The driver and the golfer are one step away from obtaining epic results this Sunday in Formula 1 and the Augusta Masters, respectively
MEXICO — Mexico can see two more pages of his sports history written with Sergio perez Y Abraham Ancer, two national athletes who have represented the Aztec nation at an international level, through two sports that are little practiced in the country, such as motor racing and golf.
During the early hours of Sunday, Sergio perez, will start in third position in the Turkish Grand Prix of the Formula 1, where will you look, above your Racing point, get your first win in the top car category.
The Mexican managed to overcome his classification on the starting grid early on Saturday from a previous fourth place to third place, only behind his teammate, the Canadian Lance Stroll, who took the pole, and Max verstappen, which was in second place in the ranking.
Czech can break a 50-year streak since a Mexican climbed to the top of the podium with Pedro Rodríguez, who won the Belgian Grand Prix in 1970.
The 30-year-old driver goes down in history, because at the start of the race he will avoid a direct fight with the Mercedes drivers, the six-time world champion, Lewis hamilton Y Valtteri Bottas, who will come out in places six and nine, respectively.
For its part, Abraham Ancer, is in the leading group of the Augusta Masters, which will be defined this Sunday in search of the ‘Green Jacket’. This would make him the first Mexican in history to win a Masters.
In addition, it may be the best Mexican participation in all the Masters for being a champion, and incidentally, being the fifth debutant to win in such a contest.
Ancer he finished his third round at the Masters with a 69-hit scorecard, -12 under par after 54 holes.
