Sergio Perez lamented a poor tyre choice that left him 17th in qualifying.

"It was really bad, not what we were expecting", said the Mexican. "We went for the wrong tyre choice, we were completely screwed by that. We'll learn from that, it was a mistake from the whole team and myself and we have to look forward"

Perez had topped Q2 while the session was suspended due to torrential rain, but he wasn't looking back on missed opportunities.

"I think it was the right decision. The track was not safe there"

Nevertheless, when asked if similar conditions on Sunday would leave the race able to go ahead, Perez was emphatic in his response.

"Yeah, I think so"

Perez added that he was targeting a top ten finish in the race.

"I think tomorrow we can be aggressive on the strategy and fight for points."
