Racing Royalty Speaks: The F1 Saudi Arabian GP Through Michael Schumacher's Eyes

Updated: Apr 1

Sergio Perez Dominates with the Help of Red Bull's Great Car

The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was an impressive showcase of racing excellence, with Sergio Perez putting on a dominant performance to take the checkered flag. With the help of Red Bull's fantastic race car, Perez was able to secure pole position and cruise to victory, leaving his competitors in the dust. As an F1 legend myself, I can appreciate the level of skill and strategy required to achieve such an impressive result.

Max Overcomes Mechanical Issues to Finish Second

Max Verstappen's performance at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was impressive. Despite qualifying in 15th place due to mechanical issues, Verstappen was able to battle his way to a second-place finish. His 79th career podium places him just one away from the great Ayrton Senna's tally, and his 21st consecutive finish is a testament to his reliability and efficiency on the track. While anything less than victory is typically unacceptable for Verstappen, his performance at the Grand Prix was nothing short of remarkable.

McLaren's Painful Start to the Season Continues

Unfortunately for McLaren, the team's painful start to the season continued at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Oscar Piastri's strong qualifying performance quickly turned sour when he made contact with Pierre Gasly on the opening lap, forcing him to stop at the end of the lap. Debris from the incident also damaged Lando Norris's front wing, forcing him to retire. With McLaren sitting at the bottom of the constructors' championship and one of only two teams yet to score this season, the team has a long road ahead if they hope to turn things around.


it's always exciting to see new drivers emerge and established teams continue to push the limits of what's possible on the track. The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was no exception, with impressive performances from Perez, Verstappen, and many others. While McLaren may be struggling at the moment, there's always hope for a turnaround, and I look forward to seeing what the rest of the season has in store.
