Sergio Perez: “I am proud of what we achieved together this season”

Sergio Perez feels the disappointing result he achieved in Brazil should not take anything away from the incredible season his Sahara Force India team have had after team-mate Nico Hulkenberg’s sixth place secured fifth place in the constructors’ championship.

The Mexican could only finish down in thirteenth on Sunday, although this became twelfth after the disqualification of Felipe Massa, but admitted his pride of being part of a great season for the team.

“It hasn’t been the best of weekends for me,” reflected Perez afterwards. “I have struggled to feel comfortable with the car from the start and I feel I didn’t go in the right direction with the set-up yesterday.

“Today was more or less the same so we will need to go back and analyse all the data from the weekend to address the issues before we arrive in Abu Dhabi.

“Today’s result, however, should take nothing away from what has been a great championship so far. The team has now finished fifth, so there are a lot of positives to celebrate.

“I am proud of what we achieved together this season and I am looking forward to aiming even higher in the future.”
