Sergio Perez: It will be interesting to see how we go in the coming races

Racing Point had a great race at the Belgian Grand Prix with Sergio Perez finishing 6th and Lance Stroll coming in 10th. This double points finish is exactly what the team needed to build some momentum after the summer break. Perez reflected on what was a great race. 

"It's obviously very sad for our family, our community. I don't think any of us have really enjoyed being here but all we can do is give this race to Anthoine. It's no less than he, his family and his friends deserve," Perez said. 

"It was a good result for the team - especially considering the issues we had on Friday. It was a hard race, from the beginning to the end, but we came away with a good amount of points and some positive momentum to take into the next few races.

"There was a bit of chaos at the start, which I had to avoid by running wide, which lost me two or three places. From there we were fighting all the way through to make it back. I went into attack mode with lots of overtaking and P5 looked possible - but at the end, Albon was very strong and we had no chance to keep him behind.

"Our strategy was quite aggressive, so we paid the price at the end of the race. It always hurts to lose a position on the final lap, but we did all we could. Overall a positive performance for us. Spa is a place where we generally go well, so it will be interesting to see how we go at the coming races."

Racing Point will hope that this result is the start of many more points finishes this season.
