Sergio Perez: “The race in Mexico is a hugely important weekend for me

Sergio Perez has highlighted just how important this weekend is for him in Mexico as he looks to build on his ninth-place finish in Japan. The Mexican is chasing a top ten finish in the drivers' standings going into the final four races of the season.

Perez failed to finish in Mexico last season so will be looking to make amends for last season's disappointment this weekend.

The race in Mexico is a hugely important weekend for me. It’s my home race and I always feel very proud to see Formula 1 back in Mexico, Perez said in Racing Point's race preview.

"We’ve just had the notice that the race contract has been extended for another three years, which is great news for the sport and for Mexico.

"Everybody tells me how much they love the race – my colleagues, the media and the fans. It’s our chance to show everybody the Mexican way of life and how much we love sports."

Racing point head into the weekend 7th in the constructors' championship on 54 points, just five below Toro Rosso.
