Sergio Perez will start tomorrow´s Abu Dhabi GP from the second place alongside teammate Max Verstappen. After last weekend heated reactions, the tide seems calmer in Red Bull who will try to secure Perez´s second place in the championship against Ferrari´s Charles Leclerc who will start third.

Perez seems confident with the result although he couldn´t secure the pole position and praised Verstappen´s job.

“It’s a good starting place. I think we didn't make that that final step in Q3. Especially Q3 run one wasn't that good. So, we were a bit behind but it's good to lock out that front row for tomorrow. Max did a great job also for me, you know, we worked together as a team really strongly on that final run. So yeah, looking forward to tomorrow, which is the day that really matters.”

Adding the tow from Max helped to improve his lap time in the second run.

“It certainly did. I think we worked really well as a team today. And I could feel, especially Sector 2, it was working. What you gain, you lose a bit in Sector 3, but generally, I think certainly it was a positive thing.”

Perez who scored his first top three in Abu Dhabi went into details about the session during the press conference.

“It was a good session. It was looking better after Q2, then Q3, it didn't start that well, especially run one, wasn’t ideal.  Then the second run was quite a lot better. Not enough for pole, though. So still, I think being on the front row for the team it's a good result, especially after the weekend we come from, you know, in São Paulo where we struggled quite a bit. It's nice to be back.”

Perez expects an interesting race with different battle fronts open with Ferrari and Mercedes and also Max.

“I think it’s going to be a very interesting one, you know, given how strong Ferrari will be, Mercedes, you know. With Max it will be an interesting one tomorrow.”

Finally, Perez described the feeling as exciting ahead of the season finale battle he will hold with Leclerc for the second place.

“It’s quite exciting. It’s great to be playing for something in the final race. So it is good.”
