F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: Perez eyeing ‘big result’ to close best season

Sergio Perez wants one more 'big result' in Abu Dhabi to conclude his and Force India's best-ever F1 season on a high.
Sergio Perez believes Force India is capable of one more 'big result' to bring his and the team's best-ever season in Formula 1 to a fitting close.

With Force India confirming fifth position in the constructors' standings last time out in Brazil, Perez is now well placed to seal at least ninth place in the drivers' reckoning in what will mark the third time in five seasons he has ended up inside the overall top ten.

Peaking with his podium finish in Russia, Perez is keen to bring his year to a fitting close and expects the Yas Marina Circuit to suit his car.

“The 2015 season has gone by so quickly, but I have lots of great memories and I'm very proud of what we have achieved. I think it's probably been my best season in Formula One in terms of results and also the most enjoyable.

“We have grown a lot during the course of the year and we have had some special days, with a highlight being my podium in Russia and my home race in Mexico.

“I think we have the potential for a big result in Abu Dhabi. Things didn't work out for me in Brazil so I'm determined to get back in the points this weekend and finish this great season on a positive note."

Since their chassis upgrade in Britain they are a step ahead of their mid-field competitors, he had some good results but he's not very consistent, his race in Brasil was an absolute joke.

That's always been the weird thing with Perez, When he's on it I reckon he is one of the best out there pacewise, but just when you think ok now he's on a roll...here comes a bogey race again. I'm a fan since his GP2 year when he was teammates with van der Garde who came off of winning the WSBR title and a pretty decent rookie GP2 year. As a Dutch racefan I followed that season closely since it was supposed to be Giedo's year, but at times Perez just crushed him with pace. Also back then, definitely not every race but the times he did the margin was such that you thought 'wow this guy is special, he'll learn the consistency and then he'll be really good'. But now a couple of years into his F1 carreer, still not really consistent.
