LAfter a very good weekend for all of Red Bull at the Belgian Grand Prix, the Mexican driver Sergio ‘Checo’ Prez couldn’t keep up the momentum after the summer break and let go of vital points in the Netherlands.

The Mexican could never feel comfortable since Friday on the Zandvoort track and he was never able to get in the first places during the free practices.

Already for Saturday’s qualifying, it seemed that Checo could start from the second row but a mistake on the last lap cost him a spin and for that reason I started fifth this Sunday.

It was a very long race and with more protagonists than we are used to because Mercedes entered the fight for the top positions after a campaign in which they did not start well.

In the end, Checo came sixth on the track and a penalty for Carlos Sainz helped him finish in fifth place and not lose second place in the championship, where he is equal in units with Charles Leclerc.
