Sergio Perez explained that the crash in qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix, which he will start from the last place, is the result of unresolved problems with the brakes that appeared already in the third free practice.
The Mexican lost 3 minutes of the final practice due to technical problems in FP20, which he finished more than half a second behind teammate Max Verstappen's time after two fast laps in which he had problems with locked wheels on braking.
After qualifying, he explained that they were confident they had fixed the problems. "I was just a passenger in the racing car when I started braking," he said. "I couldn't do anything but brake. For some reason, the braking ratio shifts to the front wheels. I just hope we can fix the problem before the race so I can minimize the damage.”
This is the second qualification in a row when one of the Red Bull racers has been stuck at the back of the starting line due to technical problems. Perez said it will be difficult to beat rivals if the team does not perform flawlessly in all qualifying and races, and expects a tough race in Melbourne on Sunday, despite the addition of a fourth DRS zone.
