The 11-minute clip begins with “Checo” in a hotel room in New York, receiving a late-night call from team principal Christian Horner. Mistaking “May” for “today,” Perez quickly looks on his phone for the fastest route to Miami. While it takes an average family car 19 hours to complete the journey, the screen says it only takes a Red Bull Formula 1 car 11 hours to cover the 1,950 miles, and Perez quickly jumps into his racer, taking off into the night.
Aside from making a stop in China Town to pick up a Red Bull drink on the way, we also see Checo drive through some of the more iconic locations and landmarks across the U.S. on his way down to Miami, and even coming head to head with an alligator before encountering other Red Bull-sponsored athletes such as Parks Bonifay, Byron Jones, Reilly Opelka, Jamie Foy and Zion Wright.
