Sergio Perez says he is confident of adding to his points tally at his 'home' race in the United States this week.

Perez has finished in the top 10 in every race since Formula 1 returned from its summer break and is sure of continuing that run in Austin this weekend, which he classifies as a home race due to its proximity to his native Mexico.

"I arrive in Austin feeling positive," he said. "I’ve scored points in every race since the summer break – five races in a row – and I think we’ve maximised what we could get out of those races.

"We’ve been racing hard, taking some chances, and making some excellent decisions with the strategy so hopefully we can continue to do so in the next few race."

"Austin is a great race and because it’s so close to Mexico it feels like my ‘home’ race.

"There are usually a lot of Mexican fans and you feel a lot of support because the grandstands are full and there are always a lot of Mexican flags. I enjoy the track, especially the first sector and the uphill turn one, which is quite unusual. You can brake extremely late for this corner and it’s a good overtaking opportunity. From there you go into the quick corners: turns three, four and five, which are a lot of fun to drive."
