F1 star Sergio Perez has been forced to apologise after being caught in compromising positions on camera with a woman who isn’t his wife.
Formula One driver Sergio Perez has apologised to his wife after he was apparently filmed dancing with other women.
Perez, who won the Monaco Grand Prix last month, apparently got close with ladies on what appeared to be a yacht, according to multiple reports. The 32-year-old addressed the situation in a social media message, saying he takes “responsibility for it”.

“I have seen the videos that have been circulating about me and I take responsibility for it,” Perez said, per the Daily Mail.
“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.”
The Red Bull driver added in the message that he and his wife, Carola Martinez, “are more united than ever”, the New York Post reports.
“‘People close to me know my values and the type of person that I am,” he said. “For those who ask me, we are more united than ever, me and my wife.”
Perez, who wed Martinez in 2018, continued that the “videos don’t represent me, not at all”.
“Thank you all for your love and I apologise to all the people who love me because those videos don’t represent me, not at all,” he said.
“We will not talk about this topic anymore, which only makes us forget the great moment we are living as a family. Thank you.”
Perez and his wife have three children together.
Perez is currently ranked third in the drivers’ championship, behind Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.
