Sergio Perez explains what happened to him on the warm-up lap of the season-opening race for F1 2021.

As he was preparing to lineup on the 11th grid slot for the first race of the season in Bahrain, Perez's car suddenly came to a standstill necessitating a delay to the start of the race. Fortunately, the Mexican did manage to get going again., though he would make the race start from the pitlane compromising his Red Bull debut.

"In the middle of the corner, everything just shut down," Perez told RacingNews365.com among others.

"I was about to jump out of the car and all of a sudden I start to listen to Jonathan. I turn on the car and kept going.

"It was about getting the ignition back. I couldn't hear anything, I couldn't hear the engineers and then it went back, so that was good."

The Mexican went on to state that he didn't really enjoy working his way back up the order after starting dead last but did enjoy learning about his Red Bull car as the race progressed.

"Not really, because it was like one after the other," Perez said in response to fighting through the field.

"My race never settled down, you are against the time all the time.

"But I enjoy the understanding with the car and that we are starting to feel one another a bit more. So in that regard, I'm pleased."

The Red Bull driver also confessed that he still needed to work on his driving style to better suit the way the RB16B handles.

"There are some specific problems related to to the way I'm driving the car, I have to adjust my driving to the car," Perez explained.

"First, I need to make sure that I'm driving the way the car needs to be driven and then work from there. But it's taking me a while because it's very different to what I'm used to."

Perez in the end managed to finish fifth overall, scoring some valuable points for Red Bull. The Mexican though will be hoping for a better slice of fortune when the F1 grid reconvenes at the Emilia Romangna Grand Prix in Imola.
