The Imola Grand Prix seemed to go as expected for Czech Pérez. The Mexican was nowhere to stay with the pole position of the test, but Lewis hamilton He took 2 thousandths from him, which were decisive for the result. However, starting from the 2nd position, the Mexican had the best expectations. The 11th place obtained in the race was a hard blow, which was not forgiven for some leaders of Red bull: “It’s more than annoying”, they assured.
True to style, Helmut Marko, a senior advisor to Red Bull, didn’t shy away from talking about his newcomer driver. In an interview for the medium ServusTV, which is owned by Red Bull, Marko fired thick rounds at Checo. In his words, the result obtained is a wake-up call for Pérez, who just ran two tests with the energy drink team.
Perez himself was upset when the race ended, and he apologized to his team after the problems. The 10-second penalty he received at the start, then the error that caused him to go outside when trying to regain positions and the lack of rhythm, caused Checo to finish out of the points.
After the bad result, the bad news for Checo was that his teammate Max verstappen took the victory. As is common in Formula 1, the first objective of the drivers is to be able to beat their teammate. However, Pérez could not handle this. That is why the looks began to be a little more critical towards the one from Guadalajara.
«He started well in qualifying. Suddenly, out of nowhere, it marks the second half. So we thought everything was going well. I don’t think he managed to get the tires up to temperature, like Max did. But unfortunately everything went wrong. We put the white tire on it. But with the spin, it’s over. Eleventh place is, of course, more than annoying, ”shot Helmut Marko.
