Sergio Perez has revealed he was suffering from dizzy spells throughout qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix. 

The Mexican was still able to put his Racing Point fourth on the grid, one place behind team-mate Lance Stroll.

Perez’s Q3 didn’t go exactly to plan after his first run was invalidated due to exceeding track limits, before setting a lap good enough to put him ahead of both Ferraris and the Red Bull of Max Verstappen.

"I didn’t feel 100% physically during the qualifying,'' Perez said. "I was getting dizzier throughout the qualifying and that is not great to have.

"I am a bit sore on the neck from yesterday. It happened suddenly. My neck hurts a bit but I suddenly started to feel dizzy in some parts of the circuit. Even so, with all that, to be fourth is a good result for tomorrow."

Mercedes and Racing Point are the only teams to have progressed into the final part of qualifying on the medium tyres.

Perez is confident this strategic decision will give Racing Point the upper-hand over its nearest competitors in Sunday’s race.

"I think it is a great result for the team,'' Perez added. "We looked good all the way through. I am happy with the team result and hopefully tomorrow we can put it together for the race and score a lot of points for the team. 

"We have a good pace. We are starting with the medium compound so I think that can benefit us tomorrow. We believe that the softer tyre can struggle during the first stint."

Racing Point will be hoping to score big points over its midfield competitors with McLaren only managing eighth and ninth in qualifying.
