2017 is a big year for Sergio Perez, as the Mexican driver looks to perform at a high enough level to improve his chances of a championship challenging drive in future years.

Perez has long been rumoured to be moving to a bigger team since joining Force India in 2014, and his performances in 2017 indicate that the time could well be right for the Mexican driver to once again have a crack at the front of the grid in Formula One.
