Checo Pérez did not want to take risks that were not worth it

This Saturday the Sprint race of the Brazilian Grand Prix was held where the starting grid for this Sunday was defined, right there the Finn Valtteri Bottas stayed with the pole, followed by Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz, in the fourth position appeared the Mexican Sergio “Checo” Pérez who had some doubts during the race because he has revealed that he could do much more to stay with the third position with which he started but which was to risk much more. The Mexican after finishing the race spoke to the media and stressed that he leaves a little doubtful since at times in the race there were opportunities that on paper could have sounded good but taking them to practice would not have been good options so they decided not to risk everything for something that maybe could go wrong, “We should not take unnecessary risks for today”, were the words of Checo Pérez who this Sunday in the first attempt will want to get once again among the best 3.But that was not all since as happened yesterday in practice and in qualifying, the issue of the track and not warming up the tires earned a bad start to both Checo and Verstappen and the Mexican himself He confessed since that he affirmed that both lost the position they had at the start, his partner as leader and he as third, the worst thing is that they no longer recovered the places and had to do their best to avoid falling more, during the following laps everything improved.

That is why he declared that he did not like it very much, he assured that he would wait until today to know if it would suit him and it was a 50-50 since he lost the position but remains within podium possibilities. The Brazilian Grand Prix race will be at 11:00 am (Central Mexico) and can be seen live on Fox Sports, this is one of the last races of the 2021 Formula 1 season and is getting more and more closed to the point that everything could be defined in the last race.
