Sergio Perez's track record at the Hungaroring is oddly poor, with the Force India driver achieving a top ten finish in Budapest just once, back in 2013 with McLaren.

The Mexican has shown remarkable points-scoring consistency in the past 12 months however and will likely draw on that strength to capture a strong result next weekend before the F1 community enjoys its summer break.

"You always want a good result before you break up because it's a long wait until you get back in the car," said Perez.

"For whatever reason the Hungaroring hasn't been kind to me for the last few years so it's time to put that right."

Perez believes the overall efficiency this season of Force India's VJM10 should enable him to extract a good result.

"I think we can be quick in Budapest. We have been competitive on every type of track this year so there's nothing to worry about in Hungary.

"I like the twisty layout of the track – which reminds me of a street circuit – and when you find your rhythm it's very enjoyable to drive there.

"Overtaking isn't easy so you've got to deliver in qualifying or you know it's going to be a tough race on Sunday, [meaning] track position is so important."

Seventh in the drivers' standings, just behind Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez says he is currently driving at his best, as his remarkable run in the points attests.

"It's been a satisfying first half of the year," he says.

"I'm proud of the team and the work we have done to improve our car. I also feel I'm performing at my best and driving well.

"I have big hopes for the second half of the year and I feel we have the potential to get some very good results."
