Sergio Perez is not happy after the race in Canada. The Mexican had to settle for 6th place in the end. This is not what Perez is used to, considering that this season he is great and mostly in the top 3. However, Canada brought something completely new for him.
Perez is disappointed with the pace and thinks they have to work on it. "Today was a bit of a surprise," he said, as quoted by gpfans.com "We just didn’t have the pace. It was looking good on the hard tyre initially but once the safety car came in I couldn’t recover the grip on that tyre and we didn’t have the pace on the medium." His team will have to think carefully about the future.
There are many things they have to work on if they want Perez to achieve a better result. On the other hand, his teammate, Max Verstappen continued his dominance. "It is important we take time to understand the weekend because this race, in particular, has been poor in pace and we need to get on top of it."
Sergio Perez: I have the confidence in myself
Perez emphasized that he believes in himself.
However, these results spoil the whole picture. Even though he has a great season behind him, results like this in Canada do not bring him anything good. "I have the confidence in myself and know what I can do but today we were not good.
Right now, I am more concerned about my drop in performance than my place in the championship because the pace is just not there." The Mexican is ready to change things in the next races. We have no doubts about his quality, and that the next race will really show who the 'real Sergio' is.
"You never have no pressure on you, it has been a difficult period but I am here to perform and I need to do that in the next few races."
