Perez: Tyre saving call behind Verstappen pace deficit in F1 Dutch GP
P1racenews AI automatic summary:

During the Dutch Grand Prix, a rain shower occurred on the opening lap, prompting Sergio Perez to pit early and switch from soft to intermediate tires. This decision gave him a significant advantage over his rivals. However, Max Verstappen, the eventual race winner, closed the gap and overtook Perez after a pit stop on lap 11. Perez believes that the difference in pace between him and Verstappen was due to the need to save his intermediate tires on the drying track. He thinks that if the anticipated rain had arrived, he could have held onto the lead for longer. Unfortunately, Perez spun out of second place when heavy rain hit towards the end of the race, dropping him to fourth after incurring a penalty for pitlane speeding. He expressed disappointment that they lost the podium but acknowledged that the team’s strategy was based on more information and will be reviewed.
