Sergio Pérez Mendoza (Spanish [ˈseɾxjo ˈpeɾes] ; born 26 January 1990) also known as "Checo" Pérez, is a Mexican racing driver, currently driving in Formula One for Force India.

Pérez was a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy until 2012. He took his first Formula One podium at the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix with Sauber, a drive which won him plaudits and fuelled speculation of a move to Ferrari in the near future. However, Pérez later told reporters that he expected to stay with Sauber until at least the end of the 2012 season. Due to his young age and performance, he has been referred to as "The Mexican Wunderkind".

Pérez joined McLaren for the 2013 season, but the car failed to deliver the team a single podium finish. Subsequently for the 2014 season, the team decided to replace Pérez with Danish driver Kevin Magnussen very late into the season almost leaving Pérez without a seat. In December 2013, it was announced that Force India had signed Pérez in a €15 million deal.

Un día de pocas vueltas al Circuito de Interlagos. No estuve en el auto durante la Práctica 1 y después un problema hidráulico durante la Práctica 2 no nos dejó realizar suficientes vueltas. Nos queda mucho por recuperar de cara a la calificación de mañana. #BrazilGP 🇧🇷 #Checo11 #ForceCheco

Como cuando ya te quieres subir al auto pero apenas es Jueves! 😕 ••• Like when you already want to n in the car but it is just Thursday! 😕
