Sergio Perez declared his Red Bull move a "dream come true" after his first time on track on Tuesday.

When the team revealed their 2021 car, the RB16B, to the world, the Mexican was completing a full day of running at Silverstone in the 2019 Bull as part of his settling in process.

And though the British weather was on full display, Checo was clearly enjoying himself.

"It's been an amazing day, my first day with Red Bull Racing," he commented afterwards.

"To look at my name on the car, it's something extremely special and something that is definitely a dream come true."

While a shakedown and then testing of the new RB16B will come soon enough, Perez was pleased to be getting some of the basics of joining a new team out of the way.

"I have to say that I'm pleased with the progress we've made in terms of feeling a bit more comfortable," he added.

"Obviously I've been driving in a car for seven years, in a cockpit, in a seat, with certain pedals, so just positioning yourself, it's quite a challenge to get on top of.

"We're working hard. We definitely made good steps in that, and I have to say that for the first day, I felt very comfortable."
