GP Week : Issue 166
31 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> MONZA 31 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: Carlos Slim Jr. Sauber’s Sergio Perez proved his class yet again to net his third podium finish and second second- place finish of the season after a superb drive from 12th on the grid. The Mexican perfectly executed his one-stop strategy to climb from seventh to second in his final stint, taking full advantage of the medium tyres as those ahead of him struggled on the hards. “This was a very enjoyable race for me. It was one of those where you have the pace and are the one to attack,” began Sergio. “I am very happy for the team which is working very hard. It is a really good team, I am proud of it.” He said it was a risk to start on the hard tyre and complete more than half the race on them, but the fears proved to be unfounded and he easily completed the stint before switching to the mediums for the final run to the flag. “I didn’t have an easy first stint with the hard tyres but it was certainly the right strategy,” he continued. “I was frequently in contact with the team on the radio because I was worried the tyres would suddenly drop and we would have to change our strategy. Also we were not quite sure how quickly they would warm up. However, it worked out fine, I could stay out as long as I needed to for our strategy.” Team-mate Kobayashi could only manage ninth place, having been forced to start on the soft due to qualifying inside the top ten, but his and Perez’s results have helped Sauber to climb to just 26 points behind Mercedes in the constructors’ championship.
