Perez ‘tried to keep it nailed’ in FP2 crash
Sergio Perez explains that he was trying to maintain his speed while exiting Parabolica at the Italian Grand Prix when he lost control and crashed into the gravel. He slid sideways and hit the barrier, damaging his rear wing. Despite the incident, he believes the damage is minimal and is confident in the performance of the car for the rest of the weekend. He believes that the positive steps taken on Friday’s practice sessions have set him up well for the upcoming races. Meanwhile, teammate Max Verstappen also had some challenges during the second practice session, with traffic interruptions and the need to fine-tune his setup. However, he is still confident that they will make improvements and perform well.
