What a fantastic decision!!!

I think Perez and Jenson will compliment each other perfectly.
The team will be able to develop one style of car next year that I think will suit them both. I can't WAIT to see this...

GO JENSON!
GO SERGIO!
GO MCL!

He has been one of the standouts this year, getting multiple podiums, 2 of which were very close to the race winner. His style is similar to Button's so I can't help but feel development-wise, this is a step forward for McLaren. Hamilton almost always had the speed, but his maturity was inconsistent and I can imagine in terms of developing a car, it would have been difficult no matter what they themselves claimed.

I would have thought PDR might have had a sniff at this gig, It must be annoying to be overlooked like this, stuffing vettel in lower formula's constantly and he has two WDC, maybe even a third, the money surely talks.

Now who is getting the ferrari and prepared to drive number two.

Brazil 2006 I was all for ron to give hamilton the car to make his debut after showing his speed in GP2 that year this I was always for hamilton to get the axe. Anyway that his history now and this is a great day for McLaren. No more children to watch over and hold their hand while walking in the world business and motorsport. Two dedicated racers in a proper racing team.
This Mclaren fan welcomes Perez with a smile. Joining Button with a similar style to his own. Only thing it might wreck either one's f1 career if beaten by the other. But on the bright side we gonna see some very good results. Oh and some less crashed Mclarens.

SO SO HAPPY all this is over, finally.
GOODBYE Lewis. Your sometimes erratic driving and often embarrassing behaviour is someone else's problem now.
Hello Perez. You are going to keep Jenson on his toes.
But, as most of us know, Jenson just loves a challenge. It's going to be fun!
Great choice (but a little sorry it wasn't DiResta in a way).
McL have just saved themselves an fing fortune, and should get a truck load of cash from Telmex/Carlos NotsoSlim into the bargain.
Absolutely phenomenal news. Cheesy grins for the rest of the weekend and beyond.
Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!

i bet button was desperate for lewis to leave and for mclaren to get someone like kovi back who had already blown it.
Perez will just beat him everywhere .
Wonder if he can keep up the charm in the face of this.
