Sergio Perez believes he can challenge for a podium finish in tomorrow’s race, which he will start from the second row of the grid.
Perez qualified fifth but will move up one place when Romain Grosjean takes a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change.
“It’s been a really good day and I am very satisfied with my lap in Q3,” he said. “We were able to improve the car balance from yesterday and this gave me a whole lot of confidence – probably the most I have had this season.”
“The car was much more predictable and this allowed me to push more in every corner. I showed very good pace in each of the three qualifying sessions and I am really looking forward to the race tomorrow.”
“I see no reason why we cannot fight for the podium. The performance today also gives me a lot of optimism for the remainder of the season.”
