Czech Pérez came to Red bull with two objectives. The first of them is that the team has a pilot duo that is up to the team. The second is to be able to fight Max verstappen, who for the first time in a long time will have a competitive teammate alongside him. In the Imola Grand Prix, Pérez managed to beat the Dutchman, although he could not stay with points. «We should have won«, He lamented.
In qualifying for the race two weeks ago, Checo was one of the favorites to win. He started in second position and did not stay on pole for less than a second. However, in the race he had a series of errors that condemned him to be left out of the points, finishing in 11th place, behind Fernando Alonso, that if he could collect a unit.
The Mexican spoke before the race to be run this weekend at the Portimao circuit, Portugal, ensuring that the performance of the last Grand Prix left him mixed feelings. From second place to the disaster of the race, there were two faces. However, he hopes to be able to get the victory or at least a podium this Sunday.
“I am very happy with my progression after qualifying in the front row at Imola. I think I even surprised myself by being so fast in my second race weekend at Red Bull, and being able to get the most out of the car in such a short time, “said Checo, as shared by Spanish media Mundo Deportivo.
“Looking back, I think being able to adapt to a car gives me a huge boost of confidence. I am beginning to understand the car and that is the most positive. Everyone is working very hard to improve the car. That is the goal. Imola was a great missed opportunity, since I think we should have won, but we hope that this weekend, “said the one from Guadalajara.
