CHRISTIAN HORNER has pinpointed Sergio Perez’s ‘greatest race’ for Red Bull.

The Mexican driver’s incredible ride at the Singapore Grand Prix last year was singled out by the Red Bull chief.

Perez led from start to finish but it was an incident packed race on the street circuit in treacherous wet-dry conditions.

Will Courtenay, Red Bull‘s Head of Race Strategy, recalled: “The heavens opened and the track was pretty wet. You’re on intermediates around Singapore so the grip is low so it’s very difficult for the driver to maintain concentration and not make a mistake.”

The team had to play the perfect strategy, particularly after Perez was hit with a five-second time penalty that meant he needed to build a healthy lead over the chasing Charles Leclerc.

The strategy of the F1 team is examined in the latest episode of PokerStars Between the Lines YouTube series.

In it, Perez himself recalls: “Very difficult decisions, very important to make the right calls at the right times. Very important to manage the race well.

“It was all about opening up the gap to Charles for five seconds and qually laps, one after the other without making any mistakes.”

Perez and Red Bull applied the perfect tactics, playing a waiting game and maintaining their patience before picking the perfect moment to pit.

On Perez’s handling of the conditions and remaining calm, Horner said: “For me the greatest race of Sergio’s career. He did an incredible job to lead from start to finish and held on to take a very memorable victory.”

The latest episode of the PokerStars Between the Lines series comes ahead of this weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone where Red Bull will look to continue their 100 per cent winning start to the season.
