Sergio Perez says he has no doubts about his recovery this year as he wants to focus on reversing the situation in the remaining seven races that remain until the end of the current season. The Mexican was brought to Red Bull in order to reach the desired goal with his teammate: winning the title.
However, Perez is not even a shadow of the driver who was considered a high-ranking driver at Racing Point (now Aston Martin) last year. The Mexican driver is unable to keep up with Max Verstappen. His performance in the qualifiers is quite poor, considering what kind of car he drives and the lag he has behind the Dutchman.
In the race, Sergio manages to do something, but that’s not enough for the appetites that exist. The other Red Bull driver has only stood on the podium twice so far, while his teammate has already been to eleven times where champagne is drunk.
However, the 31-year-old claims that he used to be in this situation before, but he always managed to recover. Checo isn’t thinking about next season because he still has work to do this year. "I don't think about 2022 at all.
There is still a lot of work to be done this year. I’ve been in this situation before, and I’ve managed to recover. This time it will be the same. I have no doubt about that, "says Perez. "Every weekend can change things, so I'm looking forward to the last part of the season because we're also in the middle of a big fight for the constructors' championship against Mercedes," he added.
The Mexican driver assures that he knows how to change the situation and get better. He assures that he has improved his racing pace in the last few weekends - now that needs to be turned into results. "Doing the right things.
I’ve improved my pace over the past few weekends. Now I have to be sure that I will turn it into results, "explains Perez. Checo has ‘taken’ just 16 points in the last six races. Same as George Russell in weak Williams.
Fernando Alonso, for example, has won 20 points in the last three weekends. But Perez makes it clear he will return because he fully trusts his team, adding that there are still many races. "I was in this situation before and I managed to overcome it.
I am sure I can do that, because I fully believe in this team, and there are still many races left, "said Sergio Perez.
