Popular Mexican driver Sergio Perez turns 26 today. To celebrate, we will be counting down his top five races during his time in F1.

Perez has certainly had an inconsistent time in his six seasons in Formula One so far. However, 2015 finally seemed to break the curse, in his second year with Force India, the former Sauber and McLaren driver excelled when the team switched to their B-spec car midway through the year.

In Russia, the Mexican picked up his fifth podium of his Formula One career and will be hoping to add to his podium tally in 2016 when he embarks on a third season with Force India.
