Haha, they basically wanted a fresh young gun to replace Hammy who could challenge for race wins from the get-go. Perez isn't that kind of guy, he hasn't proven himself worthy of a main manufacturer drive and i suspect mclaren will have one of their worst seasons in a while this year.

Judging by the first two practice sessions in Australia they will be trading places down the order, unless there is a great improvement they will struggle to get into the points.

Don't think so mate. Button wouldn't be in the seat if they thought that! we all know how McLaren work they would have got rid of him by now if they thought that. You forget they are running business which it is. And we all know if you don't preform you get the boot!

Plus they all have targets to meet in their contracts that they sign. So Perez knows from the start he would have to be beating his team mate as any driver would.
