Watch Sergio Perez Drive Red Bull F1 Car From NY All The Way To Miami

The Mexican Minister of Defense gets too excited for the first-ever Miami Grand Prix.

Formula One will visit Miami for the first time. The Miami Grand Prix is the most recent addition to the calendar of circuits in motorsport, and it will take place in May.

Red Bull driver Sergio “Checo” Perez, on the other hand, appeared to be quite enthusiastic about the race. So much so that he raced his RB18 F1 vehicle all the way from New York City to Miami based on a misheard command from Red Bull Racing principal Christian Horner – all of which was captured on camera (embedded above).

Checo, who earned the nickname “Mexican Defense Minister” for his outstanding defensive play in the 2021 season, had to overcome various challenges along the way, including a parking penalty in Chinatown and a savage crocodile in the Everglades in Florida. The 11-hour journey included two pit stops and full support from Oracle Red Bull Racing’s racing pit crew, as well as a helping hand from Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones.

If you hadn’t noticed, Checo’s interstate drive in his F1 car is fictitious (otherwise, we’d have another DNF), and is part of Red Bull Racing’s promotional movie for the first Miami Grand Prix.

The Miami Grand Prix will take place at the Miami International Autodrome, a purpose-built circuit that wraps around Hard Rock Stadium. It will be 3.36 miles (5.41 kilometres) long, with 19 bends and a planned average speed of 139 mph (223 kilometres per hour).
