One of the most emotional stories of the Mexican Grand Prix was revealed today by Antonio Perez Garibay, father of Mexican driver Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez, which has as protagonists his son and the Monegasque Charles Leclerc, and the latter told the driver how happy he was to see the Perez family celebrating at the Hermanos Rodriguez, and that he would have liked his father could have done the same with him.
“Checo received a call yesterday from Charles Leclerc and told him: ‘Checo, you don’t know how happy I was to see your parents celebrate like that; it brought tears to my eyes, I would have loved for my father to see me. I didn’t know that Charles’ father had passed away and that Charles had spoken to Checo,” revealed Perez Garibay in an exclusive interview for MARCA Claro MVS.
Hervé Leclerc, father of the now Ferrari driver, passed away in June 2017, and has always been Charles’ motivation in his Formula 1 career, and this weekend showed that rivalries are only sporting.
Charles is such a great guy and this further shows it. Really do wish the best for him.
