Sergio Perez has admitted that settling for a scrappy points finish was the best Red Bull could have hoped for at the Singapore Grand Prix after claiming that "nothing really worked" for the Austrian team.
Despite being knocked out in Q2 once again, Perez, facing an uphill struggle at a demanding circuit, guided his RB19 into eighth place.
Having initially lined up 13th, he weaved his way up the grid, despite missing an opportunity to pit for new tyres after the Safety Car was deployed.
However, Perez's performance was not without controversy, as stewards imposed a five-second penalty for an incident involving Williams' Alex Albon.
Post-race, the 33-year-old struck a downbeat tone and rued the team's inability to use the Safety Car disruption to claw themselves back into contention.
