It was a weekend to forget for Sergio Perez who has been in a rich vein of lately after securing a win in Monaco and a podium finish in Baku. The Mexican had pulled himself up in the rankings which had put him right in the mix to challenge the likes of Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc. Keeping that aspect in mind, this weekend in Canada can prove to be quite a dent to championship winning aspirations.

Sergio Perez suffered a session ending crash in Qualifying which meant that he couldn’t make it into Q3. Despite of that, it seemed like he had the pace and the potential to overtake people during the Canadian GP. Unfortunately, it was just not his weekend as he was forced to bail out of the race due to gear box issue. This was only his second retirement of the season after the first race in Bahrain, which saw both the Red Bulls retire.

What made matters worse was Max Verstappen winning the race and in turn extending his lead in the championship to 46 points. But, that wasn’t the only blow the Mexican suffered during the Canadian GP. It’s been confirmed that heavy impact crash during Qualifying caused a strong contracture in his neck. Although he looked perfectly fine as he got out the car, he confirmed that wasn’t the case.

Sergio Perez has revealed that he’s working hard to get fully fit before Silverstone. Speaking to Fox Sports Mexico in a recent interview, the Mexican revealed, “The start of the week is always hard after such a bad day, but I’m fine, recovering from my neck because I have a strong contracture after the crash, which I didn’t feel.

Each race is different. Right now, I am preparing for the strong contracture I had in my neck, and I don’t exercise. I am in pure neck therapy to be at Silverstone at 100%.

Each race works differently because your body is in a different state all the time. There are times that you have to push more cardio, strength or resistance.”

It’s important for Red Bull that both the drivers are fully fit before a pretty important weekend in Silverstone which has been quite a critical weekend in the last few years. We wish the talented Mexican a speedy recovery.
