sergio Perez leaves McLaren!!
Didn’t know about Magnussen, I was hoping for the hulk and Perez at lotus. I really like Perez and it’s a shame drivers don’t get more of a chance these days.
On another note I have been really impressed with Grosean over the second half of the season. He seemed to spend the first half being over his desire to crash into everything/one but going slowly and has now speed up somewhat.Posted 4 years ago
Er.. Perez was pushed. The news about the change has been speculated for a week and unofficially announced a couple of days ago.
Anyway, Magnusssen ‘s dad was a classic case of failing to deliver on huge promise. He was expected to be the next Schumacher but never delivered.
They say that his son has his head better screwed on. Fingers crossed. I think Button needs some pushing as do McLPosted 4 years agoI_AcheMember
The problem for Perez was the crap car he was given, he was showing his potential from his first race.
McLaren seem to have a crap car every other year, funnily enough they also have two development teams. They work on cars for alternate years. As much as I like Marin Whitmarch, Ron needs to steep in and sort it out.Posted 4 years ago
Thought Perez had finally been showing his
He’s been consistently slower than button in races. The last week being a case in point. He’s obviously a decent driver but McL reckon that they can do better. That’s why he’s going.Posted 4 years agothepuristSubscriber
dave_rudabar – Button’s got a contract for 2014 & IIRC an option on 2015 as well when they go to Honda power.
The last rookie to join McLaren did OK, so hope Magnussen is the real deal.
Interesting that Lotus apparently approached Schumi to replace Kimi for the last 2 races as well. Bet he wanted paying up front though so no deal there! 😉Posted 4 years ago
i’m getting to the point i’ve lost faith in Button TBH, he/the team just seems to be getting it wrong so often this season
I’m not really sure you can blame the car on Button, can you? He’s never been a brilliant qualifier but he seems to be getting things fairly right in the races. It seems to me that Button’s getting about as much out of it as they can and don’t forget that unlike those in the chapionship hunt this year, McL haven’t been developping this car unless it carries forward to next year.
The theory is that they run Button and Magnussen in 2014, see who does best and if they manage to get Alonso on board, get rid of one of them.Posted 4 years ago
a good No.2 driver who brings in consistent points all season long.
Who despite all the crowing when he was teamed with Hamilton about how he was going to be destroyed, outscored him during his time at McL?
Button’s not the fastest driver but he’s better than a number 2 and in complex situations, probably one of the best, if not the best. That could be a real asset in 2014 with all the new regs and potential complexities.Posted 4 years ago
