Formula 1 star Sergio Perez has issued a grovelling public apology to his wife after videos emerged of him partying with a bunch of mystery women following his win at the Monaco Grand Prix last weekend.
In a series of potentially problematic clips, the Red Bull driver was seen getting up close and personal with a brunette and dancing with his arms around a blonde on what appeared to be a yacht.
Taking to Instagram on Friday, Perez said he takes "full responsibility" for his actions during what he describes as "a bad party" and happily insists that his relationship with wife Carola Martinez is better than ever.
"I have seen the videos that have been circulating about me and I take responsibility for it. 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 Mexican wrote.
"People close to me know my values and the type of person that I am. For those who ask me, we are more united than ever, me and my wife.
"And for those who just want to hurt us, I wish you the best. Thank you all for your love and I apologize to all the people who love me because those videos don't represent me not at all.
"We will not talk about this topic anymore, which only makes us forget the great moment we are living as a family. Thank you."
Did Sergio Perez do anything wrong? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
Perez is third in the drivers standings behind defending champion, and Red Bull team-mate, Max Verstappen and Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.
Victory in Monaco was the 32-year-old's first of the season – so we can probably forgive him for getting a little wild – and he was later rewarded with a brand new contract to keep him at Red Bull until 2024.
"For me, this has been an incredible week, winning the Monaco Grand Prix is a dream for any driver and then to follow that with announcing I will continue with the team until 2024 just makes me extremely happy. I am so proud to be a member of this team and I feel completely at home here now," Perez said.
"We are working very well together and my relationship with Max [Verstappen], on and off the track, is definitely helping drive us forward even more. We have built tremendous momentum as a team and this season is showing that, I am excited to see where that can take us all in the future."
