Guenther Steiner calls on Red Bull to offer opportunities to others amid rumors of a one-year contract extension for Sergio Perez.

Sergio Perez has been working at Red Bull since 2021. The former Haas team principal has urged Red Bull to be more inclusive and open to other drivers on the grid, giving them a chance to join the team. Rumors suggest that Red Bull have offered a one-year contract extension to Perez, whose current contract expires at the end of the season.

Günther Steiner has criticized Sergio Pérez’s recent performances, particularly in the last three races, where he failed to qualify beyond Q2 in two of them. Steiner believes that renewing Pérez’s contract will cost Red Bull dearly, as the Mexican driver could potentially hamper their progress.

Despite leading the Constructors’ Championship by a slim margin of 24 points, Red Bull’s recent performances at Monaco and Miami have been disappointing, with Sergio Pérez failing to secure crucial points. McLaren and Ferrari are quickly catching up with Red Bull and are emerging as serious contenders for the constructors’ championship.

Visa Cash App RB’s Yuki Tsunoda has performed impressively and has expressed interest in securing a spot at Red Bull. Steiner also mentioned the availability of other drivers for next season, but only time will reveal who will drive alongside Max Verstappen next season.

A former F1 driver has made a prediction about Verstappen’s potential number of wins by the end of the 2024 season. Verstappen, currently 26 years old, has already claimed five wins from eight possible races this season.

Red Bull’s performance this season has been far from its best, as the team has struggled to find rhythm at certain circuits. While Max Verstappen won 19 races out of 23 last season, he has already failed to win three races this year, indicating a decline in the team’s performance.

McLaren and Ferrari are Red Bull’s main challengers in the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship, due to their strong performances. Red Bull and his team will look to bounce back in the upcoming races in Canada and Spain, to consolidate their position at the top of the standings.
