Sergio “Checo” Perez takes over Las Vegas in the RB7
What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas, especially when Christian Horner is around.
With just three months to go until the highly anticipated inaugural Formula 1 Heineken Silver Las Vegas Grand Prix, Oracle Red Bull Racing driver Sergio “Checo” Pérez, Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner and the championship winning RB7 F1 car are headed to the entertainment capital of the world for a jumpstart on the fun. Watch Perez retrace his steps from the night before when he took the RB7 from the bustling Las Vegas Strip to the scorched Nevada desert and everywhere in-between.
In this chapter of the Oracle Red Bull Racing Road Trip series, Horner and Checo play a whimsical cat-and-mouse game recapping Checo’s last 24-hours in Las Vegas, which culminates with him misplacing the RB7. Fortunately, the Team needs no Las Vegas luck in finding it – Horner knows everything about his cars, including the location of Checo’s – parked precariously on a casino roof.
Recall the quintessentially Vegas night with Checo and Christian as they meet Elvis impersonators, Vegas showgirls, the iconic Blue Man Group and Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton. With a desert showdown between the RB7 and Bryce Menzies’s massive trophy truck judged by Emilia Hartford, this romp through Sin City runs the gamut of iconic Nevada moments.
Dive into Checo’s unforgettable night and get hyped for the remainder of the 2023 Formula 1 season.
