Max Verstappen shows brutal side with Sergio Perez comment after Canadian GP struggles

Sergio Perez finished 12th in qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix after tyre struggles saw him exit in Q2 while team-mate Max Verstappen finished on pole

Reigning world champion Max Verstappen expressed no mercy when speaking about team-mate Sergio Perez after the Mexican struggled in qualifying at the Canadian Grand Prix. While Drivers’ Championship runaway leader Verstappen finished over a second ahead of his nearest rival, Perez had another disappointing qualifying session finishing 12th.

Perez struggled for pace during Q2 as he was left driving on intermediate tyres on a quickly drying track and was consequently eliminated. Verstappen is firm favourite for his sixth race victory in eight races this season as he took pole position and looks set to increase his Drivers’ Championship lead further.

The Dutch driver was challenged during the opening races by Perez, who won the Saudi Arabia GP, but the Mexican has since fallen away in the championship standings. Verstappen showed his ruthless side after qualifying and suggested that he had saved the day again for Red Bull – after Perez also failed to make Q3 in the previous two races.

He told Dutch media: “Well, if I hadn’t been there it would have looked very different for Red Bull. I wouldn’t be happy with not making Q3 three times in a row. I’m not concerned about it either.
