Pérez hopes to beat Verstappen

Pérez hopes to beat Verstappen

Where Sergio Pérez pulled the longest end in Monaco last year and triumphed twice on a street circuit earlier this year, the ‘King of the Streets’ was just as hard to find last weekend. In qualifying he put all his RB19 against the wall in Q1 and then there was nothing left to do in the race but drive around in the rear. The end result of the weekend: teammate Max Verstappen is 25 points ahead of him and Fernando Alonso is now close behind him in the championship with only 12 points behind. A clearly disappointed Pérez appeared before the assembled press after the race in Monaco, where he put his hand in his own bosom. “I know that my mistake in qualifying was very costly and it now costs 25 points, so I am very disappointed,” said the Mexican, who was clearly aiming for his second victory in Monaco. He remains cautiously optimistic about his chances of surpassing teammate Max Verstappen in the championship, albeit with a dose of realism: “I still have some hope, although I know I can’t make a mistake like that anymore. I can afford in the championship. I hope that in Barcelona I will be back to my normal level.”
