Sergio Perez has provided Red Bull with information on how Racing Point (Aston Martin) used tyre pressures to increase their performance

Earlier this year before the start of the season in March, Dr Marko was on Servus TV talking about what's to come of the 2021 season. During this interview Dr Marko specifically mentioned the knowledge that Checo brought with him from Racing Point (Aston Martin) with regards to how the team used tyre pressures to their advantgae to bring performance to the tyres: >''Sergio adapted well right away. He drove the two-year-old RB15 at Silverstone and has also been in the simulator a lot. He was able to give us as many interesting details about the responsiveness of the Mercedes engine,'' Helmut Marko said in a conversation with Servus TV. Perez did not only have information about Mercedes, however. >**''Sergio also gave information about tyre pressure. It was with this that a Force India (Racing Point) was suddenly at the front of the grid in qualifying in the rain. Sergio's experience in dealing with tyres is very important.** If you have him alongside young Max, you might have the best driver duo.'' [Source](https://www.gpblog.com/en/news/79366/perez-provides-red-bull-with-information-already-given-many-interesting-details.html) The reference to qualifying in the rain here is the [2020 Turkish GP](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Turkish_Grand_Prix#Qualifying_classification) where both Racing Point (Aston Martin) drivers performed exceptionally well, Lance Stroll in P1 and Sergio Perez in P3. In the race the drivers finished P9 and P2 respectively. Those of you who've watched this race weekend will remember the treacherous conditions in the wet exacerbated by a newly laid track. Teams struggled to bring their tyres up to temperature on the new low grip surface, Mercedes famously taking ~7 laps to get the wet tyres into the correct operating temperature with Bottas taking the crown of the most spinningest driver of all time. So we come to the 2021 Azerbaijan GP, 2 tyre failures, 2 different teams. Which teams? Red Bull and Racing Point (Aston Martin). Just a coincidence? Discuss.
