Despite the fact that things are not going exactly ideal for him this season, Sergio Perez shows that he is a great man who wants fair races. For him, the most important thing is not to injure anyone, to achieve a good result, and to help his team.

The race in Brazil was an opportunity for the Mexican to make a great result. He had a tough fight with Fernando Alonso, who eventually finished ahead of him. However, the most important thing for Perez is that no one is injured in this duel.

He believes that this battle can be an example for other F1 drivers. “It was quite an intense battle! We tried everything,” Perez said “Unfortunately we didn’t succeed. It was well-deserved for Fernando.

We had a great fight, very fair, to the limit. This is something a lot of drivers can learn from! The way we fought today was how it should be done. I’m on the wrong side, I ended up losing, but it’s fine because it was a great fight”.

The Mexican finished the race in an impressive P4. Although he had demonstrated the pace in previous races, there were instances where he lacked the confidence and assertiveness needed to secure better results.

However, he is aware that this performance can be viewed as a positive sign for the future “We’ve seen in the past couple of races that the pace has been there, that we’ve been really strong. For some reason, we haven’t been able to get the final result.

I just know that it’s a matter of time”. Fernando Alonso finished the race in an outstanding second place, securing P2, while his teammate Lance Stroll delivered a solid performance, crossing the finish line in fourth place.

“They were very fast today,” Perez said. “They were good looking after their tyres”. Source: Crash
