Perez constantly dreaming of historic Mexico City GP victory

Sergio Perez has revealed he has had numerous dreams of winning the Mexico City Grand Prix ahead of his home F1 race on Sunday.

The Red Bull driver has scored four wins in his career, with two of those this season.

But should Perez top the podium on Sunday at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, he would become the first Mexican driver to win their home race.

The 32-year-old would also join Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and Max Verstappen in an exclusive club of current drivers to do so.

Asked if he had dared to dream of victory, Perez said: "Yeah, I've dreamt a few times already about it.

"It will be massive for me. Obviously, that's the target for Sunday [but] but will not be easy. We need to be perfect throughout the weekend.

"So all the focus will be now on the racing stuff, to try to maximise a weekend.

"At the end of the day, it's another weekend with the same amount of points but it's the most special one for me."

Mexico F1 contract extension "great for our country"

The Mexico City Grand Prix was set to be out of contract at the end of the year, but after already being included on the calendar for 2023, a formal extension for another three years was announced on Thursday.

"This is something great for our country, because this country, we get to show how good that Mexicans are, our Mexican people, our country," added Perez.

"Formula 1 gives you that exposure worldwide, so I'm super proud of my country, that we are able to secure another contract with Formula 1. Super-happy for that."
