Sergio Perez: Racing Point the best team outside the top three

Written by  Jan 11, 2019

Sergio Perez believes his seat at Racing Point is the best on the grid for a driver outside the top three teams.

The Mexican will be entering his sixth season with the Silverstone outfit, formerly known as Force India, and in that time he has built a reputation as one of the top midfield runners on the grid.

Last year was a little rocky, as financial problems led to a stint in administration which Perez himself initiated, but the team remains as close as it ever has and now has the potential for a bright future.

“I have been here for a lot more years than I thought it to be," Checo, who joined after his failed season at McLaren in 2013, told FormulaRapida.

“I am comfortable here, I am very optimistic. I think if you cannot be in a Ferrari or Mercedes, Racing Point is a great place to be and definitely, there’s a huge potential in this team.

“I have been the best of the rest for the last two years – was very close to be for the third year in a row – so there is a prospect to go forward.

“We will see how things go for next year, I am definitely very excited about the future of this team.

“I have been charting with very much the whole team from mechanics to engineers, catering and everyone is really excited.”

Racing Point, which will announce a permanent new name along with their 2019 car next month, even has the top three teams in their sights with the financial clout of new owner Lawrence Stroll.

“Lawrence is very enthusiastic about this project, he knows that it is a long-term project and I think we have great direction with the team bosses," Perez continued.

“Everything should be in place just to expand. Also, we have to be aware that it takes time.

“We have seen with other teams how much it took them but I think the team that can go to the next step is Racing Point.”
