PEREZ UPBEAT AHEAD OF ITALIAN GP
Monza: Sahara Force India drivers have successfully negated a
weak qualifying by delivering points on race day this Formula
1 season but it must get a strong grid position at the highspeed Monza Circuit for the Italian Grand Prix here this
weekend. Perez, who finished second on
podium in 2012 for Sauber at Monza, said he would “certainly try” to repeat that perform
ance. “I think it’s going to be a good
track for us. It’s important to qualify in the top ten to have a chance of scoring good points.
It’s difficult to overtake at Monza and if you are out of position it’s hard to recover,”
the Mexican said. Nico Hulkenberg said they will use a new rear wing for the Monza race, considering the low downforce nature of the
track. “It looks simple, but hooking up a quick lap is still a challenge and it’s easy to make mistakes. I expect us to be quite competitive there. It should be better for us than Spa. It’s all about power and top speed and we know the engine will be strong. We also have a new low downforce rear wing that we will use for Monza
only, he added.
