Sergio Perez has claimed the nature in which F1 evolves pushes drivers to the "absolute maximum".

The Mexican moved to Red Bull last year after a seven-year stint with the team now known as Aston Martin through its various guises, finishing fourth in the standings with a win to his name in Baku.

Perez struggled at the start of his tenure in the second Red Bull seat but found improvement to warrant his stay for the upcoming campaign.

Despite being one of the most experienced drivers on the grid, Perez told Tag Heuer's The Edge podcast he was constantly learning in F1.

“I think every time there is a new challenge, every time you face a new… this is the beauty of this sport that it is not always the same.

“I have been in this sport for 11 years and I am still learning new ways because the sport is constantly evolving, so you are always facing new challenges, new ways of driving, new ways of communicating to your team.

“So I think you don’t stop [pushing]. It is not like [when] you have experience, you know what to do and you don’t have to work anymore. This sport pushes you to your absolute maximum and it is not only on track, it is off track as well.

“It’s why I love and I enjoy Formula 1 so much because it is always a new challenge. It never gets boring, it never gets old.

“There is always a lot of changing involved, a lot of things you have got to learn.”
