Perez admits rain is the only way he can grab points in Monaco

Sergio Perez has admitted that he is looking for some help from the weather if he is to score points in Monaco for the first time since his podium in the principality in 2016.

The Mexican was knocked out in Q1 and will start 16th thanks to Antonio Giovinazzi’s three-place grid drop.

Monaco’s narrow streets offer little scope for overtaking, so Perez is hoping for some intervention from the skies to help him to the top ten.

After qualifying, Perez revealed: "Hopefully the rain can help us and we can score some points. I think otherwise tomorrow, it's going to be a great pain.

"In the last practice session we never seemed to be competitive enough unfortunately.

"There is a lot of work going on, so hopefully that can help us and we can get some points tomorrow. At the moment it's been a very frustrating weekend up to now.

"It's been quite challenging, very small margins - [if we had] two or three tenths to make it through and that would have changed the picture, unfortunately we were unable to get those tenths we needed today."
