"Czech" Pérez: Too bad I didn’t finish second, I got close

The Mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull), second in the Formula One World Championship, who started ninth and advanced six places to finish third the Hungarian Grand Prixthe eleventh of the year, declared at the Hungaroring that it was a pity that second place narrowly escaped him, which he came close to, but that, “in general terms, it was an excellent result for the team”, for which his teammate, the Dutchman Max Verstappen, achieved a new victory.

“We were close to finishing second, but unfortunately we had to pass many lapped; and the track was full of chips when you went a bit off the line. That made me lose many seconds,” said ‘Checo’, born 33 years ago in Guadalajara (Jalisco) and who, together with ‘Mad Max’, clearly leads the Constructors’ World Championship for Red Bull.

The Austrian team broke this Sunday the all-time record for consecutive wins in McLaren Formula One, which in 1988 won the first eleven of that year. The ‘Checo’ team, which scored the first eleven, equaled the best start of a season; and broke the absolute record for consecutive wins by adding that of the last race last year, which Verstappen also won.

“I managed to come back, but a bit late,” explained the brave driver from Guadalajara -with six victories and now with 32 podiums in the premier class-, who is still second in the championship: now with 171 points, 110 behind his garage neighbor.

“The strategy has been very good once again. It has been an excellent result for the team. And days like this help me a lot, because I want to be on the podium every weekend,” declared ‘Checo’ this Sunday at the circuit on the outskirts of Budapest.

The race today was not only demanding physically, but also mentally; since I had to focus mainly on managing the tires”, commented the brave driver from Guadalajara this Sunday in Hungary. “It was very hot and in the end I lost three kilos”, he added.

“It has been a great result. Now I just need to be consistent”, stated ‘Checo’.
