Having led the call for F1 drivers to receive 'full clarification' from the FIA as to the events that led to Jules Bianchi's accident during the Japanese Grand Prix, Sergio Perez says it was good to be back in action and focusing on a race weekend.
Ahead of this weekend's inaugural Russian Grand Prix in Sochi – just days after the race in Suzuka – Sahara Force India driver Perez reflected a desire within the F1 paddock to gain a greater understanding
from the governing body.
Even so, with track action having now begun around the new Sochi Autodrom venue, Perez admits it is good to be looking forward, whilst maintaining his thoughts remain with Bianchi.
“It is always good to try and get some focus back and then start to look forward,” he told Crash.net
. “You wish you can do something different but unfortunately it doesn't work like this and there is nothing we can do at the moment but keep supporting him.
“As a driver, we know every time you get in the car you might not come back, that doesn't change things but we just want to support him as much as we can.”
Perez completed the two F1 practice sessions in 14th place overall.
