within the first 5 races. Since then, the enemy was in his personal group, both with the disrespect of Helmut Marko or with the contempt that Verstappen’s father as soon as made to him together with his statements.
From the skin, the impression that one has as a Formulation 1 follower is that Checo has fought virtually alone towards everybody, with out having the identical help as Verstappen and being second fiddle in each race for Purple Bull. If he renews it will likely be like accepting that all the things we’ve seen and felt with Checo was false. That or that he undoubtedly accepts that position of being secondary, of Verstappen’s squire and that then in no case might he aspire to struggle to be world champion. To place up with Helmut Marko for one more 12 months would even be horrible.
And I consider that typically it’s preferable to be the pinnacle of the mouse relatively than the tail of the lion, so I insist that it will be a mistake, particularly after what we’ve skilled this 12 months, to proceed at Purple Bull. However it’s his determination and what he does can be very respectable. There is no such thing as a means round that. That he’s an distinctive driver has already been demonstrated, even when what he has needed to endure the entire 12 months has been pleasant fireplace. We are able to solely hope that he does what he needs and will get it proper, though I hope he modifies groups
