Podium proves Perez's top-team credentials

May 31 - Sergio Perez hopes his Monaco grand prix podium serves to remind the F1 world that he is still a driver worthy of a top team.

While it is often said that the Mexican's Force India teammate Nico Hulkenberg - the reigning Le Mans champion - is the more talented, Perez has been on the F1 podium six times versus the German's tally of zero.

Asked if Sunday's Monaco grand prix podium is a sign he now deserves another shot with a top team, Perez said: "Well, I hope not only this one (podium) but what I have been doing over the past years."

The 26-year-old thinks his ill-fated single season with McLaren in 2013 has tainted his perception in F1 circles.

"I had a really tough time at McLaren and it seems that this is what everyone remembers," said Perez. "No one remembers my time at Sauber, my time at Force India.

"All I can do is keep doing my job, keep doing as well as I can, keep improving as a driver.

"I think in the last years I have improved a lot," Perez continued. "I'm a more complete driver in all aspects, qualifying, race, race pace, more experience. So if the opportunity ever comes, I will be ready for it and I'm up for it.

"If not, all I can keep doing is my job."

  • Jazzi: "... so far in 2018"? What a laugh ?. Its pitiful to see a former world champion, superb driver and thoroughly pleasant chap get treated so shoddily. Respect to the Iceman for maintaining his class and dignity amidst Ferrari's disgraceful practices. They self-destructed last season, poetic justice some may say. If so, the implosion may be even worse this year because Kimi is genuinely competive. He out-qualified Seb in Melbourne, and in the last 2 qualifying sessions, he was only edged off pole by Seb in the final flying rounds of Q3. Yet, he still gets screwed by the Ferrari strategist in the races. Pathetic! View Post
