Melbourne: Force India’s Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon set the 11th and 14th fastest time in qualifying of the Formula One season-opening Australian Grand Prix here on Saturday.
Perez narrowly missed out on Q3 with the best time of 1:25.081 while Ocon, in his first race for the team, was almost half a second slower than his more experienced teammate.
The Mexican, however, was reprimanded by the stewards for not adhering to FIA guidelines.
