It was a difficult weekend for Sergio Perez who failed to score points for the first time since Imola in March.
The Red Bull driver first had a below-par qualifying performance on Friday, losing out to Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.
But on Saturday, during the inaugural sprint qualifying, things got severely worse for Perez after spinning at Chapel – he would start Sunday’s race from the pitlane.
After going bold and completing his first stint on the hard tyres, the Mexican rather predictably picked off those ahead of him, working his way back into the points.
Yet with teammate Max Verstappen not scoring and rival Lewis Hamilton taking victory, Perez was sacrificed to take the fastest lap away from the Mercedes driver, pitting onto fresh soft tyres, completing four trips down the pitlane during the race and finishing 16th.
Perez believes that he could have taken some points away from Silverstone without the extra stops.
