Sergio Perez comes from two consecutive zeros. Three, if we consider the spin of the Sprint Qualifying at Silverstone, which among other things put the whole British weekend uphill. In Red Bull they are missing his points, and to say that in some races it was a strategically decisive factor (like in Baku, where Max Verstappen would have won without the outbreak of the rear left, or in France). We therefore need a quick redemption, otherwise Mercedes risks running away in the constructors’ standings well beyond the current 12-point advantage.
“It was a good time to recharge, get some fresh air, and have two weeks in the same place, without travel, it’s always nice! I was able to completely detach from F1, which is important both mentally and physically. Now I’m back, fully charged. It will be a very intense second part of the season. It’s crazy to think that the season will be over in four months. The withdrawal of Hungary increased my hunger, not only for Spa but, in general, for the second half of the season. I feel more and more comfortable with the car, we are making the right steps and I think we will have a great end to the season. Spa with these machines is a lot of fun to drive. The weather can be capricious – the circuit is so long that it can be dry in parts and wet in others, which makes for difficult conditions“, These are the words of the Mexican to the team’s channels.
A word for too Honda, who is in his 50th race with Red Bull: “It brings enthusiasm, you can see their passion for this sport and it’s great to have people with this kind of energy around. I enjoyed working with them and it has been a great experience so far, I hope we can pay them back by winning the World Cup this year before they leave Formula 1“.
