Dutchman Max Verstappen won pole position on Saturday

“Being fourth is not a bad result, but I would have liked to be inside the top three on the grid to try to find first place in turn one,” explained the Mexican, fourth in the standings with a time of 1:18.128 .

The one born in Guadalajara 32 years ago revealed that he drove a large part of the race “blind” due to an electrical problem in his car.

“A pity, we could have fought for pole position. I had an electrical problem in the session. When they turned on the car there was no telemetry, we had to change an electrical box, they didn’t know where it was”, lamented the only national to get on the podium in the local Grand Prix when last year he was third.

Pérez was positive for this Sunday’s race, in which his Red Bull teammate, the Dutchman Max Verstappen, will start first.

“There is a long way to go, we are going to try tomorrow to have a good race,” he said.
