Pérez eyes best possible result
2 June 2014 – Sergio Pérez is keen to get the best possible result he can in the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend.
Pérez went out on the opening lap in Monaco after contact with McLaren's Jenson Button and he now wants to put that behind him and score more points at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a track that should suit the Force India VJM07.
"After a very disappointing race in Monaco, I just want to get back in the car and get the best possible result for my team. Points will be the target," confirmed Pérez, who has notched up 20 so far this year, including taking that third place finish in Bahrain.
"I really enjoy racing in Canada; it's a very nice circuit which is quick and technical. It feels a little bit like a home race for me because it's not too far from Mexico and there are always quite a few Mexican fans at the race."
"I also have very good memories from Montreal," he added. "In 2012 I started at the back of the grid and managed to finish in third place. It was an amazing race and my one-stop strategy worked perfectly. It was my second podium in Formula 1 and a great feeling - one I hope to experience again soon."
"It's another track where you need good top speed and traction from the slow corners. You also have to maximise the limits of the track to be quick and get really close to the walls, so it's easy to make a mistake. It's hard to overtake there, but the final chicane is definitely the best opportunity."
"As a track, it should be suited to the strengths of our car so we have to maximise this opportunity," he concluded.
