Subscriptions & booklets

A on Tuesday (3.9.2015) Force India announced the contract extension by Nico Hülkenberg for another two years. Teammate Sergio Perez has not yet been confirmed for 2016. So it's no wonder that the Mexican was pitted about his own future on Thursday (September 3rd, 2015) in Monza. 'The fact that Nico has renewed is great news for the team because he is a great driver,' said Perez at first handing out a few flattering words to the Le Mans winner.

Hulkenberg wants Perez to be a team-mate

'As far as I'm concerned, the news will come pretty soon. I have a contract with Force India, and that's my priority. I hope we can announce it before the next race.'

In any case, Hulkenberg hopes that Perez will remain by his side next season. 'Sergio and I make a good combination. We complement each other well and push each other.'

In Belgium, Perez did a lot of self-promotion. In qualifying and the race, the 25-year-old raced to fifth place, which earned him ten points. According to Perez, things could have gone even further in the race. 'Unfortunately, the wind had changed. Our car is a bit vulnerable. At the same time, we didn't have the best pit stop timing. When we got out again, the Virtual Safety Car was called. That cost us six seconds. All in all, I think that we could have fought for third place with Grosjean. '

Monza should be Force India

Both drivers expect a good result for the Italian GP. The VJM08 should like the high-speed course in Monza. Above all, the Mercedes power in the rear should help a lot. 'There's no reason why we shouldn't be strong at Monza,' said Perez. 'In Spa, the car felt very good during practice. I assume that we can finish in the points,' added Hülkenberg, who was unable to start the race in Belgium due to drive problems.

Perez has had more confidence in the B version of Force India since Belgium. 'Not everything went smoothly in the previous races. For example, my training accident in Hungary set me back. The car made good progress at Spa because I had a smooth weekend. We were able to develop the set-up and balance in the right direction feel more comfortable in the nowCar. '

Don't worry about Pirelli tires

Because of the blown tires on Nico Rosberg's and Sebastian Vettel, the Force India pilots are not worried. 'If something fundamental was wrong with the tire, they would not have been able to change it anyway because of the production lead times. I have faith in Pirelli. I think that the new regulations guarantee even more safety for Monza. '

For the Italian GP, ​​the tire supplier stipulates higher starting pressures and lower camber values. This should relieve the tire flanks.' The high tire pressures are above all create a different feeling in the outlap and in the first following laps, 'says Perez. Hülkenberg, on the other hand, does not believe in major effects.
