Mexico City- Due to the lack of rhythm and adaptability of the RB16B, Mexican Sergio Pérez used his experience to get eighth at the starting line of the Spanish Grand Prix.
On a complicated weekend, the guy from Guadalajara failed to improve his free practice time. He achieved the classification goal to position himself first.
In Q1, he chose 1’18” 203, in Q2 he improved to 1’17” 669, but not everything is optimistic in Q3.
When he was about to test his first lap, Checo turned and left the track, finishing tenth without time. In his second attempt, he could barely surpass Alpine’s Fernando Alonso and McLaren’s Lando Norris.
British Leonton Hamilton left 1’16” 741, which increased his 100th pole position and extended Mercedes’ dominance in Barcelona.
Red Bull’s Max Verstappen failed to beat the seven-time F1 champion and will finish second, while Finn Valtteri Bottas is in third place.
