MEXICO CITY, MEXICO - OCTOBER 29: Sergio Perez of Mexico driving the (11) Oracle Red Bull Racing

Racing at home always gives you an extra buzz. You feel the support of the crowd and whilst there are usually a few more PR activations to do in the build up to the weekend, the energy you get from having so much support is exciting, as well as being able to entertain friends and family that don’t often get the chance to see the action up close.

Not all drivers have a home Grand Prix of course. I was lucky enough to have Silverstone, a track I love, but I was also a Brit racing alongside Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. It’s fair to say that most of the crowd weren’t there purely for me!
