Sergio Perez Biography

From over-rated pay driver, to Lewis Hamilton’s successor at McLaren, and now back to mid-table obscurity, Sergio Perez has come along way since his debut five years ago.

The Mexican had a patchy start to life at Force India, but he excelled last season and drove better than ever before. He soundly beat his renowned team-mate, Nico Hulkenberg.

Perez’s F1 career stated at Sauber in 2011 as team-mate to Kamui Kobayashi. Perez is one of many recent additions to the F1 grid who brings his own sponsorship, in this case from a Mexican company, Telmex, who entered an immediate agreement with Sauber.

Due to these circumstances, Perez was welcomed with a lukewarm approach from many inside F1, despite him  finishing 2nd in the GP2 world championship in the previous year.

On his debut Perez, or ‘checo’, revealed his greatest strength, tyre preservation, as he stopped for fresh rubber just once en route to finishing 7th.

Although the cars were disqualified, it didn't take log for Perez to net his first points, with a ninth placed finish in Spain. After a heavy crash in qualifying at Monaco’s infamous tunnel exit, Perez missed two races due to the injuries.

A solid end to the season brought him a career best 7th in Britain to finish overall with 14 points. Despite scoring less than half the points of his team mate, Perez was quickly re-signed for the next season.

The 2012 Sauber car was a clear improvement, and Perez’s tyre skills came to fruition very early again. Only a last lap slide saw him go from 5th to 8th in Australia, before almost claiming victory in Malaysia.

In wet conditions Perez was in superb form as chased Fernando Alonso’s slow Ferrari, a poor attempt at an over take cost him an almost certain victory, but a 2nd place did bring him his first ever podium.

A strong series of points in the middle of the season, culminating in another superb drive to finish 3rd in Monza, prompted McLaren to sign him for the 2013 season.

However, Perez’s form dramatically dipped as he struggled for points in the final 6 races. He finished with a total of 66 points, and only six more than Kobayashi.

Perez had a troubled 2013 season. Regular crashes earned him criticism from some of the sport’s biggest names, while he struggled to control McLaren’s poor car.

There were moments of brilliance from the Mexican, but ultimately it was a doomed year which saw him finish 24 points behind Jenson Button. McLaren acted quickly to replace him, but luckily Force India were waiting in the wings.

A podium finish in Bahrain was the highlight of an up and down season in 2014, but he finished 37 points behind Hulkenberg.

However, he was outstanding 2015 season as he collected regular points and a podium in Russia. The driver McLaren thought they were getting has finally arrived. The return of the Mexican Grand Prix is of course very nice for Mexican Perez, who can drive a real home grand prix now.

The 2016 season was a great success for Perez. The Force India VJM09 which is fitted with the very powerful Mercedes power unit could even beat the Williams this season. Perez scored 3 podiums in 2016 and outperformed his high profiled team mate Nico Hulkenberg.
