Mexican Checo Perez races against Jimmy Fallon on national TV (VIDEO)


Jimmy and Ford President and CEO Jim Farley go head-to-head against Formula 1 driver Sergio “Checo” Pérez in an epic go-kart race.

The Tonight Show is one of the most watched programs in the United States; Hosted by Jimmy Fallon, it has become one of the most anticipated moments for viewers due to its famous guests, who are not only Americans but also Latinos like Guillermo del Toro, Shakira, Bad Bunny and, now, the prodigal son of Guadalajara, Sergio “Checo” Pérez.

Red Bull Racing announced on Friday in New York, the city where the program is recorded, the RB19, the car with which they will compete in the 2023 Formula 1 season and where they also confirmed the union with Ford for the development of the power unit with which will enter the new technical regulations from 2026 leaving Honda behind.

To celebrate this new alliance, Ford organized a go-kart race between Fallon and Checo Pérez with the classic touch of the comedian, from the uniform he wore to the comments to the Mexican before the start of the competition and a celebration worthy of having competed against one of the top three pilots of the previous season in the highest category.
