Perez chasing ‘dream’ result

Sergio Perez is hoping to cap the "biggest day" of his F1 career with a good points-haul at the Mexican Grand Prix.

This weekend Formula 1 will return to Mexico for the first time since 1992.

However, it's not just the sport that is back in the country but Perez as well.

It has been 12 years since he last raced on home soil and the Force India driver reckons it will be a "dream come true."

He said: "It is definitely a big dream for me to be able to race in my home country.

"It has been more than 12 years since I've raced in my home country so definitely it will be the biggest day of my career on Sunday.

"To race in front of my country is something very special. It is going be the most special day of my career no matter what result I get on Sunday.

"But I really hope can have a great result and share it with all the fans who are coming here.

"But definitely it will be a dream come true."

The 25-year-old arrived at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit in flying form.

He has scored points in five of the last six races including a podium result at the Russian GP.

"We have been having a good couple of races, the last six have been really strong for us and I think there is a really good chance we can keep up the momentum.

"I am looking forward to that and trying to score as many points as possible on the weekend for the team."
