Sergio Perez has reflected on a challenging Turkish Grand Prix race, where he finished 3rd.

Why it matters: The Mexican showed consistent pace throughout the day and got his first podium since the French GP.


  • Perez admits that the tire condition was the biggest concern during the race.

What he had to say:

  • “It was quite an intense race with fighting with Lewis and then Charles,” Perez told Sky Sports.
  • “We didn’t really know what was going on with the tires, it was just one of the races you know where you have to push at the right time. It was very hard to manage the tires because they were going off and off.”¬†
