Former Toro Rosso driver criticized Sergio Perez for hindering Lewis Hamilton’s race and trying to slow him down in Abu Dhabi.
Sergio Perez was praised for his exceptional defensive performance against Lewis Hamilton, who is trying to regain his pole position after losing to his ex after his first pitstop.
Hamilton is hunting Perez on degraded soft tyres, and that looks likely to happen soon. However, the Mexicans struggled against the British and allowed Max Verstappen to reduce the short time from seven seconds to just two.

Thus, making the competition more intense for longer laps. While Perez was praised for his efforts, former Toro Rosso driver Sebastien Bourdais beat the Mexican in a battle with Hamilton.
“I think you like racing. It’s BS,” Bourdais said on Twitter, reacting to Will Buxtons’ tweet. “I cannot understand how Perez can be so pleased with himself and how people applaud him for what he has done.
“Deliberately slowing down and using all sorts of dirty tricks to impede Hamilton. The sportsmanship is zero, from the whole team really. ”

Deliberately slowing down and using every dirty trick to thwart Hamilton. No sportsmanship, from the whole team really.

Sergio Perez is a legend
After the glorious battle with Hamilton, Verstappen quickly replied that “Checo is a legend”. That battle played a key role in helping the Dutchman win the championship.
He even mentioned the Mexican in his social media post and thanked him for his efforts. Although there was a huge controversy surrounding how, Verstappen won the race.
