Red Bull driver Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez issued a statement on Friday in which he apologized for his behavior after winning the Monaco Grand Prix. The Mexican, after getting on the podium, went through several parties and by day was recorded by several of those present getting off a yacht, somewhat affected after the gap.

“I have seen the videos that have been circulating about me and I take responsibility for it. It was a bad party that I didn’t know how to control at the level of the person I am, but it was just that, a very bad party. People close to me know my values ​​and the kind of person I am. For those who ask me, we are closer than ever.

And for those who only want to hurt us, I wish you the best. Thank you all for your love and I apologize to all those people who love me because those videos do not represent me at all. We will not talk about this topic anymore, which only makes us forget the great moment we are experiencing as a family.

Pérez became the most successful Mexican in the history of Formula 1 last weekend after winning the third Grand Prix of his career. In addition, his team rewarded him with the renewal on Tuesday, extending his contract for two more years, until 2024. The defense that Pérez made to Hamilton in the last race of last season, where Max Verstappen was proclaimed champion, one of the images most iconic of recent years.
