Video: Verstappen's affectionate gift to Pérez for his third son

Formula 1 can become a category where friends become enemies in a matter of a few seconds. The clearest example is in the fight for the world title in 2014, when the friendship that Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg had from the days of karting turned into a fierce duel until the German said enough after emerging victorious from their battle in 2016.

However, on other occasions, sharing a profession becomes something else, as has happened with Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez. The Red Bull duo has hit it off so well that the reigning world champion gave the Mexican a small but nice gift.


Checo celebrated the birth of his third son before the 2022 Spanish Grand Prix, something we learned about thanks to a photograph he posted on social networks, and we were also able to find out the name of the offspring.

As a gift to welcome little Emilio to the world, the Dutchman prepared a “surprise, surprise” for Pérez . With a video released by Red Bull on its Twitter account, we saw how the one from Guadalajara found some balloons and a bag from the official Verstappen store.

His own garage partner was the one who gave him a blanket, a baby t-shirt, a bib, some socks and stickers so that his son can wear the #33 with which he won last season.

Obviously, Emilio Pérez will be his father’s biggest fan, but the 2021 world champion has wanted him to become one more fan of the ‘orange tide’.

“You’ve brought everything, man!” The Mexican told Verstappen when he was giving him all the gifts, to which the Dutchman replied before continuing to list everything he had prepared for his partner: “Yes, of course!”

“I’m sure he’ll love it,” Checo assured at the end of this beautiful meeting between two teammates who have become friends forever.
