Despite pushing the German hard for sixth place in the final stint he was unable to get by, but was nonetheless delighted to get his second points finish. “I think it was a good race and a very good result for the team. In the beginning the conditions were quite difficult, but we managed to stay out of trouble,” said Perez. “ The strategy was good and my pit stops were perfect.” He spent almost 20 laps tucked up behind Rosberg, regularly staying within 1 second and set a fastest lap that was four tenths quicker than the German. As had been expected prior to the weekend, the DRS overtaking zone on the Wellington straight failed to help Perez get by. “Unfortunately I couldn’t overtake Nico. I was very close but he was too fast on the straights,” continued Sergio. “Overall I am happy and now the difficult times are behind me. After the accident it took me time to get back into the rhythm of the season, and find the momentum I had before it. In two weeks’ time I shall be even stronger.” Perez scores first points since Monaco crash FuTuRe Red Bull star Daniel Ricciardo made his Formula one debut this weekend, and it provided three days of mixed results for the Australian rookie. Given that the young driver was losing his cherry with HRT, expectations of a debut podium were not exactly high. Speaking in his first F1 press conference on Thursday afternoon, Ricciardo said that for the race, his aim was “to try to finish and just get the miles under my belt and the experience at this level of my career. ... If I can try and be competitive compared to Tonio [Liuzzi] – he is very experienced – and I am sure I can learn something from him so we will see how I go.” Initial results were promising. In FP1, Ricciardo’s first time behind the wheel of the HRT, he was 1.2s slower than his teammate. But on Friday afternoon, the young Australian was 0.2s ahead of the more experienced Italian. Saturday afternoon saw Ricciardo ahead in the team-mate wars once more, this time with 0.3s on Liuzzi. But it was a different matter entirely during Sunday’s race. Ricciardo managed to finish unscathed, but suffered the indignity of being lapped by Liuzzi, who was driving an identical car. Speaking to the media on Thursday, Ricciardo admitted that he had never run in an F1-length race, and said that it might take him some time to acclimatize to the physical and mental demands of an F1 Sunday.
