“I didn’t understand the strategy either. I had to come back from last place! We rescued a point for the championship. In a week we will be back fighting again and with great enthusiasm,” he said.
“I had no rhythm in the first lap. Those with new tires were very strong. At the start I tried to stay outside, I climbed into the laundry room and lost my position with Stroll. I lost two positions and in the end we were left out with the safety car and a lot to analyze with the strategy. Today we had no rhythm to be more competitive, “he said this Sunday at the end of his career.
Czech Pérez, who suffered with the strategy of Racing Point, which sent him to the pits, so the Mexican had problems coming back to 10th place, emphasizing that they will think about the strategy that kept him from finishing higher on the board.

The safety car arrived and we decided to stay out, well, I think that affected us a bit, probably, but we have to analyze the strategy, we did not have the pace we expected yesterday and today ”.
Now, Pérez he focuses on Monza and wants to reverse what happened in Belgium to give the team better results.
“Yes, (Monza) is similar here. With the downforce, we are not doing as we expected. I think so, in time he penalized, but my teammate, with that new strategy, finished half a second ahead of me. I think the low-load package is not as competitive as we thought, “he concluded.
