Perez Never Given Orders To Move

 

Sergio Perez revealed that he would have listened to team orders if they had requested such a move, but he changed his plan after no such order came……

 

Sergio revealed to the press that although the team relayed Ocon’s message to the Spanish driver, they did not instigate ‘team orders’ but allowed him to make his own choice.

 

“The problem is that the press has created these stories – because I’ve never disobeyed an order,” Perez explained.

 

“All we had was a discussion about whether to let Ocon pass me. But I increased my speed and approached Ricciardo – and that was it. At no time did I ignore my team.”

 

“I am here to give the best results to Force India and if I get an order, I will follow it. But here, there was no order.”

 

So it seems Perez deemed it necessary not to move as he instigated his own attack on Daniel Ricciardo, it simply didn’t come to fruition.

 

With Ocon in his most competitive form last weekend, was Perez right to do what he did?
