Sergio Perez believes that qualifying is the key to another good result at next weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone, as the Mexican targets his third podium of the season.
“I think our car will be good in Silverstone and I want to fight for another podium there,” he said. “In my view in Silverstone it is even more difficult to overtake than it was in Valencia, therefore qualifying is high priority on the job list. I need a better grid position than recently.”
Perez scored podiums in Canada and Malaysia
Perez has failed to reach Q3 in the last three races despite finishing an impressive third during the Canadian Grand Prix. The Sauber driver, who used to live in UK, hopes for a strong result in a race that is close to his heart.
“The race in Silverstone is a special Grand Prix for the fans, the atmosphere and also for me personally. I lived in Oxford for three years and I have quite a few friends in England.”
