Szafnauer says Perez’s to commit to the team for the long term shows his confidence in their plans for the future:
Sergio knows what our plans are and what we’re trying to do for the future. And for him to say ‘I want to be here for three years’ is a big deal. In years past it was always year by year by year. So that’s an indicator.
I think it’s great. He knows us as well, he knows the team, he knows what we’re trying to do and on a Sunday he’s a great driver.
He did a great job in Spa, very calculated overtaking manoeuvres, doesn’t take too many risks. In all the years I’ve been working with him he’s got a very cool head, knows what he’s doing. I think he’s only lost it once which was in Singapore when he went into one of the Williams, Sirotkin. But apart from that cool head, very good on a Sunday, great overtaking, defends well.
Rival Brazilian Stock Car teams surprised fans by swapping parts of their liveries in last weekend’s race at the Velopark. Ricardo Zonta and Julio Campos exchanged the bonnets on their cars to promote awareness of organ transplantation.
