Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has stated that Perez is “finding his form” at the right time of the season with five races left in the current season. 
 “He’s been a bit under the weather this weekend as well. He’s had a bit of a cold so that was tough not to have the drinks system for him but the way he managed the race," Horner said. 
“You can see his confidence is growing. That’s the second race in a row that he’s on the podium now, his home race coming up. He’s finding his form which is crucial for us at this time of the year.”
Mercedes are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Red Bull Racing-Honda and McLaren-Mercedes respectively.
