Podcast: Can Sainz and Perez avoid the ‘number two’ trap?

Jan 25 2021

Sergio Perez and Carlos Sainz Jr have already started work with their new Formula 1 teams in preparation for the 2021 season, but what are the chances of them defying expectations and proving to be more than support acts to Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc?

The latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast focuses on Perez and Leclerc’s preparation as they settle into their new surroundings at Red Bull and Ferrari.

Perez was at Red Bull’s Milton Keynes base last week and spoke in depth about his expectations for the coming season for the first time, while Sainz is due to test Ferrari machinery for the first time with a day-and-a-half of running in the 2018 S71H at Fiorano on Wednesday and Thursday.

Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell join Edd Straw to discuss why the two were signed and how they are likely to perform, as well as delving into the thorny topic of what exactly makes a number two driver.
