Perez reports in sick ahead of Austrian GP

Red Bull had to cancel Sergio Perez’s media commitments at the Austrian Grand Prix on Thursday due to the Mexican driver falling ill. The team stated that Perez became unwell the previous night and needed the day to rest and recover in order to be in optimal health for the upcoming race.

Despite being Max Verstappen’s closest competitor for the championship title, Perez is currently trailing behind by a significant 69 points. This emphasizes the importance of a strong performance from Perez at Spielberg, especially considering his recent struggles. In the past three races, he has failed to qualify in the top 10 or secure a podium finish.

It is worth noting that this weekend’s race is the second sprint event of the season. Perez had previously won the first sprint event in Azerbaijan back in April, which ultimately led to his victory in the Sunday grand prix as well. However, since then, his performance has been less impressive, with only one podium finish compared to Verstappen’s four consecutive wins.

The schedule for the weekend includes a single practice session and qualifying on Friday, followed by a standalone sprint day on Saturday. This sets the stage for the main race on Sunday.

In conclusion, Sergio Perez’s absence from media commitments at the Austrian Grand Prix is due to his illness. With his position in the championship standings and recent struggles, it is crucial for him to perform well in order to close the gap with Max Verstappen. The upcoming sprint event provides an opportunity for Perez to regain his momentum and challenge his teammate.
