Coming off the back of consecutive 100+ points scoring seasons, 2018 was a bit of a setback in that regard for Sergio Perez as he claimed just 62. Considering how the midfield has caught up, this is hardly surprising and he can take solace from the fact that he beat Esteban Ocon for a second straight year and has not been beaten by a teammate since 2014.
He also made another appearance in the podium club as he capitalized on a crazy end to the Grand Prix to claim third place. It proved that Perez's opportunistic nature is still there and if he gets a sniff at a podium, he'' take it without a moment's hesitation.
The two marks against Perez this year are his poor qualifying record against his teammates and his inexplicable move on Sirotkin in Singapore. Outside of those two, it was a solid year for him.
