Following the release of Puerto Rican music star Bad Bunny’s single ‘Monaco’, it’s been discovered that Sergio Perez features in the music video, which parts of were clearly filmed during the Monaco Grand Prix earlier in the season.
Since being released last Friday, the music video on YouTube has surpasses 5.55 million views, whilst it’s already been streamed over 12.4 million times on Spotify.
The song is already #1 on the global Spotify chart and has broken the record for the most streams in a day for a solo Latin song, with it being predicted to do very well over the coming weeks.
Perez’s part in the music video is minimal, whilst Max Verstappen’s car is also included.
In the music video, Bad Bunny is seen taking a photo with the Mexican driver on a super-yacht, before trying on the Red Bull driver’s helmet.
Perez is seen smiling and laughing in his short appearance in the music video, two things he certainly wasn’t doing during the Monaco GP itself.
It was back at the Circuit de Monaco where the 33-year-old’s season started to spiral out of control, as he heavily crashed out of qualifying in Q1.
Ever since crashing in Q1 at Monaco, Perez has lacked confidence, with Q3 appearances having been rare for the remainder of the season.
With just five points in the last three races, he’s now under immense pressure just to remain second in the Drivers’ Championship.
His poor form has allowed Lewis Hamilton to reduce his advantage to just 30 points with five races remaining, despite the seven-time World Champion having an inferior car.
Whilst Perez does have a contract to race for Red Bull next season, it’s widely believed that not finishing second in the standings will be viewed as unacceptable by the Milton Keynes-based team.
Perez’s need to try and rediscover his early-season pace in the remaining five rounds, for the sake of not only his championship position but also for this Red Bull future.
There were even reports that he was going to retire at the end of 2023, although his PR team has rejected these suggestions and insisted that there is no truth behind them.
