Needs to go ‘flat out all the way’ at Italian GP – Sergio Perez


Force India speedy – Sergio Perez says that he needs to go “flat out all the way” at the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix.

Force India made an extensive upgraded in British Grand Prix, and introduced a B-Spec car. Both drivers’ made a point finish at Silverstone. But their reliability issues resulted an empty point finish in Hungarian GP

Perez’s self-confidence was increased at the Belgian Grand Prix, when he brought home his team’s best performance of the season by finishing fifth to bring in 10 points.

“Monza is a true power track and so we go there confident of being competitive. It’s never easy to overtake and the strategy options are quite limited, and so getting the job done in qualifying is especially important. In the race it’s a case of being flat out all the way and being accurate with your braking points,” Perez said.

“The race in Belgium was good fun: it’s always nice to battle at the front and, even though we didn’t manage to get onto the podium, it was good to come away with our best result of the season so far,” said the 25-year-old.

“Our performance is improving and we are taking the opportunities when they arise. We have seen that we can now fight with nearly everyone and it’s important we keep aiming for the podium.”

The Mexican said that, he has fond memories of Monza. In 2012, while driving for Sauber, he had finished second.

“Monza is a place with lots of memories for me. I had one of my best races in Formula 1 there in 2012, finishing second after a clever race managing tyres. The circuit is probably one of the most beautiful in the calendar: there’s history wherever you look and you can feel it’s a unique place from the very moment you arrive at the track,” Perez added.

“The Italian fans are amazing – they remind me of Mexicans, in a way, and it’s a good warm-up ahead of the race in Mexico City! My feeling with the updated car is very good now. Spa was the most comfortable I’ve b.een this season and it showed in the results. We need to go to Monza and deliver a similar performance.”
