Dutch tabloid newspaper the telegraph is now reporting it, they usually are correct (on this short term) plus their sports redaction is better than the rest of that publication.

The German Speedweek website, which is part of the portfolio of the Red Bull Media House, says that Perez has been chosen and that an official announcement by the team will be made on Friday.
The Dutch newspaper, De Telegraaf, which has close links to Verstappen, also reported on Thursday night that the Perez deal was done.

If they didn't have the deficit to overcome, would they gain the same understanding? Say that you're already ahead, if everyone else is a fair bit behind you how would you know where you can gain?
This is arguable. Look at Mercedes and how they keep finding areas to improve despite being so far ahead.

So is it a 1 year contract ? That would make most sense while they blood Tsunoda. Also gives them leverage with Honda by dangling a Tsunoda promotion to Red Bull in 2022 or 2023 for completing an Engine development program for 2022 over the 21 winter and then handing over to Red Bull, this would also satify Ferrari and Renault by letting the performance freeze happen at the beginning of 2022 rather than end of 2021

I've never understood the voting feature either, many forums have some sort of hierarchy whether it be by votes or number of posts, with some sort of kudos or title attached to it.

It's not needed I'm my opinion, your posts speak for themselves, other uses can make up their own mind on its value.

To be fair, posting a picture of a quote - instead of linking to Ted's race notebook - is a bit like taking a photo of your computer monitor and then emailing it to yourself to print out, so you can fax it to a friend who then scans it into their computer to set as a desktop background :wink:

Really? That’s awesome. I hope Perez really gives Max a headache next year.

RB got a very strong line-up now. Crazy how it sometimes goes, Vettel somehow unexpectedly dropped by Ferrari leading to Perez being pushed out before his contract is over to signing one with one of the big three.
As a driver I personally rate him rather high, I'd expect him to beat Verstappen at least in one third of all occasions. Unless that second seat is actually cursed.
