Yeah, he's more than capable of winning a few races but until he cuts out the mistakes I can't see a WDC next year (assuming the car is fast and reliable), Alonso Alonso is in his prime and Seb seems to keep getting better, have to beat that pair 1st...not to mention his team mate is pretty much unbeatable when the car is to his liking. And there's lulu assuming Merc by some miracle produce a competitive car.....and Kimi who could win the WDC is the Lotus is good.

Whitmarsh has said that perez a) is spending less time in Mexico than he thinks and b) is going on a diet/up the gym more regularly. We then need to see perez pressuring himself, which may be his weak point.

@ Max Smoot another Mclaren gem? Like the last 5 yrs? I don't think so. Mclaren is not winning any Championships anytime time soon. They need to make major personnel changes.

Perez is a capable young driver with it all to prove. It has been noted in the paddock that his personalit would need to step up to F1 standard.
His rather serious demeanour hasn't won him many friends............

@ Pole Position: I should have said that their car is a flawed gem, but I hope you'd agree that the standard of engineering and technical delivery is at the highest, and McL do keep on developing throughout the season. But they choke (often) during pitstops. Throwing it away like that indicates something about their mindset. That said, if the car is neutral enough for JB without sacrificing performance (a big ask), then Perez may have a good year since (someone above said) that they share an approach to the tires. Who knows...next year's more fragile Pirellis may play to those strengths.
