Sergio Perez believes that Force India has yet to peak, despite the team enjoying their best start to a Formula 1 season.

Force India sits in third place in the constructors' championship ahead of this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix but Perez reckons the full potential has yet to be exploited.

Perez has endured a mixed season having finished on the podium in Bahrain but scrapping to make it into the points in Australia and China, while he was unable to start in Malaysia.

"On the one hand I’m happy," he said. "The podium in Bahrain was very important; it helped me get to know the team properly and gave us all something special to celebrate. At the same time I feel there is more to come and that we’ve yet to achieve our full potential. Bahrain has been the only weekend where everything has worked out perfectly. If we can have more weekends like that I think we can get some more great results."

Perez says that the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the venue of this weekend's round, is one of his favourite circuits.

"I enjoy Barcelona and for me it’s one of the best circuits on the whole calendar," he said.

"It’s very complete with a mix of everything and some very long, quick corners. It’s tough physically, especially on the neck with so many right hand corners, but it’s a fun place to drive a Formula One car. It’s always a race where teams bring new updates so it’s going to be interesting to see how everyone will perform there."
