Force India is maintained as the alternative most powerful of the three great teams in the Grand Prix of Mexico, but on this occasion it was not the local Sergio Perez who shone in track, if not your mate Nico Hülkenberg. The German pilot returned to shine again in qualifying, displaying their best version both in Q2 and in Q3, where 1:19.330 left him in a great fifth position, ahead of the two Ferrari.
Hülkenberg, who thus gets his third top 5 in qualifying of the year after your first row in Austria, praised the performance of his car, he great his back, and does not propose an output conservative despite his recent incidents:
“Today, our car works well in virtually any circuit, but in qualifying it was becoming more and more quick. The evolution of the track helped, and maybe you’ve done a good job understanding the tires, and take them to the exact point. My first round was tremendous, perhaps my best qualifying lap of the year, you could not get anything more from it. In general, it has been a great qualifying for us, and I am very happy with the result”.
“you must Always be careful, but each output has a different dynamic. The last race was not great, but it should go well tomorrow. I will Not let what happened last week I influence“.
Perez voted to comeback after his mistake
The above-mentioned Sergio Perez failed to correspond to the large number of fans who watched the rating on the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, and a last brake on the Q2 destroyed their chance of reaching the final round, ranking in twelfth place with a 1:20.287.
The mexican driver regretted having erred with the initial strategy of tyres, and trusts their options on Sunday to hit
“We lost the Q3 today, it’s a shame, but I’m an optimist, and we can recover some positions in the race with a solid strategy. In Q2 we went out with the soft tyres to see if we could stay with them, but on my second attempted I rode the superblandos. Unfortunately, I made a small mistake on my last lap, blocked the tires and I went long on the first curve, and there ended my options. I apologize for the error, but I hope I can give something of joy to all my fans in the race. The good news is that we have made some progress with the car between the free and the rating. Our race pace looks competitive, and I think we can get a good result”.
