Kneejerk signing by McLaren. The only time Perez secured good results is when his strategist has done something clever. Never shown outright pace or raw aggression unlike Kamui. Overrated driver, both Hulkenberg and Kobayashi are better prospects, no idea why McLaren didn't hire them instead.

Checo is a bit of an unknown quantity, a couple of really great drives this season but often flew under the radar. Top team for him next season and I think he'll do quite well. He's also a likeable young chap unlike the driver he's replacing...

No one cares about how you start its how you finish that matters, This guy crumbled when the season reached the "business end" or did the pressure of signing for McLaren got to him.

Matched Kamui with two years less experience and a nice wedge off cash from Mexico. McLaren have taken the gamble that he has more potential than Hulkenberg for instance, plus Hulkenberg may cause more problems for Jenson Button, which would be no good for team harmony.

I think jenson causes his own problems, he's there one weekend and not the next. I've thought for a while that Perez's results could have been better at times, had they gone for pace rather than making the tyres last. Either way it will make for interesting times ahead for mclaren.

I am no supporter of mclaren but for me when Lulu left mclaren won the day.
When years long partnerships end, there is always a winner and a loser, as the Lulu/mclaren divorce has been finalized, mclaren came out the winner, Lulu might be making more money, but mclaren has a younger driver, one who is bringing money with him instead of asking for more, one who stands quietly while managing tyres and pushing the big boys hard, one who is willing to work with management and team and not against, and with a brilliant smile at that.
Perez have a lot to learn, he will no doubt learn, as to what level he will develop at as a driver we will all have to wait and see.
