Pérez certain further strong results to come
30 June 2014 – Force India driver Sergio Pérez says he is certain that the second half of the 2014 Formula 1 season will yield further sizeable points hauls for himself and the team.
The Mexican battled through the field to finish sixth at the recent Austrian Grand Prix, marking his fourth top 10 result in six races, while team-mate Nico Hülkenberg has scored at every race so far.
Given the VJM07's consistency, Pérez reckons there is much more to come as the campaign moves on.
"In the last few events I've done really well, apart from Monaco, where we didn't have the opportunity," he said.
"We're getting there, but it's just unfortunate that we've been unlucky. In Montreal, for example, we were close to winning the race [before a clash with Williams rival Felipe Massa].
"I'm sure we can get some good results in the second half of the season."
Pérez hopes he can give the team something to celebrate during its home event at Silverstone.
"We have been performing solidly on every track so far and I see no reason we can't put in a similar performance this weekend," he said.
"It's also the team's local race so this adds an extra motivation for us to do well."
