Sergio Perez admits that he needs to catch up with Max Verstappen after a difficult start to the weekend in Canada.

While Verstappen was the quickest driver in both Friday practice sessions in Montreal, his teammate Perez struggled as he was 4th in FP1 and 11th in FP2. The Mexican admitted that set-up caused issues.

“We had an issue with the set-up, but luckily we managed to find it out, part of it. So I think the long run, it was a bit more representative but still we had an issue there so hopefully we are able to sort out everything. Unfortunately not much we could do in the session today,” Perez said.

“I’m a bit on the back foot today, but hopefully tonight, we are able to make the right compromises… definitely [Max looks] strong out there so hopefully we are able to be competitive.”
