GP Week : Issue 209
After playing second-fiddle to Nico Hulkenberg earlier in the season, sergio Perez continued his renaissance with a spirited drive to seventh: "The race was a lot of fun. We were always fighting somebody and always pushing hard. It was great racing and it's good to score important points for the championship. “The most important part of the race was the fight I had with Jenson, which was really nice and reminded me of the old days. I know he is a driver that you can fight really hard and it's always clean. “At the end of the race with Kevin, I knew he had a penalty and there was no need to attack him. It meant I could focus on keeping Jenson behind me, which was not easy ...” In Nico Hulkenberg’s case, 12th was an alternate strategy gone wrong. Electing to run the Hards from the star t, he pitted earlier than planned with a lot of rear- end slide. The Mediums, however, didn’t really help as a cure and his challenge wilted: "It wasn't a very busy race for me. I was racing alone most of the time and just doing my own race: not being towed around or benefiting from DRS made it a bit harder. “I had a very good start, especially considering I was on the Hard tyre, but I lost contact with the cars ahead of me quite soon because they were on the Medium and I didn't really have the same pace. “It was quite difficult to manage the car, especially the rear end: I had some oversteering and it was tricky to drive. I pitted quite early as I wasn't going anywhere on my Hard tyres and we saw a good opportunity to jump people, but we s till found it difficult to deal with the balance.” Sergio on fire 33 GPWEEK.com // 33 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> ITALY PARTNERS:
