Better qualifying is Perez's focus

Sauber duo Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi are desperate to improve their performances in qualifying, starting with next weekend's German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
Perez has been 15th fastest in qualifying at the last three races, but has still been able to garner 17 points and believes better displays on Saturdays will help his cause massively.
He said: "For us it remains important to do better in qualifying, so our Saturday performance is what we have to focus on first.
"Our car is quick and, if we could just get everything right this time, we have good chances for a nice race result. In Hockenheim I especially like the stadium part that is, driving wise, challenging and has a great atmosphere."

Meanwhile, Kobayashi added: "I think our car performs well on all the circuits - high speed or slow speed ones - so I am not worried about our performance in Germany. We shall just focus on trying to get our best result there."
Perez is currently ninth in the drivers' standings with 39 points but has twice been on the podium this year. He finished second in Malaysia and was third in Canada but was forced to retire in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Kobayashi has 21 points so far this year, with his best finish coming on the opening weekend of the season when he was sixth at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
