Red Bull’s Sergio Perez said the Bahrain GP was a “very low day” for the team as both cars retired from the race due to mechanical issues.

The Mexican was forced to retire with one lap to go to the end of the race. His teammate, Max Verstappen, had retired 4 laps earlier.

Perez said it’s not good to start the season in the way it did, but nonetheless is positive that the car is quick.

“It’s very frustrating,” said Perez. “It’s a very low day for our team.

“It’s a difficult start to the new year, but the positive is that we are quick – we just have to figure it out, make sure we are more reliable and understand from the issues. We’ve got some pace to find to get closer to the Ferrari.”
