“Max one on the inside and I on the outside, the one in the middle always has less room for maneuver… I really wanted to win the race and I saw the opportunity and jumped in… It hurts me a lot, today we had a good opportunity , but I tried, because if I came out of that corner first it would have been the opportunity to win the race, but it wasn’t like that, I had contact with Charles, unfortunate… I would try again because a podium today was no longer enough , because the only thing I dream of is winning at home. The team tried to solve the problems, but we saw that we lost so much time and the damage to the car, there was nothing we could do and we decided to retire,” he declared. ‘Checo’ Pérez for Fox Sports.
