Sahara Force India Formula One Team driver Sergio Pérez has described his experiences at the German Grand Prix as a “crazy afternoon”.

The Mexican finished the race in seventh, just ahead of his team-mate, Frenchman Esteban Ocon.

Pérez said, “When you come away from such a crazy afternoon with such good points you have to be happy.

The whole race was very busy and I was always in the middle of the pack fighting all the cars around me.”

He ran the first 22 laps of the race on the ultrasoft tyre, and then switched on to a new set of softs for the remaining 45 laps.

He added: “I had a mega first stint, but we were unlucky with the slow pit stop, which cost us a few seconds.

Then, when the rain arrived, it was very tricky and each lap was a new adventure.”

The team see their seventh and eighth finish as a positive result.

“To survive all these things and finish seventh is a good achievement.”, said Pérez.

It’s just a shame we lost a position to Grosjean on the final lap, but we did all we could today.”
