Perez admits he was dizzy in Valencia
25 June, 2011
Jun.25 (GMM) Mexican rookie Sergio Perez admits he felt dizzy on Friday after returning to the wheel of his Sauber, despite reports immediately after practice that he was 100% fit.
Perez pulled out of the recent Canadian Grand Prix weekend when he felt dizzy, two weeks after his heavy qualifying crash in Monaco.
But his Sauber team stated on Friday that Perez will contest the rest of the event on the streets of Valencia.
“At the beginning of the first session I still felt dizzy,” Perez told news agency EFE, “but as it went on I felt better and in the end I felt good.
“On Saturday I hope to be 100 per cent. I think it’s a normal situation as the body gets slowly used to it again. The second session was much better,” he revealed.
Perez said he had trained and prepared hard for his European Grand Prix comeback, almost a month after his hospitalisation in Monaco.
“I think we have succeeded,” he added.
