I still remember the C24 the 'Blue Turtle'
Willing to bet that Massa and JV will never forget!!
They have come a long way, I hope with new management
they will improve..I would love to see Massa get from under
the thunder cloud of Ferrari. I think he would find life at
Sauber a big improvement..

I think going to Ferrari would be a massive mistake for Perez. Moving from a car he is clearly comfortable with to a car acknowledged to be a dog will do him no favours.

Look at how well it worked for Fisichella.

@ BuckBundy:

Lot of blokes says the F2012 is a dog. A dog indeed, that under the guidance of a handy driver, has already a win in it's resume.
Hence, given Sergio's ability at the wheel, I think it would not take him too long to start getting goods results with the doggy F2012. Only if he really gets the call from Maranello before the season's end.

Nothing different about my last post, the same as yesterday!
Actually the change you have noticed is your reading
comprehension is improving. Try reading my post without
malice of forethought. Not really difficult, try thinking
don't be surprised by the result you get.
How sweet it is

Perez might want stay at Sauber with a car he is comfortable with and a friendly team atmosphere. The car clearly is strong at race pace and reliable.

This year's Ferrari seems to be a bit of a barge. Remember how Fisichella jumped into Ferrari after placing 2nd at Spa in 2009? He abandoned an improving Force India to drive that year's horrendous Ferrari with nothing to show for it by the end of the season.

Ferrari is planning to follow Sauber's lead when the first major development of the disappointing F2012 car is unveiled soon.
"No doubt about it," Fernando Alonso said after winning the Malaysian grand prix, "they (Sauber) were quicker than us."
The Italian magazine Autosprint have mischievously christened the updated Ferrari a 'Ferrauber', explaining that the rear of the 'B' F2012 will be very similar to Sauber's impressive C31
