Sergio Perez stated that the outcome of the Austrian Grand Prix was “very disappointing” for him.

Perez’s chances for a good result at the Red Bull Ring disappeared after the opening lap. The Mexican got spun and went into the gravel at turn 4 following a collision with George Russell.

Perez was a lap down at one point and retired from the race later on. The Red Bull Racing driver was not happy with Russell’s actions during the lap 1 episode.

“I was clearly ahead. It was up to George to really control his car which he clearly couldn’t and we ended up making contact,” Perez said.

“There was nothing else I could have done. I gave him enough room. I was already very close to the gravel to make sure he had enough room and for both of us to make the corner.

“For the standards of George, the level, I’m very surprised at that maneuver.

“It’s very disappointing for me. A very disappointing result for our team because clearly today there was a lot of opportunities. We had too much damage to progress in the race.”
