“If I had been Perez, I would have kept my helmet on after that race"- Former F1 driver criticizes Sergio Perez despite P2 at 2022 F1 Belgian GP – Sportskeeda

Former F1 driver Christijan Albers admitted that he does not agree with Sergio Perez’s reputation as a “tire whisperer,” emphasizing that he would personally be embarrassed by the drive in Spa last weekend if he was Sergio Perez.
The Red Bull driver was only able to set the third-fastest time in qualifying at the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix and started the race in second after pole-sitter Max Verstappen took an engine penalty and started fourteenth. Despite this, the Dutchman was able to gain the lead within the first twelve laps, moving past his teammate who was significantly slower.

Speaking about Sergio Perez’s improvement and his expectations from the team going ahead, Red Bull team advisor Helmut Marko told Sky Deutschland:
Marko also confessed that Red Bull did not expect Max Verstappen to regain the lead as easily and quickly as he did last weekend at the Belgian Grand Prix:
Red Bull started off the year with a nightmare weekend at the season opener in Bahrain, only to quickly regain their momentum within a couple of races. Sergio Perez confessed, however, that while he accepts that the car has gotten quicker over time with constant developments, he does not feel the same level of comfort with the RB18 as he did at the start of the season. On the other hand, his teammate is on an absolute roll, with a whopping nine race wins to his name so far.

Perez also talked about their plans for the car:
With his second-place finish at the Belgian Grand Prix last weekend, Sergio Perez is now up to second in the drivers’ standings ahead of Charles Leclerc, who had an underwhelming P6 finish in Spa.
