The 2022 Canadian Grand Prix will not be a fond memory for Sergio in the future Czech Perez, who did not get anything all weekend and suffered with the engine of his vehicle. The Mexican retired on the ninth lap of Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and was unable to score points for either himself or Red Bull Racing.
The moment in which the driver from Guadalajara left yesterday’s classification was repeated with much anticipation in the main race, in which a promising start was seen for the Latin American driver. And once he spoke to the press, Czech Perez could not hide his discomfort and expressed his discomfort.
“A pity, everything went wrong for us this weekend and especially today, on Sunday, leaving at zero hurts. The problems continue to harm us a lot. It hurts a lot”, explained without many laps the Mexican, who spoke with the transmission of “ESPN” after taking time out of the race by order of the team, but what happened to him? The broker explained the reason that led him to make this decision.
“Yes, I lost drive and I was totally neutral, I didn’t advance at all. It was a shame to miss this day, everything was going very well and we had a very good strategy. I had been advancing places, I think we had everything to be able to recover and fight for the podium”, lamented Czech Perezwho will not be able to stretch the lead in the drivers’ standings or give Red Bull units for the constructors’ championship.
The Guadalajara I had faith intact on a dry track, I felt I had everything to achieve a great comeback and try to fight for the podium, but in the end the misfortune of the Qualy was repeated. The rain forced him to start from 13th position, although with different weather it was his RB18 that did not allow him to finish the competition.
Second retirement of the season
For Red Bull Racing and Czech Perez, in addition to Max Verstappen, the Bahrain Grand Prix, with which the season began, was also forgotten, since on that occasion the two pilots left. It seemed difficult, given what happened in recent races, for this to happen to the Mexican, but it finally happened.
After getting the podium four times, with the remembered victory in the Monaco Grand Prix, in addition to two fourth places, he is once again without adding units. Now, all the batteries must go to the British GP, where precisely today’s performance in Canada had taken place the previous season at Silverstone.
