3 poor quali performances from Koba now. You're not going to stay in F1 if you're a second behind your 22 year old team-mate. I'm a big fan but I can understand why people feel he's overrated. He really needs to put in a genuinely spectacular performance like his teammate to have any hop of staying in F1 and getting a good car someday.

The Saubers haven't clicked at any track since Suzuka. It only performs on tracks with many highspeed corners. Barcelona, Spa, Suzuka, Montreal, Monza.. The tracks with slow speed sections, they struggle with.

If the prediction of 1 stops for tomorrow is true, it gives them little chance to spring a surprise..

Zeyar, Please remember all three tracks are not Sauber's car favorite tracks.
Most disappointment out come was Force India because Dubai track is usually suit to Force India Mercedes power car.
If Sauber has beat Mercedes team in championship and then Koba may be retained his seat at Sauber.
Sauber know they can have Mexican sponsor for 2013 regardless of Mexican driver in the cockpit.
All Mexican Sponsor will go to McLaren in 2014.
Sauber team boss Monisha told the press nothing connection to next year seat at Sauber with Koba performance in this year. Outsider can't judge on how Koba performance is doing because the insiders know about their car performance.
Perez backer Carlos Slim family will put money on his car development and to win Championship. Koba has no back since Toyota walk away from F1.
I'm very interesting Perez driving Mclaren Mercedes and how he will develop relationship with his team mate Jensen Button. However, he will be very lucky to not having Lewis Hamilton a
