Uncertainty looms for Perez as Red Bull future hangs in the balance

P1racenews AI automatic summary:

Sergio Perez recently signed a new contract at Red Bull Racing, but that does not mean the Mexican will automatically stay in 2025, with the fight for the Constructors’ championship looking tight after recent poor performances.

According to RacingNews365, Sergio Perez has been informed by Red Bull that he needs to enhance his performance before the summer break, and clauses in his contract could be activated to replace him from the seat. Perez’s performance has noticeably declined after the Miami Grand Prix, with only 11 points in the last five races and a 19th place grid position at Silverstone. Red Bull has communicated to Perez to improve, with clauses specifying conditions like not falling more than 100 points behind Max Verstappen and not being more than five places behind him. There is pressure on Perez due to his standing in the Drivers’ Championship and the emerging competition from McLaren, Ferrari, and Mercedes. Perez has the upcoming races at British, Hungarian, and Belgian Grands Prix to demonstrate improvement and secure his seat. Daniel Ricciardo has also received a message about his potential replacement, but Yuki Tsunoda and Liam Lawson are other contenders being considered. Carlos Sainz is one of the top options for Audi, while Lawson is also favored and could potentially choose to join Stake instead of Audi.
