Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen may have no choice but to welcome Sergio Perez into the title picture, starting in Baku this weekend.
Perez stole victory from Ferrari’s Leclerc last time out at the Monaco F1 Grand Prix to suddenly announce himself as a championship threat.
Red Bull now find themselves with Verstappen and Perez in the hunt – whether that’s beneficial or problematic for Christian Horner’s side will be one of the main talking points in Azerbaijan.
Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are yet to fully resolve their ongoing issues, but the seven-time world champion says he wants his car to finally be competitive by Silverstone in early July, so he will aim for a strong run-out at the race he won in 2018.
Perez, by the way, won this race last year and repeating this result, soon after his exploits in Monte Carlo, would put the cat among the pigeons.
