Perez dissatisfied with his car, seems less likely to make cut for Q3

Shanghai (China), Apr 12 (efe-epa).- Mexican Formula One driver Sergio 'Checo' Perez (Racing Point) on Friday acknowledged that, with his car's current condition, it appeared that he was not likely to make it to Q3, which is reserved for the best 10 drivers in the qualification rounds.

In the second free practice session held in Shanghai, China, ahead of the 2019 Chinese Grand Prix, Perez held the 14th position, clocking in a time of one minute and 34.784 seconds – one and a half second behind first-placed Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) of Finland.

The 29-year-old Perez told reporters that he would be delighted if he could make the cut for the Q3 on Saturday, but this seemed to be impossible as he had to pick up the pace.

Perez added that his team started well in the first free practice session, then they made some changes in the second session that, apparently, did not work and left him behind.

The Mexican driver finished 13th in 2019 Australian GP in Melbourne, Australia and in Bahrain, he managed to end the race in the 10th spot.

Perez stressed that he and his team have a lot of work to do to know exactly where they are standing and to learn what they can do to improve for Saturday's sessions.

Perez is competing in his ninth season in F1 and the sixth with his current team, Racing Point, previously known as Force India.

The Chinese GP is set to take place on Sunday at the Shanghai International Circuit.

Bottas occupies the 14th position in the 2019 driver standings, ahead of his teammate and five-time world champion, including the last two editions, Lewis Hamilton.

Meanwhile, Checo is also placed in the 14th position in the standings, while his teammate Lance Stroll, who finished 0.005 seconds before Perez, is placed 11th in the standings.

The free practice the of China GP, which will be the 1000th race in the history of F1, will be completed this Saturday, hours before the qualification, which will determine the order of the start of Sunday's race, the third of 21-race F1 season.

The current version of the Chinese GP began in the 1990s and by 2004 China officially held the first ever Grand Prix.EFE
