Break helped me recharge my batteries: Perez

Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium), Aug 18 (IANS) Force India driver Sergio Perez on Tuesday said the break between the Hungarian Grand Prix in July and Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday helped him recharge his batteries, adding that he is looking forward to the Formula 1 race.

“The break was a good opportunity to recharge my batteries and spend some time at home with my family. The calendar is pretty busy and we don’t often get the chance to have some time for ourselves. However, I am really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel and doing what I really love,” said the Mexican.

Speaking about the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps, where the race will be held, the 25-year-old said, “Spa is an amazing track and I enjoy racing there. The first sector and the run through Eau Rouge feels very special in a Formula 1 car and it’s definitely a highlight of the year.

“The track can also produce really good racing because there are a few corners where you have a good chance to overtake. The characteristics of the track and its emphasis on power and top speed should suit our car. You also have to expect wet weather at some point during the weekend so it could be quite unpredictable. We have shown some good pace in the last few races and we should be in a position to get a good result.”
