Writing sports, 2 abr. The Mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull), second in the Formula One World Championship, who this Sunday starred in the comeback of the day by finishing fifth -after having started from the ‘pit lane’- the crazy Australian Grand Prix, declared in Melbourne that he is happy with that position and “with the fastest lap” in the race at the semi-urban circuit of Albert Park.
“In general terms, it has been a good result”, commented ‘Checo’, born 33 years ago in Guadalajara (Jalisco), with five victories in Formula One, a category in which he has 28 podiums.
“Yesterday (referring to Saturday, when he was eliminated in the first round of qualifying) I lost some confidence in the car, but we made a number of changes overnight which benefited us for the race, in which I had a good re-start in the first one”, said the Mexican this Sunday in Australia.
“I advanced three or four places, but then it was a bit confusing, with the DRS train; something that caused me some frustration,” said ‘Checo’, winner two Sundays ago in Saudi Arabia and who is second in the World Cup, fifteen behind points out of the 69 with which his teammate leads, the Dutchman Max Verstappen, winner this Sunday.
“If I had been a bit more aggressive before, I could have finished in a better position, but I’m happy with my fifth place and the fastest lap in the race,” he said.
“In general terms, this race restores our confidence with a view to Baku,” said ‘Checo’ in reference to the next race, in the capital of Azerbaijan, where two years ago he celebrated the second of his five F1 victories: the first of four he has been with Red Bull. EFE
