“I am very much looking forward to being in Mexico," said Perez. "This is our national drink, Red Bull, right now. We are forgetting the tequila.
“Mexican’s are really enthusiastic and they love the team. I look forward to being in Mexico and winning the race for them.”
Last year, the Mexican Grand Prix was one of 13 grands prix cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and Perez has insisted he will not take this year's running for granted.
He added: “I’m looking forward massively to getting people back, to basically get to a normal life as soon as possible, as soon as it is safe for everybody and just get the fans back into the grands prix.
“That will be something very special when that happens. I don’t know when that will happen but I have to say that that is the one I am most looking forward to.
“Obviously, to be back in my home country with my people will be very emotional once we have people in the grandstands and it will be something we appreciate more than in the past.”
