Before the Grand Prix of Bahrain and Sakhir, which will be held on different versions of the track, Sergio Perez spoke about his expectations …
Q: What can you say about the “outside” version of the track, which will host the race next week?
Sergio Perez: Obviously, we still have to get to know her. Even with the most effective preparation, there are always questions. The diagram looks very interesting. It looks like an exciting race awaits us. Traffic during qualifiers will be a problem – this factor could play a role on Saturday.
Q: In 2014, you took the podium in Bahrain …
Sergio Perez: Yes, it was a special moment in my career. It’s amazing that this happened in my third race for the team. And since that day, we have won five more podiums.
Question: Two weeks ago in Turkey you finished second in Turkey, is there a feeling that the team is on the rise again?
Sergio Perez: Yes, the team has a great atmosphere now. After the race in Turkey, I climbed to fourth place in the individual standings and I want to keep it. This is my goal for the stages in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. We want to compete for the podium and finish the season with good results.
