Perez, Hulkenberg target weekend glory

Force India drivers Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg can't wait to get back to racing and especially this weekend's F1 Belgian Grand Prix.

Perez is a big fan of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, describing it as an "an amazing track", in an interview with The Checkered Flag.

"The first sector and the run through Eau Rouge feel very special in a Formula One car and it's definitely a highlight of the year. 

"The track can also produce really good racing because there are a few corners where you have a good chance to overtake," said Perez.

"I think the characteristics of the track and its emphasis on power and top speed should suit our car," he continued. "You also have to expect wet weather at some point during the weekend so it could be quite unpredictable.

"We have shown some good pace in the last few races and we should be in a position to get a good result."

Team-mate Hulkenberg, who currently sits in ninth spot on the F1 standings, is also keen on the Belgian GP.

"Even though it's only been a month since the last race, you miss being in the car and the buzz of racing, so I'm definitely ready to begin the second half of the season," said Hulkenberg.

"We go there hoping to bounce back from a tough race in Hungary. We are competitive and I am confident we can start the second part of the season strongly."
