Sergio Pérez, second at the start of free practice at the Japanese GP

The Mexican Sergio Czech Pérez showed himself comfortably in the first tests of the Formula One Japan Prize by finishing in second place, behind his Red Bull teammate, the Dutchman Máx Verstappen on the Suzuka track, one of the most complicated of the competition. .

Verstappen demonstrated his status as three-time world champion by leading the entire competition on this occasion and stopped the clock at 1.30.056 hours, while Pérez barely finished with a time of 1.30.237.

The Spanish Carlos Sainz, Ferrari driver and winner of the previous race at the Australian Grand Prix, closed in third place with a time of 1.30.269, after a competition where he chased the Red Bull riders.

The positive result is an incentive for the Red Bull drivers, after being left off the podium in Australia where Verstappen abandoned the competition due to a mechanical failure and Pérez stayed on fifth place.

The Suzuka track is characterized by being one of the fastest and most risky because of the curves as well as the ascents and descents of the route. On this occasion, free practice also registered a red flag due to an accident.

American Logan Sargeant, William’s driver, lost control at the exit of a curve and ended up hitting the circuit barriers. Despite the mishap, the runner was able to get out of his car on his own feet.

The second practice would take place during the early hours of this Friday (Mexico time), where dominance by the Red Bull team was also expected.
