Sergio Perez believes he has been taken to "another level" by Red Bull's continuous pursuit of perfection in F1.

Mexican Perez was given the chance to be a front-runner by Red Bull having been dropped by Racing Point [now Aston Martin] in favour of four-time champion Sebastian Vettel for 2021.

The 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix victor added to his tally with victory in Baku and a flurry of podiums in the second half of the season ensured a top-four finish in the drivers' standings.

Asked in an interview involving GPFans what he had learned across his first season with a championship-challenging team, Perez replied: "A lot to be honest.

"Red Bull really pushes you to the maximum. Not just the drivers, [but] the engineers, the mechanics, the team bosses.

"Everyone is flat-out working to deliver the perfect result, the perfect moment for everyone. It's been a tremendous experience and it has brought me to another level as a driver."

On his approach heading into his second term with the team, Perez explained: "Well, we already have a baseline that we can work from and improve that one so that makes a huge difference.

"I already know the people. I already know who to ask what and how to get the most out of every single individual around me. That's a very different picture."
