Marko also doesn’t blame Perez for his struggles in the Austrian Grand Prix, where he slumped to a sixth-place finish.
His main problem arose after a botched overtake of Lando Norris, which Marko claims was the young Brit’s fault.
He said: “I think it’s logical. If you can’t get in front, then you try on the outside.
“That’s where Norris pushed him off the track, and he got a penalty for that as well.’
”That’s what went wrong. Drivers have to give each other space. That was a mistake by Norris.
“He saw Perez there and should have given him space. Perez tried, but it failed. I prefer that to a boring driver who stays behind. He had to try.”
