But on Sunday itself in the Principality of Monaco, and as indicated by the tradition of the team of the bull, the man from Guadalajara jumped into the pool located in the urban circuit of Montecarlobut he did not do it alone, but was accompanied by former Mexican President Felipe Calderón.
The political leader of the PAN was in the place carrying out tasks as director of the Environment and Sustainability Commission of the International Automobile Federation (FIA).
Hundreds of comments from users in Mexico, a country that is very politically polarized, expressed criticism of the fact, many of them typical of the poison of state reality.
Among the toxic comments posted on the social network Twitter, some pointed out that Sergio’s father, Antonio Pérez Garibay, is a deputy for the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) party. and an active member in favor of the so-called “Fourth Transformation” carried out by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
A lots of They described Pérez Garibay as a “traitor” who should be subjected to a “political trial” for what he did for his son. But apart from arguments full of hate and meaninglessness, the leader of Morena clarified on W Radio that he knows and is a “friend” of Felipe Calderón, who lent support to his son on his way to reach F1 .
“We are friends of all the former presidents of Mexico who are currently living, we do not carry other people’s colds, my love is for Mexico and my son’s too; We have a lot to thank Calderón for, he was the one who supported Checo to get to Formula 1”Antonio Perez Garibay
In addition, the idea that Calderón was in the pool was not from the former president himself, but from Checo Pérez who was with him celebrating and spontaneously pulled it in the dip.
Before the race, the 32-year-old Mexican made a bet with renowned journalist Juan Fossaroli before the race, that if he won the GP they would jump into the famous pool together. Finally, the communicator and F1 expert had to comply and it was Checo himself who pushed him.
Everything is joy in the environment and career of Sergio Pérez. His teammate, Max Verstappen, commands the classification of the highest category, while he is third, in addition to that the Red Bull team commands the constructors’ table with 235 points.
