Perez bored by Malaysia GP

NEWS STORY
03/04/2014

Sidelined by an electrical issue just before the race, Sergio Perez admits he found last weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix "boring".

"Malaysia for me was quite a boring race, with Mercedes dominating and actually nothing happening in the midfield," the Force India driver told reporters ahead of this weekend's Bahrain Grand prix. "I think it was a boring race. Here hopefully we can see good racing. Hopefully for the fans and for the good of Formula One we can have a good show here."

After a strong start to his season in Australia, the Mexican taking the final point scoring position in the wake of Daniel Ricciardo's disqualification, he was forced to watch the Sepang event from the sidelines after an electrical issue meant he was unable to start the race.

No such problems for teammate Nico Hulkenberg however, the German impressing in both races and giving the Silverstone-based outfit cause for optimism as the season develops.

"The first two weekends have been really unfortunate for me with too many issues," said Perez. "Hopefully now that the car has the pace - and Nico has shown it has good pace - we can have a clear weekend without the issues. He has had two very strong races and a lot of points, so I am quite behind. Basically this is my start of the season so hopefully we can have a great result.

"I think there is good potential on the car, every weekend we are learning a lot. Once we have no issues and problems we should be really competitive."

"Join the club!
Given that this year's F1 is in many ways more "interesting", and for numerous reasons, than in the last few years, Perez might like to consider the plight of we fans."
