Sergio Pérez laments: "I had everything to fight for the podium"

Sergio Pérez started the 2022 F1 Canadian Grand Prix race from 13th position this Sunday at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, after his crash in qualifying on Saturday.

Before reaching the tenth lap, the Mexican driver managed to climb back to 11th place, but a mechanical problem in his Red Bull RB18 forced him to retire on the ninth lap of the race, in what was a weekend to forget .

This meant the second retirement of the Mexican driver in the season after the one he suffered in the opening round at the Bahrain GP and, in turn, the first retirement of a Red Bull driver since Max Verstappen failed to cross the checkered flag at the Australian GP, the third race of the year, due to another reliability problem.

“It’s a shame. Everything went wrong for us this weekend. Reliability problems continue to harm us a lot and leaving here with a zero hurts”, were the first words of Pérez after his retirement at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

Referring to the moment his car broke down, the Mexican said: “I lost a gear, I was in neutral and I couldn’t do anything anymore.”

Although he was out of the points zone at the time of retirement, the driver from Guadalajara believes that the podium was a real possibility this Sunday at the 2022 Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix.

“I had a good strategy, I was advancing positions and I think I had everything to fight for the podium,” assured the Mexican.

Checo arrived at the Montreal event in second place in the championship and, despite abandoning it, he maintains it, but at the cost of losing ground against Verstappen , who continues to lead the world championship with an iron hand.
