Ferrari has revealed that it spoke with Sergio Pérez, a member of its Driver Academy, to find out why the Mexican seemingly went off the boil between the Chinese and Monaco Grands Prix. The Sauber driver responded to this in perfect fashion in Canada, where flawless tyre management saw him rise to a second F1 podium from 15th on the grid.
After finishing eighth in Melbourne and second at Sepang, the Montreal rostrum also marked the first points finish for Pérez since the Malaysian Grand Prix.
“After Monaco, we had a discussion with Sergio,” says Luca Baldisserri, head of the Ferrari Driver Academy. “We wanted to find out why recent results had not lived up to expectations after the Malaysian Grand Prix. Pérez is undoubtedly talented but he often lets himself down by being too aggressive which, especially in Formula 1, does not deliver results.
“Montreal was a great response; a race in which Sergio not only ran at a great pace but also managed his race very well, managing to stay on-track for 50 laps on the same set of tyres.”
Pérez now sits ninth in the Drivers’ Championship, just eight points behind McLaren’s Jenson Button and a comfortable 26 ahead of second Ferrari driver Felipe Massa.
