Force Indian ace Sergio Perez is under investigation for failing to slow for double yellow flags condition during the qualifying Q2 for the Singapore Grand Prix.
Perez’s lap demoting Williams’ duo Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa, they managed only 11th and 12th for tomorrow’s race grid.
After the end of the session – the Mexican finished 10th – the Force India driver was called to the stewards as he is alleged to have failed to slow at Turn 9 and Turn 10.
“It was a very tricky session with everything,” Perez told media after qualifying session. “I had three yellow flags on my lap so I was lifting a lot; I lost around six-tenths with yellow flags.”
“And at the end with Esteban he was just very slow so I just managed to keep the line and he obviously was on a very slow lap so he opened up the racing line. Obviously on that certain occasion I lost four-tenths because I had to lift. So I think we have all the data that backs me up so there’s no issue at all.”
“At the end of the day you have the telemetry that the stewards will check and I have no problem.” The Mexican added.
