A1 TEAM MEXICO SEEKS TO HOLD THE LEAD IN THE SERIES
Sergio Perez again in action during the rookie practice

SEPANG, Malaysia (November 22, 2006) - A1 Team Mexico seeks to hold the lead in the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport standings through their driver Salvador Duran, who will do his best to increase the two-point edge to date that the Mexican team has over the German team (24-22), in round 4 of the above series that will be held at the 5.54-Km. (3.44-mile) Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia.

About the event, the Mexican driver commented: "Now we are going, ready for the next race in Malaysia: We have the responsibility to maintain the lead, winning races and keep achieving podiums. I think the team is in good shape. We want to solve all the problems that we have had and we hope that the bad luck -from the feature race at Beijing, will not be repeated again. We only want to repeat the podiums and keep collecting points."

"We will not think that we are leading the point standings, we will think that we are hungry for winning and we will get as much points as possible according to our abilities," he said.

"I don't know the track. Therefore, it is going to be harder. Last year Luis Diaz raced for Mexico there. I am looking forward to be at Sepang and I want to win for the first time this season. I know the feeling since I won a couple of races last season and I want that feeling back again," he added.

On the other hand, test driver Sergio Perez will participate again in the rookie session. To me, it is an honour to be back with the Mexican team and now that they are leading, it is even more important to me and I hope if they keep doing well, they will get the championship. It is going to be very hard to clinch it, but it can be reached that goal."

"I want to thank mi sponsors and the A1 Mexican Team for this opportunity and I am going to take advantage of it to get experience during the rookie practice and also, I am going to provide as much information as possible".
