Verstappen Brushes off Perez’s Qualifying Struggles: ‘Not My Problem,’ He Asserts.

Max Verstappen remains unfazed by Sergio Perez’s ongoing struggles at Red Bull, emphasizing that it is not his concern.

With an exceptional pole position at the Canadian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen secured his 25th pole position in his career further adding to an impressive stat sheet in Formula One.

The two-time World Champion remains untouchable as he solidifies his position to secure his third consecutive title.

In contrast, Perez who was touted to mount a battle against the Dutch seems to be falling apart in the past three races. His challenges persisted as he failed to progress to Q3 once again, marking a string of disappointing qualifying performances since Miami.

Having crashed out in Q1 during the Monaco Grand Prix and struggling for pace in Spain, Perez’s difficulties continue to mount. However, Verstappen’s commanding lead of 53 points in the Drivers’ standings highlights the monumental task faced by any driver attempting to overturn such a significant deficit in Formula 1 history.

In a conversation with Dutch media after the Qualifying session, Verstappen expressed his thoughts: “Well, if I hadn’t been there it would have looked very different for Red Bull.

“I wouldn’t be happy with not making Q3 three times in a row. I’m not concerned about it either. I’m busy enough on my side of the garage getting everything in order. I pay all my attention to that.”

With Red Bull’s commanding lead over their competitors, the Drivers’ championship had become a showdown between Verstappen and Perez. But with the Mexican driver’s shambolic run of form, Verstappen is clear ahead of the pack.

When questioned about Perez’s struggles, Verstappen responded: “The team must be working on that maybe, but you have to ask them.

“On Friday, of course, I was already busy getting the car better, so then I’m not going to think about that. It’s not my problem.”

On Sunday, Sergio Perez faces a challenging task to score points, even though Red Bull has been dominant. The Milton Keynes-based team relies on his efforts to secure the Constructor’s championship.
