Eddie Jordan commented on rumors about the possible replacement of Sergio Perez by Daniel Ricciardo after the first races of the new season if the Mexican driver remains noticeably inferior to his teammate. The former team manager thinks that Red Bull Racing will not take such a step this season.
Eddie Jordan: “Sergio has started 2023 well. After several victories, he felt himself on the rise, and then suddenly realized that Max also became involved in the work and could reach the highest level, which he lost only at the end of the season. Max is the most difficult partner you can imagine.
Max is a great asset to the team, but now there is so much talk about a possible replacement for Sergio, but personally I don’t think this scenario is feasible. I think he has a contract and Red Bull is a team of honorable people in every respect, so I don’t think we should even talk about replacing Perez. I think he will stay with the team next season.”
