Presently, surely DiResta's consistency is a better option than Perez.

Perez is a plonker who races like a holigan. He brings $ that Maca will need very shortly. Carlos Slim's wallet is why Perez got this drive, nothing more, nothing less.

What I think is hilarious, is all of the 'matter of fact' statements about how bad McLaren and their drivers will be next year from all of the, quite obvious, Hamilton fanboys.

I remember the last time the Hamilton fanboys made such bold predictions about what was going to happen the following year...

i'm not a fan boy at all, i actually rose on the chair when Hamilton retired last sunday, because i wanted to see Kimi win

but without car failures, Hamilton would be up fighting for the championship.

don't disconnect your brain from your emotions too much, if you want your laugh to be shared

I would have signed Grosjean or Maldonado. Both r fast, aggrressive and brave. I will like to remind - those criticizing Grosjean &/or Maldonado- that 2XWDC, soon to be 3X WDC Sebastian Vettel was not much different than them during his rookie year. Ofcourse Seb Vettel is younger than them both and then was in his teens and not mid- 20's like them.

Saying that, I think Perez has a similar driving style to JB and hence the decision.

@ swrd

"I forgot to mention Rai and MSc would probably be the best combination of the vacant driver (i both were looking for drives)."

But neither of them ARE looking for a drive... So I don't know what YOU'RE on about...

@ 107SS2009

Exactly... Everyone shouts on and on about MW. But if these people could suggest ONE better option from available drivers I might be more convinced.

The rest seem to also be under some delusion that Whitmarsh makes these decisions alone. NEWSFLASH: Mclaren is NOT one man. These decisions are discussed, evaluated and decided upon over time (Not just based on the last few races) by a group of individuals.
