Sergio Perez confessed that finishing fourth in Saudi Arabia was difficult after leading the race for Red Bull in the beginning phases.
Sergio Perez admits it was “difficult” to finish in the top four in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix after qualifying first and leading the first few circuits.
In the battle for the lead, Red Bull’s Sergio Perez surged ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc before Williams’ Nicholas Latifi wrecked at the worst possible time for the Mexican, who had just pitted.
Leclerc and Max Verstappen tried to take advantage of the Safety Car and were able to pull ahead when they pitted for fresh rubber.
“The margin that we were looking for [from the start], we got it, and things were looking pretty good,” explained Perez, talking to Sky Sports F1.
“Unfortunately, Latifi put it in the wall at the wrong time for me, but this is racing.”
Perez misses out on a chance to win the championship
After race two, Perez is seventh in the Drivers’ Championship, 13 points after teammate Verstappen.
Perez has confessed that he is expecting for some good fortune soon after a dependability issue in Bahrain and a string of bad luck in Jeddah.
“It will come around where it works for me, but it hurts,” he commented.
“We did everything we possibly could to win this race from pole.”
