“In Monza I finished on the podium but I had the penalty; Russia, three laps to go I was on the podium," Perez, who is fifth on the standings with 135 points, said after the Turkish Grand Prix. 
“It’s been like coming already for many races but certainly it’s nice, especially like today [Sunday] where I felt so uncomfortable with the car. 
"And we didn’t have quite the pace to match the Mercs, and I feel like we maximised our result today and I’m sure if we are able to do that for the next six races, we can still win the championship.”
Mercedes are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Red Bull Racing-Honda and McLaren-Mercedes respectively.
