Lto sprint race Austrian Grand Prix could have been better for the Mexican Red Bull driver, Sergio ‘Checo’ Prez. Initially, Checo would start from fourth position, but a penalty, which came after qualifying, forced him to start from 13th position. In that sense and after climbing eight positions, the man from Jalisco expressed about this problem.

“It was outside the track limits, but I paid the result of a system that is not ready. i think i should be penalized before Q3 and not in Q3 because I lose all my tires, damage the engine, etc. In the end the system is not ready for this kind of rulesbut today it was Amy’s turn and that’s it”.

As we mentioned, this sanction had Checo start the sprint race from 13th placewhere he began to climb positions until finishing in fifth place.

“We were able to recover, we were able to get to the end, then I had the break limit issue then There wasn’t much to risk anymore, I wasn’t going to get to (George) Russell anyway. A fifth place that is important for us because from there we can fight tomorrow”.

Lastly, I confirmed that since the third row exit will be able to fight for a place in the top three.

“Definitely, a good start tomorrow and we can be in the fight (for the podium) from lap one.”
