The career I was leading Sergio perez it was perfect. The Mexican had started in 12th place and with a constant rhythm and a lot of patience began to advance several places. Such is the case, that he reached podium positions after the abandonment of Max verstappen. However, a bad decision from Racing point, led the team to paper.
Lance Stroll he had a very difficult race and was one of the last drivers to cross the finish line. In addition, the Canadian had a horrible pit stop in which he ran over the mechanic who lifts the car to change the tires. The blow was so strong that the team member had to leave limping, being replaced. Fortunately, nothing serious happened and the mechanic only suffered a blow.
This image was the fruit of a series of memes that went viral during the course of the race. The Racing Point team threw overboard what could be the first podium of ‘Checo’ in the season. It should be remembered that the Mexican will abandon the structure at the end of the year, and his future is not yet as clear as it seems.
In addition, the statistics show that since the departure of Sergio Pérez was announced, Lance Stroll did not add points. In addition, Pérez won him during five consecutive great prizes in the final classifier of the race. It remains to be seen whether the decision made for next year by Lawrence Stroll is the one.
Meanwhile on social networks the memes exploded. The pit stop by Lance Stroll and the accident with his mechanic was the starting point for the charges to the Canadian driver. Also, Lawrence Stroll was another target. At the end of the race, Sergio Pérez told the team, without hesitation, that: «Didn’t we learn that you can’t overtake? Another podium that we give away ».
