Looks like Perez did use more kerb than Verstappen during their respective Q3 run. So there might be something to it.
Verstappens mistake in the second corner lost him quite a bit I must say.
Perez used more ?
I see they were using the same through
Tamburello, entry and mid, but max goes wider on exit and loses time.
Villeneuve same amount on way through but Sergio uses a tiny bit more of the exit curb.
Tosa they use the same.
Piratella they use the same.
Acque Minerale Max used more on exit (thats a very nasty curb)
Variante Alta Max used more on enty , mid and exit (they are the most brutal curbs on the circuit)
Rivazza both drivers use the same amount
So I see Max using more overall and more on all the nasty curbs. So I don't believe he held off the curbs in qualifying.
Go and rewatch the video, because this ain't correct.
Rivazza, Perez used more on entry kerbs. Both of them.
Acque Minerale Perez used more on entry curb up towards Variante Alta.
Piratella Perez used more on entry kerb.
Some of the others are minor ones, but the ones listed above is quite substantial.
Looks like there are points where Max tries to avoid the higher kerbs (entries) which are the ones that unsettles the car the most. The exit kerbs probably aren't that bad, even though they are rough. Because as you said, in the Tamburello corner they take similar kerb, but Max is the one that got an oversteer moment and lost time. But yeah. Ifs, buts and maybes
Can't see Perez outqualify Verstappen to many times if Verstappen is hailed to be this 'outworldly' driver. 3-4 times I'd say, when Max has his off days. Perez went 5-15 against Ocon in 2018 I believe. And on average something like 8-12 against Hulkenberg.
