Formula One driver Sergio Perez has issued a grovelling, public apology to his wife after being caught on camera dancing with women during a ‘bad party’.
Videos emerged showing Red Bull star Perez toasting his victory at the Monaco Grand Prix last month on what appeared to be a yacht, with the 32-year-old seen dancing with his arms around a blonde and getting close to a brunette during the evening.
Taking to social media, he has now taken ‘responsibility’ for his actions, but insisted he and his partner Carola Martinez are ‘more united than ever’.
In a message posted on Instagram, he said: ‘I have seen the videos that have been circulating about me and I take responsibility for it.
‘It was a bad party that I didn’t know how to control at the height of the person that I am, but it was just that, a very bad party.
‘People close to me know my values and the type of person that I am.

On his fresh deal, he said: ‘For me, this has been an incredible week, winning the Monaco Grand Prix is a dream for any driver and then to follow that with announcing I will continue with the team until 2024 just makes me extremely happy.
‘I am so proud to be a member of this team and I feel completely at home here now.
‘We are working very well together and my relationship with Max [Verstappen], on and off the track, is definitely helping drive us forward even more.
‘We have built tremendous momentum as a team and this season is showing that, I am excited to see where that can take us all in the future.’
