The news of the day is, undoubtedly, the decision of four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel to retire from Fromula One at the end of the 2022 season.

“I’m very proud of him, Seb is one of the greatest of the sport, we will miss him,” said Sergio Perez when asked his opinion on the announcement.

“But now he is on social media, so we won’t miss him that much,” he added jokingly, referring to Vettel creating his official Instagram account to announce his decision.

Then, talking about the upcoming Hungarian Grand Prix, the Mexican, who finished fourth behind both Mercedes at Paul Ricard and hasn’t won since Round 7 in Monaco, said he was hoping to get back on top of the car this weekend in Hungary with some set-up tweaks ahead of a “crucial” string of races that continues past the summer shutdown.

It still is a very long season. I [don’t come] from such a good race but still finished fourth, good points. What has been killing me lately has been the DNFs; it has been very costly in the championship,” he said.

“We’re going to be trying a few things this weekend, so hopefully [we can] get on top of everything. I’ve been more at home with the car, let’s put it that way, than in recent weekends, but there is nothing that really stands out. I think we should be able to sort it out quickly and get back on the form we’ve been in the whole season, basically.”

He added: I think these next four races, four weekends are very crucial in the championship.”

Perez enters Hungary just seven points behind Leclerc – but 70 behind his team mate Verstappen as Red Bull enjoy an 82-point lead in the constructors’ championship.
